Malan Breton Fashion Show
February 2010 Fashion Week
February 17, 2010

Written by Wendy R. Williams and Photographed by Mary Blanco


For Fall 2010, Malan Breton took us on a magical trip to India in the time of the British Protectorate. The show was fueled by the spirit of Bollywood with appearances by one of Malan's muse's Zuleka Emerson Dove-Hatch and the SA Dance Company. The audience was also treated to American Idols Anoop Desia's premiere of his new single, "My Name" and the appearance of The Real Housewives of New York City's Countess LuAnn de Lesseps. It wasn't just fashion, it was theater.

Breton has stated that his inspiration was the Indian saree. He interpreted his vision with scrumptious silks and beautifully draped cashmeres. Breton is not afraid of color; he utilized a palette of Venetian red, Pyrite, Saffron, and his signature Breton Blue. There were peacocks walking the runway with brilliant poppycock colors for both women and men.

Here is a quote from the press release for the show: "This seasons collection was dedicated to the organization Care and Share India ( and the tremendous work they do for the children of India. A special gown from the collection will be auctioned to benefit Care & Share India, stay tuned for more details."

The show was presented by Style 360, Toni and Guy, and Sephora.
