Fab Exclusive: Check out Manning Cartell's Model Casting for their 2011 RAFW S/S Catwalk Show

2011 RAFW Exclusive Preview: Manning Cartell

Last year Manning Cartell took us on a Spanish spin around the block, and this year it looks like North Africa will be their destination du jour. We cornered the designers midst RAFW madness, and asked them about what else we can expect from their Tuesday morning show. They kindly answered our Fab five fast RAFW questions, and gave us an exclusive peek at their mood board and model casting in action (thanks guys!):

What was the starting point for your S/S collection? The landscape and natural wonders of North Africa. We found ourselves drawn to artwork with exotic colours and a natural rawness. We developed these into prints.
Who would you LOVE to see wearing Manning Cartell? It’s a great feeling seeing people on the street in Manning Cartell!
Worst part about Fashion Week? The compromise — when you can’t achieve your vision within the deadline.
Best part about Fashion Week? The element of surprise.
First thing you’re going to do after your show? Enjoy some time unwinding with our team.
