Kareen Borgella Spring 2011


Kareen Borgella debuted her Egyptian-Inspired Spring 2011 collection on December 2nd. The colors, elegance and texture of the costumes in the film Cleopatra caught her attention. She adapted this aesthetic into her collection for the modern girl in today’s world. Borgella’s colorful collection consists of silk charmuese, silk taffeta, iridescent silk chiffon, Dutch and poly satin as well as textured georgette.

Purple has always been Kareen’s favorite hue which she believes is a power color for royalty and elegance, emboldened further by the use of gold accents. Kareen also mixed in burnt yellow and orange hues. Her pieces are beautifully crafted, well draped silhouettes of art in motion.
