A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of viewing Canadian designer, Cassie Dee‘s Fall/Winter 2012 Collection. Her inspiration came from the anticipation of Rebecca Serle’s “When You Were Mine”, the spin-off to the story of Romeo and Juliet, told from the perspective of Rosaline.
The collection was full of bold colour, impeccable tailoring, and was designed with a strong woman in mind. A adored the colour palette of mustard yellow, rich burgundy, royal blue, red, with black and white.
I liked the element of leather throughout the collection. The looks were feminine with an edge. This is a style of dress I personally love. It’s modern and sexy.
The presentation was lovely. It was like a moving art installation. While we and the models moved throughout the room, a cellist, wearing a Cassie Dee creation and playing classical music. Classical music, bold colour, Romeo and Juliet, and beautiful designs made for a fantastic Fall/Winter Preview.
