Geta Marin Hair Stylist presented ”Yarn” Hair Style Collection at Romanian Fashion Philosophy in collaboration with Catch Michelle Fall Winter 2016 and the main sponsor of the show was L’Oreal Paris. Catch Michelle brand was founded in 2013 in London by Mihaela Teleaga Designer that will continue to represent the highest cultural values of fashion and promote a unique style in the construction and design of the leaders, showing a decidedly provocative creativity, as demonstrated with her last Spring Summer 2016 on the catwalks of Paris, during Paris Fashion Week.
Mihaela Teleaga’s curious mind is reflected in her collections women, which are influenced by sur- realism movements. Her dreams where Sigmund Freud were therapy for all her negative feelings, are a continuous source of inspiration for his avantgarde creations. Like Sigmund Freud said: ‘’I go for my instinct, reality and morality.’’
Hysteria it s a strong point for Catch Michelle’s concept inspired from real illness human cases and the ego’s goal is to satisfy the fashion and art’s victims. The art of sexual pleasure is a strong theme for Catch Michelle, inspired by paintings that represent a dream with a symbolic meaning based on real life. Catch Michelle transforms the dreams into real facts through the transposition of the op- eras on the fabric prints.
The collection has a strong pastels colours palette for Fall Winter 2016/2017, combin- ing them with innovative patterns but keeping a quite line in mood to understand the concept. Catch Michelle connects all the world inspired by religions and universal symbols seen in the designer’s dreams. Mihaela Teleaga Designer has a story to say and to show to this world, her night dreams that complete her day dreams.
Sigmund Freud has the most important role on her dreams, communicates with her strongest de- sires and bring them to reality for following them. The paintings and the ideas are very strong with a great theme behind. The fabrics used for the Fall Winter 2016/2017 Collection are natural fibres as wool, cotton, silk, leather but also combined with other fine fabrics.
All the gold accessories are personalized with the official logo Catch Michelle
