From Finance to Fashion: An evening with fashion designer Aysha Saeed

November 29, 2009
New York City based Fashion Designer Aysha Saeed is returning to Seychelles with her Holiday 2009 Collection. However, this time there will be a twist not only will she present her collection to our Seychelles client, she will also give a talk at Seychelles New Haven on December 3rd at 6pm about her transition from finance to the world of fashion.
 
After working in finance for many years, Aysha left Wall Street and moved to Milan to pursue her interest in fashion design. Aysha will give an informal talk about how she made the decision to leave Wall Street to pursue her true passion for fashion, her experiences in Italy and how she started her own collection. We are super excited to co-sponsored this event with YCouture.
 
A trunk show featuring informal modeling and a reception will follow Aysha’s talk. This a great opportunity for everyone who missed Aysha’s October trunk show at Seychelles Westport to meet Aysha, learn more about her and see her gorgeous collection in Seychelles New Haven.
 
Check out some photos below  of Aysha’s  Fall/Holiday 2009 editorial shoot. The photos shoot  location was at the Seacroft Estate, where Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt lived earlier this year.

Aysha’s collection is  feminine and elegant and most importantly for us at Seychelles the fit is amazing!

 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.

We’ll host Gwendolyn in Seychelles  Westport on November 12,  13, 14th. All of her dresses are made in certified organic fabrics from Europe and the USA. Exclusive laces, beading and embroideries give this collection a European romanticist flair while being fabulously earth friendly. 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 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!
