Alabama born designer to make debut in London
Dec '09
Born in Alabama, Borris Powell has showed all over the world with his feminine designs epitomising elegance and class. With echoes of Chanel in his last A/W collection, Powell's designs combine great tailoring with sharp lines and vibrant colours. Inspired by watching his mother getting ready for parties as a child, the old fashioned glamour is subtly highlighted in his designs and are worn by strong women who still want to retain their femininity and show their figure.

From tweed grey mini dresses to tartan jodhpurs and floor length sweeping red double breasted coats, Powell's collection hints at 1920's sophistication with a twist of the contemporary city woman. Using traditional fabrics Powell stays true to classic style but adds his own quirky sense of modernity into his designs, teaming the jodhpurs with heels and a crop jacket.

“I always wanted to make women feel beautiful” Powell says, his designs undoubtedly showcase this wish successfully. Borris Powell is definitely one to watch this fashion week as he shows new his A/W 2010 collection at the LGN Events 'A La Mode' Catwalk Show, this February as part of the London Fashion week off-schedule programme. His show will be part of an international showcase at the Charing Cross Hotel on Friday 19 Feb 2010.
