Georges Chakra has mastered the art of sculpting the body of the woman with beautiful creations. Showing his collection for the fourth time at New York Fashion Week, the designer is known to dress Hollywood celebrities wondering what to wear on the red carpet. The spring / summer 2011 collection, Edition by Georges Chakra was created for the glamorous woman, who is seductive and fun loving. Marching confidently on the runway, the models wore dresses that perfectly fit the curves of a modern woman. The dresses were presented in a wide palette of neutral tones and classic cuts with vibrant colors such as turquoise, saffron and coral. The satin band enveloped the body like a second skin. Sometimes parallel, sometimes intersecting, the collection ended up forming a cage or neck accentuating the hips, these bands followed the movement of the body for a perfectly defined silhouette. Knowing the designer’s audience well, Georges Chakra offered dresses for every taste. Women more with a rock edge will fall in love with the black dress adorned with pearls and crystal of the same color, while the wife will love the sophisticated cocktail dress that has a hue of gold and is woven with satin. Luxury is in the details, the line that used the high cut based on multiple pieces could be more refined, at times there existed an abundance of detailing sometimes removing the chic and tasteful originating piece. Overall though it was a strong collection. If you do not want to pass unnoticed at social gatherings, the collection, Edition by Georges Chakra is what you need to bring out the femme fatale in you, from Montreal to Hollywood.
