Fashion Ledge - Afshin Feiz
Afshin Feiz Spring 2007

Designer Afshin Feiz showed his Spring ‘07 collection of elegant evening wear and separates, while the Brand New Heavies played jazzy tunes. Titled " A Fairy Tale," Feiz's collection follows the tale of a English gentleman who is locked into spell for what seems like a matter of seconds, but turns out of to be 10 years. Fabrication ranged from plaids, washed denims, silk charmeuse, silk habotai, and metallic linens. Dreamy colors of subdued blues, browns, pinks, ecru and green were the cornerstone of this collection.

Feiz focuses on cut and construction, mentioning that he rarely cuts dresses on bias-only when it is an utmost necessity, and that by focusing on precise cuts and design, his pieces adorn the female figure. While many designers showed collections emphasizing volumes and large proportions, Feiz chose another route. Feiz insists on not following trends, but uses his inspiration to design pieces that he believes women will want to wear, that in a sense are timeless. His pieces offer women options in that they are transitional and can be worn from one season into the next.
