STYLE NOTES: Soucha//Tunisia + Egypt [Day 1, Africa Fashion Week 2010]

Day 1 wouldn't have been complete with a bit of drama and Soucha was there to serve it up with a nearly all-black collection filled with theatrical embellishments fit for a gothic bride. Veils tussled for the spotlight with rosette appliques, lace, sheer panels and a definite emerging trend at Africa Fashion Week - sequins in all the right places. One or two pieces were pure theater with no clear-cut way to translate them into the "real world" but that didn't make Soucha's rendering of the dark side any less fascinating.
