PARIS, May 1, 2010 / FW/ — Since Veronique Leroy burst into the Paris fashion scene in 1991, her feminine style, use of subtle colors and constant search of new combinations of forms and materials have put her on top of her game.

Veronique Leroy also approached fashion design like a sculptor, wherein clothes are formed and shaped to accentuate the body. The new fall / winter collection confirms once again this theorem.

With the use of padding and masterful cutting and construction, Veronique Leroy created sculpted pieces that have very distinctive shapes. To soften the effect and add femininity, Leroy used fringe and soft pleats, opting for delicate, slightly muffled, fall colors: beige, chestnut, orange and gray resulting to a peculiar melancholy beauty.

Must have accessory are the scarves made of wool and fur. Stand out include the evening dresses made of thick lace.
