Monique Lhuillier - - Fall 2005
While in Paris, I was inspired by a book on my sister’s coffee table about the Jewels of the Maharaja. Instantly I knew the overall feel that I wanted to portray and the colors I was going to create. It was a return to opulence. I researched embroidery techniques and exotic fabrics and was drawn to the ladylike chic silhouettes of the 60’s. The simplicity of that period and the extravagance of the Maharaja somehow came together to create something modern and alive.
I hope that you enjoy the collection as much as I enjoyed putting it together. ……Monique
