Emerging British designer Misha Vaidya of By Misha unveiled her Spring/Summer 2013 collection “Wishing Well” in presentation at a whimsical garden tea party. Models’ were transformed into stems as flowing chiffon, satin and brocade in shades of honeysuckle, mint, marmalade and crème brûlée mirrored the delicate petals of flowers. The twelve-piece collection was shown on models spread across four platforms, all placed in front of floor to ceiling windows at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. This provided an opportunity to truly see the design as well as the quality of materials used.
How refreshing to see a designer – a young designer whose finger is on the youthful-pulse of her audience. Misha’s designs weren’t so “adult” as to look like she was trying too hard, nor to “young” that wouldn’t appeal to young ladies from 18-30. These were outfits that were wearable and fun. If you are a young bride, there is one dress in the collection that is called “White Rose” that is simply beautiful. The Cream full-length fitted strapless gown shows off your curves. It has a curved satin top and low scooped back. The sequin waist band, adds just enough sparkle and it’s beautiful layered chiffon detailing adds to it’s chic appeal.
Watching the world with glittering eyes and hopes of turning each star into a constellation. The use of Charmeuse and layer-upon-layer of chiffon, leave you feeling light as air. The “Wishing Well” collection suggests…” Legend has it that hidden deep within a forgotten meadow is a magical well, waiting for the most special of secrets to be discovered. What’s your wish?”
Misha offers romantically sophisticated couture women swear. Wishing Well is the most recent of Misha’s three collections, keeping with her brand’s niche of whimsical, feminine designs complimented by understated grace.
