A Moi Spring 2016: Designer to Watch

a moi S1601A new discovery for us here at FashionWindows, Alejandra Alonso Rojas designing under the labor A Moi turned out to be a delightful first show that kicked off fashion week for us.

Our first show of the day and our first show for fashion week which officially starts tomorrow, Alejandra, who hails from Spain presnted a lighthearted collection that uplifts one’s inventive spirit which happens to be the message of spring.

Inspired by planet Mercury and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince.” In her vision, Alejandra saw The Little Prince take an intergalactic journey. Connecting it with Mercury’s dynamic movement, the Spanish designer created a kaleidoscopic palette of blues, yellows and pinks balanced with black, nude and pure white.

And with Mercury in retrograde, which happens to be where the collection derived its title (Retrograde), Rojas also experimented with layered transparent fabrics and degradation.

Rojas then blended classic touches with modern elements and unexpected details to create one of a kind garments.
