Showcasing her elegant floaty designs, Hazel Aggrey-Orleans has created a beautiful AW14 collection that highlights the best feature in all women—their inner goddess.
Imagine the hypnotic beat of African drums, the seductive rhythm of salsa and dancing to samba on a balmy night in Rio, and you have the spirit of the EKI AW14 collection. Music has always been a powerful source of inspiration for EKI’s Creative Director, Hazel Aggrey-Orleans and this season she translated her love for Afro-cuban music into an extraordinary collection, aptly named Rhythm.
Featuring the EKI’s signature silks and ethereal chiffons, the Rhythm collection is replete with exquisite garments that seem to move to their own harmonious beat. “I wanted to capture the rawness of the African drum and the melodic elements of samba, in a way that inspired spontaneity, fun and playfulness”, explained the designer.
Using a dazzling array of golds and blues in sensual and sophisticated silhouettes, the designer created modern and elegant pieces that are fun and playful.
