Catch Michelle was one of the special guest designers at Serbia Fashion Week with the new Spring Summer 2017 collection, ‘‘Room No.6” – a womenswear Collection inspired by Jimi Hendrix. The Catch Michelle Brand, based in London, aspires to encourage growth across boards and to show the links between fashion, art and design through new methodologies and creative processes. Mihaela Teleaga (the brand’s designer) remains tied to the London scene and continues to represent the highest cultural values of fashion to promote a unique style. Both with regard to construction and design of her pieces, Teleaga is an industry leader, showing a decidedly provocative creativity, as demonstrated with her Fall Winter 2016/2017 collection at New York Fashion Week.
The palette for the “Room No. 6” collection is full of pastels for Spring & Summer, combining them with innovative patterns. This collection is dedicated to the greatest artist Jimi Hendrix, widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music.” Catch Michelle credits Jimi Hendrix’s world of mystery, symbols and surrealism as having an important role on her dreams, communicating with her strongest desires and bringing them to reality. The paintings and the ideas are applied to natural fibers like organza, cotton and silk while being paired with other fine fabrics and accessories like hats, shoes and scarves.
