When Shaneen Huxham introduced her first Collection of unique Gloves for Fall 1991, their popularity met her most optimistic expectations. With 10 years of experience in couture clothing, and having been a Fashion Editor in foreign markets, she has developed an almost instinctive ability to predict what her customers will love to wear from season to season.
"Well designed, quality accessories have always been important as far as enhancing a garment or to help create a specific look in fashion", notes the Designer. "However, besides the beautiful range of colours, relatively little attention is paid to the detailing to achieve a 'Couture' look in a glove. That was her motivation then and now her line of gloves fills that gap but her distinctive touch was soon extended to hats, handbags and hair accessories.
Embellished details include intricately beaded braids, handwoven silk ribbon rosettes, embroideries and unusual finds which achieve a whimsical touch. The striking juxtaposition of detailed features and unusual silhouettes create a classical yet forward look in Shaneen Huxham's Gloves.
The glove collection includes Day, Evening and Bridal styles as well as a Men's collection. Sewn hat styles and cosmetic bags are often in the same fabric as handbags. There are also hand blocked hats for both seasons.
Shaneen's collections are sold at specialty boutiques and department stores throughout the USA, the UK and extensively in Japan.
