Native New Yorker and fashion designer, CheayRochelle, takes industry influencers down a virtual journey along a Victorian road where New York meets Britain with the launch of her “Victorian Nobility,” Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Captured by the feminine structure of sexy-vintage silhouettes, clean cuts and romance, each garment is designed with soft satins and tapestry materials kismet with intricate prints.
On the heels of her widely well received pre-launched collection, Elizabethan System Fall/Winter 2012, CheayRochelle returns with fresh creative ideas set to amaze fashion enthusiasts alike. “Victorian Nobility” captures the royal nostalgia of the 1890-1930’s era complete with seamless vintage tapestries. CheayRochelle is already on its way to becoming a mainstay in the fashion industry scoring features in elite fashion publications such as Vogue, Elle, and Zink. Led by the artistic innovation of a Caribbean-American fashion designer, “Victorian Nobility” channels tapestry prints of royalty similar to its predecessor, all while conveying a new, unique story of its own; offering a solstice of balanced tones in rich bronze, gold and nude.
“I wanted to create something that was avant-garde, and stood out from what’s already out there,” says Cheay Rochelle. “Think royalty meets modern-day fashion, but with a twist.”
