Pamella Roland—and her designs—are known for unique sophistication and elegance. The designer once again proved that she is the queen of glamour with her latest presentation at New York Fashion Week. For her Ready-to-Wear Spring 2018 line, she created amazing dresses that are the stuff of every modern princess’s dreams.
Pamella’s inspiration for the spring line was luxurious Monaco, the city that screams and breathes glamor. She always finds the perfect ways to transcribe royal vibes into her unique designs. Roland thought of large casinos, bright streets and powerful women that know how to wear an amazing gown. The first muse she thought of was Grace Kelly and her timeless beauty and style.
“Everything is just beautiful there,” Roland explained backstage. “The cars, the buildings, the people—my customer wants beautiful, over-the-top gowns, and that’s the place where you’re going to see them.”
In the Spring 2018 collection, you will see rich fabrics, combined with lavish embroideries and embellishments. The colors that predominate are mostly the ones that radiate elegance and are often seen on red carpets. You will notice a contrast of colors, with either very dark or very light shades used for the designs. When it comes to the darker hues, the designer went with the most elegant ones—black and dark blue. A big refreshment is the brighter shades, such as white, baby pink, nude, and lavender.
The two most vibrant colors in the line are fuchsia and cobalt. A big standout piece is the astonishing fuschia gown that features a daring high side slit. Another outstanding design that is completely jaw-dropping is a three-toned ombre long dress. It is embellished from head to toes with sequins and it includes a plunging deep neckline. The biggest fairy tale moment of the collection is presented with an extravagant voluminous blue dress.
‘Our customer wants ball gowns, especially customers from overseas,” Pamella commented. “They’re asking for opulence. This collection is about what the customer wants. There’s been an upswing on high-end and people wanting more.”
Aside from the floor-length designs, Pamella made sure to include several cocktail dresses. And since there is nothing ordinary about her work, the designer went ahead and used heavily embellished fabrics that are a real feast for the eyes.
Another big thing that is important for Roland is that her designs should be comfortable to wear. According to her, the gowns might not look very comfortable, but they definitely are. She and her team use the best fabrics to make sure that the customers feel very pleasant while wearing the designs.
