Winnipeg bred Rachel Mara will be presenting at LG Fashion Week for the first time and tells us that her collection was inspired by classic film heroines like Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde and The Thomas Crown Affair and Grace Kelly in Rear Window and To Catch A Thief. “These high styled beauties are mysterious, seductive, alluring and often dangerous…embrac[ing] their self-inflicted predicament with composed abandonment,” she says. “My collection is dressed up, confident and refined to contrast and camouflage the chaos and uncertainty that these heroines and all women confront.”
Rachel Mara presents her Spring ’11 collection and a short film on Wednesday, October 20th at 8 pm. Check back the following morning to see the collection and our reviews.
