Runway Report: Delpozo | New York Fall 2016 RTW

By

Joeph Font took us on a magical journey through graphic greatness. I love how the show started with a very Asian inspired kimono style jacket with an oversized OBI belted waist. The next garment morphed into a more exaggerated version of the predecessor. Each outfit throughout the collection evolved into the next. Many of the outfits were accessorized with opera length gloves, just blooming with flowers. They emerged out of the hyper-wide sleeves, providing a…

Runway Report: Reem Acra | New York Fall 2016 RTW

By

Reem Acra’s Fall 2016 RTW show was sheer brilliance! And when I say sheer, I mean most every garment was sheer in someway, shape or another. The best characteristics of the Courtiers of Europe, The Show Girls, and The Roaring Twenties Flappers all combined into one of the most sexy, breathtakingly beautiful, and impeccably detailed collections. Art Deco was clearly the inspiration here. The Art Deco influence was seen in a multitude of Geometric shapes,…

Alberta Ferretti | SS 2016

Runway Report: Alberta Ferretti | Milan Spring 2016 RTW

By

If this is what happens when a Designer goes into the desert, has a Vision Quest, and comes out birthing a hugely creative product, then I think every designer should follow suit! Retro-Desert could have been the title of this collection. The inspiration- The Desert, served as a literal backdrop for Alberta Ferretti’s Spring 2016 RTW. The film of the Desert rolling during the show combined with the chanting music was hypnotic and took us…

Fendi SS 2016 Runway Review

Runway Report: Fendi | Milan Spring 2016 RTW

By

Fendi | Milan Spring 2016 RTW Fendi Spring 2016 RTW Collection was a woven, whip stitched and harnessed to perfection. Most of the completely body-conscious dresses all had cut outs on the side at the waist, which made them look like two pieces joined with the centerpiece. Even though the dresses have cut outs on the side, they are wearable, interesting, and completely pretty. This cut out detail throughout the collection added uniformity and was…

Runway Report: London Spring 2016 RTW

By

Anya Hindmarch I love the Graphic greatness here. The Mod-Modern Top meets Wonder Woman Boots and classic shape tote full of fun.     Erdem It’s always great when the fabric’s patterns take you through the lines of the design. The bandeau and the detached sleeves were an mélange of both Current and centuries old. The Cameo patterned skirt was fitted and fluid in all the right places. Layers upon layers of silk chiffon were…

Runway Report: Yigal Azrouël | New York Spring 2016 RTW

By

The beauty in Yigal Azrouël’s Spring 2016 RTW collection is the juxtaposition of the very soft fluid fabric mixed with the tailored lines. Even when the garment is all lace, mostly see-through, and a body contouring design; there is something very alluringly feminine and lady like about it at the same time. The Collection is a unique balance of elegance, lines, and appeal. The garments were in all black, Yigal Azrouël’s signature black and white,…

Area Spring 2016 RTW New York

Runway Report: Area|New York Spring 2016 RTW

By

Fluid, flowing, and fabulous! Area’s Spring 2016 RTW collection really was a stunner. It’s the product of collaboration between Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk. It is a mixture of 70’s meets Louis XIV meets the future. If I had to make a conjecture, a beach would have been the inspiration. Water and sand are echoed through out the collection in form and in the color palette. From the garments, which take form fitting to a…

An Australian + an Austrian = A Fabulous Paris Fashion Week Show. Kym Ellery’s eponymous collection was truly a standout at Paris Fashion week.

Runway Report: Antonio Marras | Milan Fall 2015 RTW

By

Art Nouveau (“New Art”) was considered to the forbearer of Modernism. The designs, art, furniture and textiles were all inspired by the sinuous lines of nature. The swirling and undulating flowers, vines, pods and leaves all curved to form what is known today as Art Nouveau. Antonio Marras’ collection was filled with Art Nouveau textiles and detailing. This can be seen in his clothing especially in the blue pieces and it is also echoed throughout…

London Fashion Week Highlights

By

Here are my highlights from London Fashion Week Fall 2015 RTW     Marios Schwab These dresses are hauntingly beautiful and definitely dramatic. The details, in particular, the metal and leather made the inner anatomy outwardly beautiful. This was one of my favorite collections.     Emilia Wickstead Emilia Wickstead’s dress is pattern perfection. Not only is it graphic, but the draping and placement of pattern delivers a dramatic and flattering silhouette.       Erdem…
