Vanessa Gounden, designer of label Vanessa G launches her ss12 collection this coming thursday through a unique installation and form of presentation. Vanessa draws her inspiration from two different mediums and whereby combining the two she creates a unique fashion experience.
Each piece from her collection is a wearable emulation of art that features original artwork and photography. Vanessa's autumn/winter collection displays sophisticated and elegant pieces. There are several references to both flowers and scenery through the use of an eclectic palette.
The two images above are taken from her AW11 collection to give an idea of her amazing work, more images of the SS12 collection will be released after the launch.
The SS12 collection is a compilation of 3 capsule collections: Renewal, Framed Vintage and Ethic Dazzle. Each exhibit the signatures of Vanessa G. The ss12 collection also uses model Amber Le Bon as the face of the label. After featuring in the SS12 editorial shot in Richmond Park, Amber says "I have really enjoyed working with vanessa on her ss12 photoshoot. Her use of prints and tailoring are very unique and I am a big fan of her work, especially the way she fuses art with fashion"
