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 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!

Seychelles Dresses Westport  will be hosting a trunk show featuring the 2009 Fall/Winter Collection of  hot new designer Zahra Saeed on Thursday, September 17, 2009, 12 noon – 7pm. Hors d’oeuvres and  cocktails will be served and there will be  informal modeling. 

 Zahra  Saeed is  a Philadelphia based designer who  debuted  her first collection this Spring  in both the US and Europe to much acclaim.  

 Seychelles is excited to share  Zahra’s Fall/Winter 2009 Collection with our customers. We love that she has fabulous  gowns, beautifully tailored sheaths and fun flirty skirts . Of course we adore her LBD but most of all we love her use of color! Check out the  orange tunic dress above. Its made of  hand woven “jamawar” fabric ( hand woven silk). Every woman should introduce  a little color into her Fall wardrobe and I think that this dress makes our list!

Continuing in our series of the perfect little black dress. Check out our new arrival above.  The formula still works. Wear it with opaque tights and stilettos for a modern day look and transition into an evening look by changing shoes and adding a statement accessory.  How about a  pair of red stilettos and a red over sized clutch  bag? 

We also received another very sexy black dress from Nicole Miller. Can you identify the actress wearing it in the photo below?

Nicole Miller New Arrival

Nicole Miller New Arrival

Every woman needs to have  a new  little black dress to take her  through the season. Fall 2009’s version of the little black dress comes with a little edge: an asymmetrical cut, an exposed zipper, bare shoulders and as New  York Magazine says, it marries the tilt and the curve. Check  out Nicole Miller’s version above. 

What  should you wear with the  LBD (Little Black  Dress)?

  •  opaque tights and t-strap heels (see above)
  •  fishnets and knee high boots
  • bare legs and sexy stilettos 
  • a long strand of pearls
  • sparkly earrings
  • Chanel Passion red lipstick

Come into Seychelles and check out our  selection of the LBD. Nicole  Miller’s Black Techno Cotton Dress is now  available in our stores for $44o.
