Elene Cassis Fall 2011 Review
Elene Cassis may have been channeling the ghost of Coco Chanel when she presented her Fall/winter 2011 collection at Lincoln Center. Cassis showcased a line of monochromatic shift dresses seemingly right for a tea party.
The first half included a selection of black and white color blocking pieces while in the second portion she cleverly infused other textures and colors that demonstrated her range for constructing timeless pieces. Her choices of richly textured fabrics including wine silks, dark tan boucle wools, and splattering of colorful print on brushed steel grey, were perfectly complemented by the neck warmer and hats. This collection was modern while remaining true to the lady- like quality expected of Elene Cassis.
Elene Cassis took the characteristics she cultivated as a competitive gymnast for over a decade and applied them to her commitment to fashion design. She launched her line in 2009, shortly after graduating from Parson’s school of Design. Since then, she has made an impression on her intended client who exudes strength and confidence, while managing to preserve her femininity.
