Blue Plate Expands Fashion Empire with Launch of Two New Labels: Blue Plate Couture by Seema and Blue Plate Accessories Debut with Fall/ Holiday '07 Collections

Catching up at Blue Plate’s launch of its two new labels…perfect for party girls!! Tempting tops and cocktail frocks…not to mention lamé shiney hiney leggings for that added pop!

The showroom dummies danced sweetly with the debut of the new aptly named accessory line: “The New Disco Diva.”

Seema Anand is the designer behind the launch couture of the line. The collection fuses traditional Indian bold prints, embroideries galore, and jewel-toned hues that combine a hip mix of flashy sequins, pallettes, and Austrian crystals for pure glitz and edgy glam. With prices starting at $200 for couture...are you for sure…?

The Blue plate name is derived from the term ‘”blue plate special”…so for a collection that serves up foxy fashions…we’ll take an order for here…and to go.
