The classic combination between black and white is interpreted in original way in the propositions of the fashion designers and presents a new, modern outlook. These tendencies are seen in the new collection spring-summer 2009 of Jana Jekova. The dynamic color palette interprets the colorful range of the rainbow. It passes through candy colors as turquoise blue and cyclamen, sunny orange-gold tonality and reaches dark purple and metallic. The dresses are mainly made of silk, lace and hand-written materials. The designer uses again high class fabrics such as luxurious Italian silk.
