Dion Lee Intersection miniskirt
Inspired by the construction of clothing, traditional tailoring techniques are cleverly morphed with experimental treatments, resulting in cutting-edge garments that are also highly functional – working women seek out the designer’s sharp jackets just as discerning party girls clamber for his inventive cocktail frocks.
It is a duality that seems to inform every aspect of Lee’s work – modern verses classic, structured verses fluid, understated verses arresting – and the reason why the excitement continues to build around this promising talent.

STEPHANE ROLLAND HAUTE COUTURE, FALL 2012Paris, July 3rd
It goes without saying that Stephane Rolland is one of the kings of haute couture. Time after time, Rolland presents collections that can only be described as fabulous and stunning. Two words that I don’t use often. Stephane Rolland’s collections are popular and celebrities rely on him to produce garments that will out-stage their fellow celebrity friends. Previous wearers of his designs include Lady Gaga who is  known for her outrageous and stunning clothes, Cheryl Cole, and most recently, Beyonce Knowles, who wore a chartreuse one-sleevegown with a hip-high slit from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection at the BET Awards.
With that in mind, it’s no surprise Stephane Rolland kept with a very similar theme for Fall/Winter 2012. There was the usual long crepe de chine and stain evening dresses all with the heavy draping and long trains, silhouettes that reveal every curve, and plenty of ostrich feather embellishments to add a whole new level of sophistication. The only difference with this offering was the palette. Last season Rolland played with bright reds and absinthe-green. This time, Rolland took note of the season and used autumnal shades and plenty of snowy white. Metallic gold also took a back-seat this season after being incorporated onto almost every garment last season.
Stephane Rolland may have took repetition to a whole new level, but I’m not fussed. The collection will be popular, perhaps not so much as last season, but I won’t be surprised if I see A-list celebrities lavished in Rolland’s elegant and sophisticated designs.

"This tote is perfect for work meetings- I got it in Paris. The sales person in Givenchy store on Saint Honoré was the most adorable person ever. When he was handing the shopping bag to me he said ‘take good care of her’! I died!" - Maryam Keyhani.

"I got the fur coat in Le Marché aux Puces. I have never bargained so aggressively for a piece in my life - I’m usually really good with deals at flea markets, this was a tough one. And yes I love Céline, especially because I wear so many bold neck pieces, Céline pieces never clash with anything. Shoes are Fendi, I got them in Milan a couple of years ago - I’ve never worn them actually. It was one of those last minute impulse purchases…you know the ones after a lunch + wine!" - Maryam Keyhani.
