Serbian designer Svetlana Horvat showcases her upcoming Spring/Summer 2011 collection for the first time in Washington D.C. at the Carnegie Institution.  The show was produced by Planete Chic,, Naturally couture, ReadytoRise2010, and Mrs. Drina Vlastelic Rajic from TSM Global Consultants.

On the runway a lavish palette of iridescent Caribbean blues and rich silk materials enchanted our eyes. Sumptuous work with lace overlays and encrusted swarovski crystals embellish the designer’s night gowns and cocktail dresses. Svetlana’s creations also included remarkable accessories and head-wears in tulle, organdy and silk organza. Oversized head pieces and all-volume veils topped gorgeous crystal gowns adding elegance and grace to her creations.

In the  second part of her show, Svetlana Horvat presented a leather collection with oriental inspiration in black and creme colors.  Structured angled jackets and leather woven details particularly caught our attention. In an exclusive interview, the designer explained that the leather woven inset on jackets and suits were entirely hand made. The delicate leather vowing patterns are as delicate as the one of  crochet and give a sophisticated allure and feminine accents to the creations.  A real dream straight from the thousand and one nights tales, this spring/summer collection from Svetlana Horvat is a total success.
