A few months ago I stumbled upon this image of a modern chess set by Karim Rashid while reading a blog-site I frequent. I spent what felt like hours searching for a site to purchase this fabulously chic set---I just had to have it as the focal point of our black & white living room... My Husband and I both being strategic lovers of a great chess game... one of our most favorite pastimes... But of course as I begin clicking away for one thing online.. I become easily distracted and begin yet another dire mission.
I never did find a site where the set was still in stock, Yet the forms and design of this work of art stayed with me for days and carefully birthed inspiration for my next Collection.
This collection is an aggregate of black & white color blocking with use of brocade, jacquard, leather and damask textures and prints--structured peplum and illusion cocktail dresses I simply call "Chess Club Collection".
The reveal will be 12.22.12 @ the very first Fashion Nights Event at Privado---20 N. 2nd St Downtown Harrisburg, PA 17101---a collaborative steer with Fashion Consultant & Wardrobe Stylist Tia Aigne, owner of FashnFREAK,Inc.
