Maria Grachvogel spring/summer 2011

THE Grachvogel worked at the concept of drape and fold, to create volume away from the body, while, at the same time, emphasising the silhouette.

She showed the below-the-knee shifts, with loose, draped armholes, and a series of dramatic, long dinner-gowns, where the intense colors of her paintings, which were of printed onto a semi-sheer crepe, specially woven in the Far East, and in silk-satin, showed to maximum effect.

Grachvogel offset the striking prints with long-sleeved, blouse gowns and easy shifts with draped back effects, in plain chrome-yellow, smoke-grey, and beige.

A former banker in The City, Grachvogel set up her own brand in 1994. Her high-profile clientele includes Elle Macpherson, Gemma Arterton, Yasmin Le Bon, Marie Helvin, Erin O'Connor, Chloe Delevigne, Josie Taylor, and Noisettes singer, Shingai Shoniwa.
