(( Written By: Staff Writer )) We just love these flirty, feminine pieces from the latest collection by designer Hazel Aggrey-Orleans of Eki Orleans. Hazel found inspiration for the collection, called ‘‘Butterflies’’ during a trip to Mauritius, where she encountered a flutter of beautiful butterflies and was instantly mesmerized. ‘‘It is the soft innocence and gracefulness of these species that I tried to capture in my SS13 collection. We used a lot of white fabrics to showcase the purity, against the vivid orange and fuchsia colours, which for me, beautifully portrays the energy that is brought to us through the wisdom of these delicate creatures. We often forget what changes they have gone through to blossom to that beauty and I wanted to create pieces that were pure and angelic.’’
