VANESSA G LONDON, the celebrated London-based luxury fashion label founded by South African female business icon, Vanessa Goundon, debuted its latest Fall 2014 Collection ‘Earth, Wind & Fire’, at renowned Michelin-starred restaurant, Rouge Tomate in New York, during the recent New York Fashion Week.
Popular with celebrities such as Yasmin Le Bon, Jade Jagger, Poppy Delevigne, Natalia Vodianova, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, VANESSA G LONDON has grown exponentially since its launch in the UK in 2011, and is now available across four continents, including the UK, USA, Europe, Africa and soon, Russia.
Key retailers, celebrities, socialites and fashion VIPs attended the exclusive invitation-only VANESSA G Fashion Show and Cocktail Reception at the Upper East Side hotspot. Sprawled over 15,000 square feet, the grand, gorgeous two-level Rouge Tomate restaurant, which used to be a Nicole Fahri store, provided the perfect backdrop to offset the majestic garments which form part of the latest Earth, Wind & Fire Collection.
It is in the spirit of balance that VANESSA G celebrates the elements of nature in her latest collection with the theme ‘Earth, Wind & Fire’. In a considered mix of prints, inspired by their symbolic representations, the elemental forces are explored. Grounded by Earth, adrift in the Wind and impassioned by Fire; three bold narratives unfold in the Fall 14 Collection to create a powerful statement.
Brainchild of Vanessa Gounden, one of South Africa’s most successful female entrepreneurs, the VANESSA G LONDON fashion label is synonymous with highly creative prints, beautiful bespoke designs and strong, feminine tailoring.
Taking inspiration from a myriad of elements from nature, and drawing on aspects of Vanessa’s rich and colourful life, the VANESSA G label is as elegant as it is creative. Every piece in the VANESSA G collection is limited and looks like a piece of art, the ultimate statement of luxury that is not only unique, but also creates a distinguished, wearable, character-defining fashion statement. Its international success therefore comes as no surprise and the brand looks forward to an exciting global expansion plan over the next year and beyond.
