Malan Breton certainly knows how to "put on a show" with music, dancers, celebrities, umbrellas and even dogs. For Style 360 Fashion Week, Malan with the support of Rado Switzerland simply "outdid" even himself.

Brittany Franklin and Chase Finla

The Chelsea Symphony was back, as were dancers Brittany Franklin and Chase Finla, who performed wearing outfits from the collection. The dancer's garments performed beautifully as they moved gracefully across the stage.

According to the press release, Malan's vision for Spring of 2011 is "American sportswear meets Paris Couture." Also, according to the press release, the collection is "inspired by the technicolor movies of yesteryear. The color palette is a sensuous palette of soft colors with infusions of daffodil, aqua, deep cyan, silver, blueberry, azure, brick and signature Breton bleu, colors that radiate like the films of old! [The colllectionwas created] in all natural fabrics like chiffon, silk organdy, gazaar, beaded crepe de chines, organza, cotton piques, voiles, and gabardines and Malan Breton's signature silk chinoise."

The women 'a collection is movie star elegant. Joan Crawford would have loved Malan as will all modern day ladies and gentlemen with a flair for drama and a love of romance.

Malan is one of the few fashion week designers to show men's clothing (men ARE about 50% of the population). His men's suits are created from shiny silks with body conscious cuts. Malan's guys will definitely stand out.

The collection was sophisticated and timeless. These are garments that can be worn daily that will give the wearer the joy of performing in his or her "Movie in my mind."
