The Koi Suwannagate Spring 2009 collection was inspired by the style of the silent film star Louise Brooks. The updated Twenties influence dazzled the audience and was enhanced by healthy doses of Swarovski crystals. Rosettes, sheer fabrics, and floaty shapes cast a spell over showgoers, while cashmere separates kept the line grounded. This fairy tale collection was largely done in delicate pastels, but pops of fuchsia lent an unexpected twist to a vintage butterfly print that seamlessly appeared throughout the show. Everything was so effortless and masterfully executed that fashion emotions of optimism and love seemed to be sparking in the air. The line was literally poetry in motion, and the clothing conjured up images of an ethereal dream. Heavily embellished pieces along with floor length silk gowns were crowd favorites that defined the show that felt more like a work of art.
