Frédérique Marlène Kragbé collection @ Cannes Shopping Week

So by luck of meeting a very lovely lady called Beatrice at an event one evening, I was given a VIP invite to view the Spring/Summer 2011 couture collection of a local Cote D'Azur designer called Frédérique Marlène Kragbé.
This designer aspires to two aspects very close to my own heart: vintage styling and strong environmental awareness. How could I not like her?!
Her couture collection entitled “Ballet de L’Autre Côté du Miroir” (Ballet the other side of the mirror) is a beautiful collection of vintage inspired pieces in soft ice cream colours for daywear with stronger colours for eveningwear. All of her pieces are created from recycled fabrics or garments using silks, organza and laces from vintage eras in the past. And all of her creations are handmade in France to reduce the carbon impact on the environment. Below are a few of her creations....
