For her sophomore collection, Azeeza Desai Khanof Atelier AZZA has juxtaposed feminine pure silk silhouettes against potent embellishments. This combined with statement color creates a balanced aesthetic that is both wearable and differentiated. Azeeza tells us, she's come to define her overall aesthetic as "modern opulence" and the latest lookbook and story it tells reflects just this.
As an emerging label still in its' infancy, this collection will be the first time she's opening the doors for buyer conversations and retail placement. She tells us, "Currently, I have a strong clientele base that has come very organically via word of mouth or hearing of AZZA in the press."
