#WMCFW Fall/Winter 2014: Day 5, Madame Moje
The first show on the runway on Day 5 of WMCFW, Madame Moje, had the audience in compete and utter awe. Vancouver-based label Madame Moje showed for the first time at WMCFW and featured knit separates, sleek jackets and figure-hugging dresses.
The duo behind Madame Moje, Malashnee Naidoo the creative director and business partner and husband Hamed Emtiaz, established the Canadian brand upon relocating to Vancouver from Singapore in 2012. Naidoo shares her style icons, which include Jacqueline Onassis and Victoria Beckham, and she finds inspiration in the works of fellow designers like Ellie Saab and Haider Ackerman. This may only be Madame Moje’s third collection but the outfits took our breaths away.
Black has been a staple this season, it is Fall/Winter 2014 after all. But Madame Moje stepped outside of the monochromatics and incorporated lots of colour, including bright reds, emerald, navy and aubergine into the designs. Placing emphasis on female curves, Naidoo created feminine gowns with zipper detailing, cut outs and diagonal lines, creating beautiful silhouettes emphasizing the female form. Closing the show was the show stopper, the Lady in Red, who walked out in a vibrant red mermaid tail gown with peplums and lace. Madame Moje showcases an ultra feminine collection that’s both sexy and sophisticated.
