Spring-Summer 2011 – Looking to Marrakesh for inspiration, this collection put exotic into the Moroccan way of dressing. Plunging necklines and backless tops made way for a glamorous yet classy collection.  The collection was divided into day time casual elegance and night time glamour. To begin, the compilation of colours established the Moroccan theme. Purple, green and blue acknowledged the style for Spring/Summer; block colours. Gold waist belts kept the shape of the clothes, and did so in the Moroccan way with cord tassels. Silk tapered trousers were dominant thus the low crotch is still on show – this trend will be here for at least another season. The brown silk jumpsuit epitomised the casual elegance at the beginning of the collection, whilst the seductive black dresses captured the night time glamour. Embellished geometric designs were made into incredible tribal like dresses. Feathered dresses encapsulated exotica. Thus together the collection of sophisticated and daring dresses creating innovative chic: very classy and incredibly elegant.
