Winning a legion of fans during her stint on Season 5 of Bravo TV’s Project Runway, African fashion designer Korto Momolu certainly is not one to shy away from jewel-toned brights, prints and feminine silhouettes, along with her cultural accents all contributing to a look of effortless elegance. What I especially love about Korto Momolu’s designs are the fluid, sensual dreamy structures of her maxi dresses and her use of vibrant colour palettes inspired by her Liberian heritage.
This collection was slightly more subdued using winter staples of black, gray and cream. But I am appeased with the appearance of the fuchsia and orange that contrast beautifully with the black, providing the perfect pick-me-up for the long winter days and nights ahead.
Look-out for her Spring/Summer 2011 previews, a fresh summery collection in shades of yellows, blues and taupe.
