 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.

Author & Mom Wendy Walker

Author & Mom Wendy Walker

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.
