Nolcha Fashion Week; from London to New York


{mosimage} The catwalk
shows were held on Monday 11th Feb in the Crystal Ballroom at The Mayfair Hotel
open to a standing room only for the first of six shows. Le Nac (Netherlands)
showcased simple yet elegant feminine pieces with beautiful fitted cuts. This
designer complimented the collection by implementing a selection of fabulous
handmade hats by New York designer Ms Bo Dangles. Following this DMG (Columbia)
featured their exquisite, chic white coat collection which left an irresistible
impact especially in the attention to detail and gigantic buttons. Fine artist
turned fashion designer Laurance Rassin’s (USA) show was bursting with colour
and energy, the abstract prints on amazing silk dresses were reminiscent of a
modern contemporary Picasso piece.

shows began with Georgie W Couture. Fabulous darling was the word…English tea
party was the theme. Striking yet simple pieces were strutted down the catwalk
of this British designer. Selphie Bong (Indonesia) showed striking evening
looks with an edge. Using large beading and ornate accents her dresses were
both glamorous yet wearable. Closing the catwalk shows was Qipao by Jane
(China) who took the traditional Qipao and updated it by using modern prints
and lengths, yet still keeping in line with the strict quality hand tailoring
expected of such fine garments. The designer’s footwear was provided by
Isabella Zocchi Collezione’s A/W 08/09 line which complimented the looks
perfectly with her ultra luxe style.



off the week were several networking events including the launch of Profile
NYC. On Tuesday night Profile sponsored by FashionCapital and Nolcha celebrated
their London/New York collaboration with cocktails at the Vendome Lounge in
