Arthur Mendonša Spring and Fall 2013 Fashion
Arthur Mendonša creates clothes known for their vibrant, feminine energy and elegant, understated style. Luxurious fabrics, striking silhouettes and expert tailoring combine to deliver bold, polished and sexy clothes.
Arthur has been sketching designs since he was 5 years old.
"Even in math class, it was math in the front of the book, sketches in the back," he said.
Internationally, he has shown his collections in New York, Sao Paulo, London, Montreal and Los Angeles.
With its collections featured in showrooms in Toronto and New York, the Mendonca brand developed a steadfast celebrity following.
The inspiration for his wide variety and ever-changing seasonal design styles can come from anywhere. Ideas come and go while Arthur is watching a movie, flipping through a magazine or reading a novel.
Arthur's inspiration for spring came from Japanese silks and kimonos, which is evident throughout his collection.
There will be a lot of color on the runways across the world this spring. Bright colors and strong colors are predominant themes for the spring collection.
Oxidized coppers, metals, and fire inspire Arthur's fall 2013 collection. Leather, bright colors and mixed textures remain strong for this upcoming season.
For fall, it's all about the statement coat, though it could be in a silhouette or a color.
