2012 Arise Magazine Fashion Week: Paul Hervé Elisabeth



French/Martinique designer Paul Hervé Elisabeth presents dresses, jackets tailored to perfection and pants in varying cuts in rich jewel tones accessorized with bold turbans.

The designer made a print reminiscent of late great Alexander McQueen that doesn’t overpower the designs but accentuates a women’s best features. Like the white knee length dress that opened the show, where the print accentuated the model’s majestic shoulders and cleavage.

Let them take your breath away..!

    I like this collection, but those last two looks were disastrous. You either wear that oversized black top as is (if you are short like I am) or with some skinny jeans or tights. Not with those baggy bermuda shorts.

    But love the colors and his style though.

    This designer strives to be ORIGINAL without going over the top. The white jackets in this collection rock- so very refreshing.. and the print is beautiful but I think he couldve done without those obi belts-they’re too distracting. Well done Paul.
