Arthur Mendonca Spring 2008
Arthur Mendonca’s spring collection draws upon Grecian inspired draping and modern cuts to make for a varied and colourful collection. Day looks are functional, incorporating wider pant legs and for his tops a puff sleeve.
Mendoncas color palette range from purple to soft lemon & lime sorbet colours as well black and white pieces. His use of silk crepe, organza and chiffon to create these looks works well, which was seen by the live models walking about. Moreso Arthur has a good grasp on cutting these fabrics to create soft flowing dresses which works with the Grecian goddess feel.
High profile clients like Paris Hilton, Tyra Banks, Vivica Fox and Nelly Furtado call upon Arthur for red carpet looks which make a statement. The price points range between $250.00 for blouses to $2,500.00 for various evening pieces. Once again we find a designer who can create stunning looks without breaking the bank.
