Washington Roberts  introduced  his Autumn/Winter 2012 collection  at dark yet romantic structure among Manhattan’s fashion district, the Bryant Park Hotel a few days ago . A native of Lagos, Nigeria, Roberts’ family history in fashion has played an integral part in his development as a designer. The romantic yet dark setting of the hotel plays to the raw textures and metallics of this upcoming collection. Imagine Michael Jackson circa the 1980’s plated leathers, lustrous twills, intense hardware, studded accessories, and color blocking. All unique characteristics that Roberts hopes to portray through his use of metallic brocades, plush leathers, raw silk tweeds, and silk metallics. Through use of dimensional layering, angled tailoring, and mix mashing of fabric, this collection portrays the same level of edge and sophistication reminiscent of the King of Pop. The Washington Roberts collection is designed for the refined woman, who appreciates an easy transition from day to night.

  1. I see the subtle references to the King of Pop. I love how subtle they are too
