This collection was a gilded and pleated assortment of dresses, jumpsuits and separates. Pulling inspiration from “the dynasty of Egypt, the goddess of life and creativity”, Alessandra Meskita’s offering for the 2015’s spring/summer celebrated the allure of the modern woman
Apart from the use of gold and hand pleating in almost every design, prints were incorporated in to some of the designs. These prints were subtle and features hieroglyphics, lions, Egypt’s Nile blossoms and shades of the Sahara Desert in a number of different silhouettes. Also shown were bodysuits and swimsuits, paired with jackets and sometimes bottoms. The standout pieces, oddly enough in a sea of gold and shimmer, were the white dresses. Two of them with beautiful bodices had skirts made with a sheer shimmery hand pleated fabric; the other was a stunning white column maxi dress with a key hole neckline paired with a large gold cuff neckpiece.
Although an impactful and memorable collection, hemlines could have been lower to add some sophistication that is more of a representation of the modern woman and the goddesses of lore. That aside, the use of metallic and shimmery fabrics, hand pleating, gold, prints and soft tones in varying combinations was perfectly balanced. That balance worked because it did not overwhelm the woman wearing it but instead showed her off as the goddess she truly is.
