Issa incoporates prints and pops of color

You probably still remember Kate Middleton’s stunning blue dress at the royal engagement. It comes as no surprise to find out that designer Daniella Issa Helayel is the creator behind both this dress and the Issa collection showcased recently at London Fashion Week. The Issa Fall 2011 collection consists of fluid, feminine pieces that are flattering and extremely ready to wear.

To start off, Issa’s choice of fabric is marvelous.  There are the occasional pops of solid orange, blood orange and deep sky blue. The prints, ranging from graphic to floral and feather, are ethnic but updated enough to appeal to a young clientele. It’s a bold, nevertheless subtle, move to pair mixed prints together.

Flared skirts, drapings and cinches flatter the body.

Issa targets the same women as Diane Von Furstenberg, and the resemblance can easily be spotted. However, Issa’s collection easily wins in terms of femininity and wearability. Blouses with tie necks are ultra feminine and my favorites of the collection. Light fabirc skirts give the perfect flare that accentuates the hip. Strategic drapings and cinchings are placed on dresses and jumpsuits, which flatter the torso a great deal.
