Timeless inspiration with Fall/Winter collection

Few people need introduction to Dinesh Chandrasena. Sitting down with Dinesh to discuss a venture that has "ready to wear" written on it was exciting and insightful. Dinesh may have gained international repute designing for celebrities such as Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock, but this project, designing high end, high 'street chic', is truly dear to Dinesh's heart.

As the creative and highly motivated designer for the Red Banana brand, Dinesh not only has worked closely with global trends and innovation, but drawn on personal inspirations of world travel and art to create a rich pallete and timeless silhouettes. The Fall/Winter 2013/14 collection from Red Banana was showcased at Pure London, during London Fashion week and also at Zip Zone during Paris Fashion Week.

"The response has been wonderful, and the feedback amazingly candid, and positive" said Dinesh.

The collection of Women's wear and Men's wear are anchored in bespoke quality tailoring and the Fall Florals print designed exclusively for Red Banana was an instant hit. "The T-shirts, dresses and scarves with the print drew much attention from buyers and media" Dinesh confided. The photo shoot for the PR/Press/Promo campaign was shot in London on January 28 with the stars of the shoot being Socialite and model Olivia Inge with Actor/Author and former Stade Francais Rugby player Raphael Poulain.

"The stars of the shoot showcased a wonderfully languid and sophisticated mood, showing the classically inspired collection at its best, as you would see in the images and the video too", Dinesh said. Right now as Dinesh progresses to the Spring/Summer 2014 collection, which shall be photographed soon in London, Dinesh promises more delectable offerings to the Red Banana clients.
