Belt designer enters European market with scarf designs

With Fall 2014 fashion collections ready to take the catwalk, don't expect the accessories designer to be sitting on the sidelines.

"Fashion Week, whether it be New York, Milan or Paris, is as much about what is happening inside the runway venue as is outside. Street style is so exciting! You can see the influences of music, film, art and current news... and of course, there is travel!"

says Suzi Roher, the designer for the globally recognized belt brand. After 30 years, she is again heading into the European market - this time with a fledgling scarf business.

The Toronto-based designer whose belts can be found in department stores like Neiman Marcus, Saks and Holt Renfrew, and a plethora of specialty stores intercontinentally plans to pave her way across the pond and well beyond with her scarves in the upcoming season.

"The overall inspiration will always be something 'artistic' with a little poetry and fun mixed in,"

explains Michael Day, Roher's partner in life and business as well as the Photographer and Art Director. "We like to tell 'stories'. Some of these stories are rendered in pieces like Rita's Wedding or Sunglasses; the latter to be seen in the newest ad campaign, being waved like a flag by the duo's daughter and brand model, Samantha as she rides on the back of a motorcycle in Thailand.
