Gold by Michael H

The collection

Michael H Gold’s autumn 09 collection is inspired by screen siren glamour mixed with modern tailoring. The Deco Dream story highlights the use of opulent fabrics, such as silk and velvet, mixed with graphic monochrome prints. Tiered dresses offer an alternative to shift styles, while extra detailing such as placement buttons on jacket collars modernise the look. The Nostalgic Affair collection focuses on softer hues such as dusty pinks and charcoal. Dresses are made from rich satins and organzas, while taffeta pink with flock placements add drama to simple cut shift dresses. The Romantic Escape story focuses on colours such as sand, geranium and black, paying homage to style icons such as Jackie Onassis and Bianca Jagger. Feminine fabrics including lace and velvet are also significant for autumn.

Brand Comment

Margaret Murphy, business development manager

 “Buyers are going for colour, with softer silhouettes and less structure. Buyers want a younger look, with the fit and quality suitable for an older customer. The bandage dress has been very popular, which has a stretch, net lining that fits with the body, and the younger style bolero jackets. Fabrics are also younger; we’ve used a lot of taffeta, along with soft silk fabrics. Buyers want the younger shape but still the longer length, and items that will sit on their own. We’ve used a lot of twilight purple and gold, and retro floral prints have attracted a younger minded customer.”
