Monique Lhuillier and Her Feminine Fashion
New York Fashion Week is the hottest time in town....twice a year American and international designers show off their collections and we can enjoy their shows, meet new fashion designs and follow the latest trends.
It's a great pleasure for us to write about Monique Lhuillier - Filipino Fashion Designer based in Los Angeles. Her dresses are often seen on the red carpet and in magazines. She made her name designing beautiful weddings, her wedding dresses are seen on some fabulous stars from time to time.
At the age of 15, when being an outstanding student at Lausanne, Switzerland , Monique already dreamt of becoming a successful fashion designer.....and her dreams came true!!! She was sent to Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising by her parents, where she met her future husband Tom. They founded the company in 1996 and were extremely welcomed by many editors, social people and fashionable brides. At the same time she launched her first bridal collection.
Chic Team was impressed by her Fall 2011 Collection: beautiful cocktail dresses, red carpet ball gowns, print pants, feathered skirts...A Big Part of her last collection is in black because Monique believes that women feel beautiful in black. She used the absence of color to play with texture, added lots of interesting elements: feathers, ribbons, lace.
"Fall is all about sensuality." Monique Lhuillier
