British designer Stella McCartney collaborated with European retail chain C&A to launch an accessibly priced collection available in Mexico during the autumn season. Models were sent down the runway wearing tailored suits, silk shirts, and silk dresses. They even showed off the clothing while playing musical chairs. The designer presented a ready-to-wear collection that was young, fun, feminine and light in the middle of Mexico City on Thursday (October 18) evening. The collection includes emblematic pieces from McCartney's recent collections. Hem-lines were kept short, torsos tight, and electric blues, whites and pinks gave a hint of uplifting color to each ensemble. Speaking at the end of the show, McCartney said she hoped her fans liked the collection. "I'd like to congratulate everyone at C&A and everyone in my team who worked really hard to create this collection for you guys and I hope that you enjoy it. I hope that you bring it into your homes and into your wardrobes and it's with you for a very long time. I hope you enjoy it, thank you so much again for having me," she said. The collection will be available starting October 29, 2012 in dozens of C&A stores around Mexico and prices range from $449.00 pesos ($34.92 dollars) to $3,999.00 pesos ($311.00 dollars) per piece.
