Established in 1985 as a designer of customized gowns, the Edition Georges Chakra line has evolved into so much more. Georges Chakra is now an haute couture house that has dressed A-list celebrities such as Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton and Fergie. George Chakra prides himself on each collection being completely different from the previous collection. Chakra believes: “Everything is in the detail, luxury is in the details” and we couldn’t agree more.
This was the first Edition Georges Chakra show that we’ve attended and this was by far one of the best collections of New York Fashion Week. Chakra has the ability to turn a little black dress into something nothing less than extraordinary; his incredible attention to beading and texture does not go unnoticed in his S/S 2011 collection. This collection featured mini dresses as well as floor length gowns in black, jewel tones, and metallic hues that were sophisticated and feminine.
“Chakra’s designs celebrate the woman’s body, and for the summer 2011 collection, the designer emphasized and sculpted the female form by surrounding it with a set of satin straps – sometimes parallel, other times crisscrossed – transforming his creations into glamorous and extremely contemporary looks.”
