From Meiling’s real life Press Release:
MEILING’s Grand Riviere Collection
At Caribbean Fashion Week 2011, Meiling revealed a capsule collection called “Grand Riviere”. Inspired by the idyllic village in the Northern range of Trinidad, the all-white collection is a study in serenity and romance, not unlike the famed Jean Michael Cazabon paintings.
In her inimitable style, Meiling captures the spirit of gentler days gone by with designs that embody the narratives in the Cazabon paintings of the 1800s. Fabrics of light airy cotton voiles recreate the soft breezes wafting across the beaches; mother of pearl button details and signature hand work will be reminiscent of the lush nature of Grand Riviere. As always, the designs will include a subtle sensual vibrancy and unpredictable edgy undertones akin to the ebb and flow of the tides.
Meiling “Grand Riviere” will beckon you to indulge yourself in calm tranquility while ruffling and stimulating your aesthetic sensibility with deceptively effortless designs.
More real life pictures of her “Grand Riviere” collection will be shown in the July issue of the Best of SL Magazine that will be published on July 1!
