A picture is worth a thousand words they say... As a designer, textiles are worth a million words. They inspire everything I make and inexplicably speak to the design of a garment. A delicate silk will glide beautifully across a woman's curves, an organic and earthy knit will evoke feelings of comfort and a crisp white cotton will make you feel fresh and ready to face the morning sun. Sequins and lace, well... those combined in the right way bring out a feeling of confidence and romance in a way that is truly beautiful.
This collection was inspired by a combination of these and other beautiful fabrics - most are organic or mill ends and were chosen for the feelings they evoke as well as for their sustainability. I wanted this collection to breathe, to inspire sexy confidence and maybe... a little romance.
Here's a sneak peak at the Simone's Rose SS'11 photo shoot, shot in Traverse Bay, Manitoba. The styling for the shoot was inspired by Brigitte Bardot and the idea of a woman lost and forgotten on a deserted island, waiting for her love to return.
