Leading fashion designer Sue Wong announced the launch of `Eat Pray Love by Sue Wong`, a luxurious ready-to-wear collection inspired by the highly-anticipated film Eat Pray Love, which stars Julia Roberts and which releases this month. The launch of the limited-edition collection for fall 2010 will coincide with the film release and will be made available in fine department stores such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale`s, Nordstrom`s, Lord and Taylor and Dillard`s, as well as on www.saks.com, www.bloomingdales.com and www.SueWong.com .
Eat Pray Love by Sue Wong will feature pieces influenced and inspired by the story`s focus on the beauty and exotic essence of India and Indonesia, specifically, rich colours and textures, exotic flair, and intricate embellishments. Known for creating gowns with exquisite details and superior handcraftsmanship, the limited-edition collection will mark the first-ever separates collection created by Sue Wong.
"When I read Eat Pray Love, I immediately identified with the story, as many aspects of Elizabeth Gilbert`s [the protagonist] journey were synchronous with my own personal odyssey," said designer Sue Wong. "Because of the immediate connection I felt to the story, as well as its emphasis on the culture, philosophy, and, in particular, alluring mystique of the East, I was able to create a collection that was striking, exotic, and timeless, and organic to the journey in the book and forthcoming film."
The Sony Pictures film licence was brokered on behalf of Sue Wong by Jane Putch of Eyebait Licensing & Management.
