Teresa Helbing SS12

Bienvenus toujours a l’Hotel Martinez…This was the start point of the inspiration for this beautiful collection of feminine and chic dresses of Barcelona based Teresa Helbig.We know Teresa loves the woman’s body. We know that she want us to be beautiful. And this time, she want ALL of us to be beautiful: daughter and mother. The versatility of the dresses in this collection confirms her as the perfect option to dress up for the party. This versatility has to do with the inspiration: “I enjoyed imagining the people walking at Le Croissette (the legendary road of Cannes), at different times of the day, maybe with a long dress in the afternoon, and always select and cosmopolitan.”Another surprise this time is the change of the colour palette. Leaving the nudes and neutral colours, Helbig has ventured out using new colours, like the morganite pink and soft yellow. Among other new materials one could find, the pineapple textile and lurex. Silks and chiffon were the options for the night.

So what is the next step for Teresa Helbig? “We have now finished the new atelier” (Helbig creates all the garments in this workshop, with her own team of seamstress and artisans in Barcelona) and we are looking forward to opening a new showroom. Doing this, we are planning to expand the brand and make it more international and more European” she says laughing “You know what I would love to do?” she adds “to make all the dresses for a ballet piece”. A dream that suits perfectly to this creator of fantasies.

Her showroom is open by appointment, so if you are looking for the perfect wedding dress or you want to do something that just looks great, check out her website http://teresahelbig.com/
