Simone's Rose - Fall 2010 Collection

Well, well - here we are smack in the middle of summer and already getting ready for Fall!  Even though it seems early, according to the fashion world I am reeeeally late with this collection.  In reality, the fashion world works about a year ahead of time but, since my sweet little label is a new venture I've been doing a lot of catching up with the fashion schedule.  I recently visited my home province of Manitoba to shoot my Spring 2011 collection so I'm somewhat caught up in that regards.  I'll keep you posted on that soon enough!  Now that I'm back in Montreal, the focus is on getting this Fall collection out there for all you lovely fashionistas.

Designers often get asked what their inspirations are, who their influences are and what it's "all" about.  To tell you the truth, I'm one of those designers that is really influenced by everything around me and more often than not, I just 'go with the flow'.  This season though, I got caught up in multiple episodes (or more specifically - seasons) of Mad Men.  I gobbled it up and fell in love with Joan Holloway.  I mean seriously, who wouldn't!?  Her classic and tailored style is irresistible and hella sexy.  So - there it is, the Simone's Rose Fall 2010 collection is inspired by the sassy secretary style & textiles of the 50's and 60's along with Japanese kimono influences which I can't seem to get away from.  Don't worry - I haven't left out the famous kimono wrap top!  I'll also be adding more of these in new fall kimono fabrics as the season progresses.

Have a peek and let me know what you think!  Hopefully it's a collection that would have made my grandmother proud.   I'll be adding the collection to my Etsy shop within the next week and I welcome anyone who would like to place wholesale or personal orders.
