Leading Czech fashion designer Helena Mertlová presents her new limited collection Ready to Wear Fall 2012 / Winter 2013. The whole collection named „Femme Fatale“ is full of luxury and timelessness, gentleness and romantic pomp. The main fabrics include silk, silk taffeta, satin and chiffon, and the colour palette is dominated by powder tones enhanced with black and white. Moreover, the collection is innovated by the combination of gold and black in the spirit of Art Deco. „In this limited collection, you will find an iconic ribbon dress which underlines your uniqueness whenever you wear it. Gown in a silk dress and become the finest and most charming creature. Choose black and be the star of every big event.“ This collection also introduces luxury jackets made of top quality silk. Helena Mertlová will soon introduce her limited collections RTW in Los Angeles under the brand Helen Mertl.
