Thien Le - spring/summer 2002

For Spring 2002, Thien Le puts together a synergistically thematic collection, giving confident women 25 and above a way to bask in their femininity. The collection is light and refreshing, with a black and white double-layered chiffon dress with off-the-shoulder peel-away leading the way. Black and cream culottes reinforce Le’s position that looking good is supposed to be a comfortable thing. Bold colour combinations liven the offerings with Spanish notes, as can be seen in the bias-cut yellow jersey gown with crimson floral appliqué. An implied motion weaves its seductive ways in Thien Le’s garments: the structure seems to unfurl from the top down in a gentle, organic way.

This delicate touch pervades the collection, no doubt an asset when dressing Miss Canada International.
