Seychelles Westport hosts trunk show for Signette by Aysha Saeed

October 25, 2009

Designer Aysha Saeed



It was a rainy October afternoon in Westport last week Thursday but we still had fun viewing the Signette Collection by Aysha Saeed.

Shoppers got the rare opportunity to meet the designer in person!

This is a hot collection. Conservative with a twist!

We are looking forward to her December trunk show in our New Haven Store.


Seychelles’ Fall Calendar of Events

September 26, 2009
Seychelles has a great list of events planned for the Fall/Holiday Season. We hope  that you can join us.

On October 1, 2009, 6pm-8pm, Seychelles New Haven will host a book reading by world reknown Spa Expert and  author Mary Muryn.



Mary Muryn, author, will be reading from her book Spa Magic and sharing recipes from famous spas from around the  world  like  The Four Seasons  and the Ritz Carlton. Mary will  also show you how to make your own aromatherapy concoction for your personal at home spa.

As usual, we’re having our signature live mannequins in the window, offering a 15% off discount to all customers, and serving refreshments.


On Thursday, October 15th  12noon-3pm  Seychelles Westport will host a trunk show for Signette by Aysha Saeed. 


 Aysha is a New York City designer, who embodies femininity, elegance and exotic beauty, all which are reflected in her collections. Aysha will preview her Fall 2009 collection to Seychelles customers. This new collection embraces femininity with lace and ruffle detailing, corsetry, and feminine silhouettes. Aysha’s description of her new collection: ” Couture elements are certainly present in my fall collection, and styling is fit for a woman who is strong yet likes to flirt with color — giving her a modern day edge.” Her attention to detail is amazing and can be likened to designers such as Dolce & Gabbana and John Galliano whom she worked with in Milan and Paris.



Seychelles will host two book readings by famous author Wendy Walker. The First will be on Wednesday, November 4th – 1pm in Westport and the second on Thursday, November 5th at 6pm in New Haven.

Wendy Walker will be reading from her  new novel Social Lives. In this novel she reveals  how the world of  money and privilege affects  the women who inhabit it, bringing to light the family dynamics it corrupts, the glittering cages  it creates, and most poignantly, the lengths  some will go to  keep  wealth in their  grasp. This gripping tale of domestic intrigue and social aspirations in the super-wealthy suburbs of Connecticut will scandalize and enthrall you.


Wendy Walker is a former commercial litigator who has been a stay-at-home mom for the past eleven years. She began writing several years ago and her first novel, Four Wives, was released in February, 2008, Her second novel Social Lives was released September 2009. Wendy recently edited Chicken Soup for the Soul: Power Moms.

Gwendolyn Gleason is a pioneer in this area of  Eco-chic Couture, having launched the concept and first designs in the Fall of 2007. Signature details as seen in the best ateliers take this Eco-”green”concept to another level of sophistication.

Seychelles Westport kicks off Trunk Show Series

September 19, 2009





Seychelles Westport kicked off our emerging new designer series with a trunk show for  Zahra Saeed.

Customers previewed the Fall/Holiday Collection while sipping wine and nibbling on strawberries. Actually, for the more health conscious among us we provided Lemon Ginger Echinacea Juice – so delicious.

Karen and Jasmim  (our in store models) modeled a few dresses from Zahra’s collection.  It was a great way to spend an afternoon.

A big thank you to our friends at Taylor’s Floral Arts 240 Post Rd E
Westport, CT  (203) 227-9534  for providing the flowers for the event. Thank you also to Alice, our rep from Zahra Saeed, who did a great job of presenting the collection.  Our models Karen and Jasmim created quite a flurry of activity in Westport on a Thursday afternoon : ) Thank you.

We’ll be posting our calendar of  events soon. So,  get ready for more gorgeous clothes, more gorgeous models and more fun. We hope to see you there!
