Merline Labissiere: "I design for the creative woman working in a professional, business environment. My brand is all about my quest to combine architecture and fashion. This season, my collection tells the story of the road which people in Haiti commute from one location to the next. The combinations of these roads create new, unexplored shapes and spaces. Looking through satellite lens at the road map running across the island of Haiti and combining these lines with contemporary architectural floor plans create the vision of this collection. Each architectural detail and geographic image inspired the new silhouettes and shapes that both accent and contour the female form appropriately for both work and play". @mlabissiere
