(By Vogue Talents supplement/ September issue 2011)

“Art is always a source of inspiration for me. For my F/W 2011-12 collection I was moved by the work of Sonia Delaunay. Her circular shapes inspired me to create a collection with spheres and geometrical forms. On the other hand, the abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock made me want to explore a vast selection of colours that I used in some of my dresses as if  they were canvases. I think my Latin spirit and my optimism have never let me stop fighting. I’m from Venezuela, a matriarchal society where women are fighters and very determined when they want to reach a goal”.

Fashionable Life: Brit Business Attire

Just because London fashion designers have never had a power lunch on Capitol Hill doesn’t mean they can’t dress you for one.

You may only hear about the most eccentric designers in London, but there are nonetheless a vast number who create flattering clothing for the modern woman that would work well even in Washington. If you walk past the massive catwalk tent and venture inside Somerset House, the historic arts building on the Thames that is the home of Fashion Week, you’ll find many incredible but little-known designers exhibiting in the massive London Fashion Week Exhibition.

Peridot London is one such brand. Creative Director Rachel Wilson is the granddaughter of Ernest Asser of the famed Turnbull & Asser on Saville Row, and she has developed a line that is quite simply “elegant and easy to wear,” her sales representative said. The key elements of the brand are fit and fabric, as the designs are perfectly tailored and made in all English fabrics, including some sumptuous leathers and a vibrant chartreuse silk.

Around the corner, you’re drawn in by a structured but minimalist white leather dress by Liz Black, named by Vogue Italia “a designer to watch out for.” After studying with designers like Emilio de la Morena and Diane von Furstenberg, Black launched her own line in 2010. For spring, she has feminine silhouettes in a minimalist, almost futuristic, style.
