Every season, Designer George Chakra takes several risks by presenting amazing collections, totally different from the previous ones. This time Georges Chakra brought elegance and glamour to Fashion Houston 2012 presented by Audi at the Wortham Theater Center – Grand Foyer, with his Spring/Summer 2013 prêt-a-porter collection – EDITION by George Chakra.

For Spring/Summer 2013, Mr.Chakra sent down the runway a beautiful and elegant collection, which consisted of twenty three looks, mostly of cocktail dresses and elegant long gowns in a soft pastel colour palette. Pinks, sky blue, pistachio and off white dominated most of the collections, when it comes to the fabrics, most of the looks were either satin or chiffon, with geometric sequin details and embellishment.

“I design and create in order to expose a woman’s contradictory personality, she seduces with her discreet allure while at the same time through her innate sensuality, show us her ability to rule through silent presence. The woman should be at the same time angelic and feel absolutely seductive”, says Georges Chakra.

Chakra’s brand signature combines elaborate and intricate back details coupled with trendy and daring fabrics. His woman is elegant, glamorous and sophisticated. His fashion shows are always greeted with overwhelming success, which led him to create unique dresses for various royals in the Middle East as well as Hollywood celebrities, like Katy Perry, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Queen Latifah, Mariah Carey, Helen Mirren, Tyra Banks, and many others. The Edition by George Chakra Spring/Summer 2013 Collection can be summed up in three words – feminine, elegant and modern.
