RSN: What do you think are the hottest fashion trends for Fall and Winter 2010/2011?
ATA: Nowadays everything is hot and everything is yesterday news. But I am glad that 70′s mix & match and 90′s [minimalism] making the way back in the same season. I love the sleek well cut jacket and the well pressed pant; boot-cut or wide leg.
RSN: What are the NEW essential wardrobe pieces all women should have in their fall/winter wardrobe and why?
ATA: A boot-cut pant or a wide leg high-waist pant and a maxi skirt or dress. They bring you a newer silhouette: long, lean and sleek.
RSN: What are the best new accessories for the upcoming season and why?
ATA: It’s not a new thing, but the waist belt will add a finishing touch to your look. Especially the double belt in the ATA collection.
