The designer I am talkin about today is on the watch-list of becoming a future star! Some say the "New Madame Gres". It is Barbara Casasola! She is a London based Brazilian designer. She studied in Central Saint Martins in London and Istituto Marangoni in Milan, and she was the apprentice of Roberto Cavalli for two years. She then worked in Paris for Lavin and Chloe. 

In Summer 2012, she released her first collection (Fall 2012 RTW) in Sao Paulo with a focus on parred down occasion wear. What caught my attention about her collection is how incredibly simplistic it looks, yet its undeniable dramatic effect. The silhouette and construction of the dress may not be very elaborate, but they sufficiently show women's femininity and elegance.

If we first look at her Fall 2012 RTW collection, there are a few things that is evident: Four major color theme, similar shape of garments, velvet and sheer-type fabric, and sophisticated aurora.

Her Spring 2013 RTW is similar to her fall collection, similar color schemes and silhouette  and even more beautiful dresses. Her looks are perfect for any red carpet or award ceremonies and hopefully her success will grow!
