Inspired by the legendary fashion icon, Mary McFadden.
"Power gives you an aura," says Mary McFadden
Fashion Designer, Mary McFadden is known for her stunning pure, timeless silhouettes. With an artist's touch she created clothing sensitive to color, harmony, and proportion. She brought these pieces to life using exotic details, decorations, and luxurious fabrics. Her designs are elegant and flattering.
McFadden took inspiration from her travel all over the world and history. McFadden developed her famous "Marii" pleating, recalling Fortuny's silk pleated fabrics, which were, in turn, based upon ancient Greek and Egyptian pleating. McFadden's pleated evening gowns were ideal for her wealthy, jet-setting clientéle since they were made of satin-backed polyester, which retained the pleats through hand-washing and travel. McFadden's awareness of modern technology had succeeded in making the pleats permanent.
Set in the sexy North Avenue Collective, the bold and beautiful designs of the iconic American Fashion Designer and Writer prove that couture fashion is alive and well, and ready to be coveted.
