AW14 – Rhythm





We are delighted to present you the new Autumn – Winter collection 2014, which have  been covered by some of the press mentioned below: 




Imagine the hypnotic beat of African drums, the seductive rhythm of salsa and dancing to samba on a balmy night in Rio, and you have the spirit of the Eki Orleans AW14 collection.  Music has always been a powerful source of inspiration for Eki Orleans Creative Director, Hazel Aggrey-Orleans and this season she translated her love for Afro-cuban music into an extraordinary collection, aptly named Rhythm.

 


Featuring the Eki Orleans signature silks and ethereal chiffons, the Rhythm collection is replete with exquisite garments that seem to move to their own harmonious beat.  “I wanted to capture the rawness of the African drum and the melodic elements of samba, in a way that inspired spontaneity, fun and playfulness”, explained the designer.  Using a dazzling array of golds and blues in sensual and sophisticated silhouettes, the designer created modern and elegant pieces that are fun and playful.




I had a fabulous time working on this collection, thanks to the wonderful and creative team I was surrounded by:

         – Model: Rafaelly Xavier
         – Photographer: Margarita Lievano
         – Hairstylist: Regina Meessen
       MUA: Karen Salandy
