Roya Hessam - A/W '11 AFW

The Netherlands continues to support and promote emerging fashion designers and Roya Hessam is a perfect example with her debut collection, Te Mana O Te Moana (translating to: Spirit of The Ocean) being shown at this years Amsterdam Fashion Week.

Hessam graduated from Amsterdam's Fashion Institute in 2010 and has already produced an exquisite collection.

Prominently inspired by the Ocean and Polynesian art & culture, Hessam used a cool colour palette of blue, green and beige hues, alluding to the sea.  She also embellished each models face with Polynesian inspired tatoo art.

The inspiration Hessam took from the tribal tattoos can also be seen on the garments throughout the collection, particularly through the use of embroidery.

I think we can expect great things from Roya Hessam in the future.
