Hermione de Paula's S/S ‘09 ‘I Heart Elizabeth Berkley'

Hermione de Paula is the name of a new exciting fashion label launched by a talented St. Martins fashion print graduate with the same name.

I love her ‘I Heart Elizabeth Berkley’ S/S ‘09 collection, which is heavily influenced by the stripping starlets of movie blockbusters like: "Showgirls," "Girls, Girls Girls" and "Striptease" with Demi Moore. With references of strippers and calendar girls, this collection is needless to say very sexy, but even more so classy and feminine, with wonderful shapes and silhouettes to die for.

Hermione De Paula herself also explored the sleaze of the stripping universe as she worked as a cocktail waitress in a strip joint called the Spearmint Rhino prior to launching her fashion career. Now that is dedication to research!

I am glad the young designer faced her destiny and dived back into fashion—what more can you wish for someone who was born of a mother wearing Chanel shades!
