Michelle Ludek- Capetown Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011 (Pictures)

Michelle studied fashion while living abroad in Canada and worked as a senior designer for top Canadian fashion retailer. When she returned to South Africa in 2006 she created her own ready-to-wear label, Michelle Ludek. The label is stocked by many independent fashion retailers including The Space, Mungo & Jemima and several other boutiques across the country.

The Michelle Ludek brand is made for the modern woman; a woman is one who is confident in terms of self-expression and unique in terms of personal style. The aesthetic is inspired by a love of nature: textures, shapes and details create an easy, effortless style.

The collection for Cape Town Fashion Week was inspired by a trip to Mozambique, where the raw heat of the country has been translated into color, prints and a level of comfort. Tailored pieces are paired with Michelle Ludek’s signature draped knit pieces. The silhouettes are longer: maxi dressed in bold floral prints have pleated details. The collection is confident and effortlessly stylish.
