NY, I love you!

Hello Readers,

A little more New York Spring/Summer fashion week for you! Check out my last post here! If I ever become a stylist or have anything to do with an awards show there are several haute designers I would go to and these three top my list! I can’t wait to see these dresses on some of the biggest stars come January and February for Awards season! Here are a few of my thoughts..

Carolina Herrera

Stop and smell the roses. The delicate pastel colours, combined with ladylike crop tops, skirts and dresses were beautiful. There were pretty embellishments, chiffon and ruffles. There was a modern twist with cut out lines and pleating. It all played on a similar theme that flowed throughout the whole show. Love, love and love!

Marchesa

Feathers, sparkle, tulle and everything of opulence was on call at the Marchesa show. Big, elaborate gowns walked down the runway and my heart raced a hundred miles an hour. I can just imagine how many of these will grace carpets. The only problem with the show was that it lacked a bit of cohesion. There were black gothic inspired gowns, romantic soft layered gowns and white jumpsuits. It was a bit all over the place.

Oscar De La Renta

Oscar, King of Red Carpet Dresses, did not disappoint. The runway was put together well with the focus on fiery red Mediterranean/Spanish inspired dresses paired with espadrilles and gowns with big bows in pastel colours completed with taffeta fabric. What tied two seemingly opposite inspirations together were tea length dresses with taffeta skirts and sexy bustier top, combining ladylike with a little bit of skin baring was a perfect mesh of different ideas. What a show!

New York, New York!

Hello Readers,

Every September marks the start of gloriously new fashion from the top designers around the world! My instagram, facebook and blog feeds have been inundated with the latest looks and I’m loving what I’m seeing. Here’s an overview of a few of the shows I’ve been able to find and fash-analyse!

Diane Von Furstenberg

Lots of girly, feminine fabrics and silhouettes. Bright colours like pinks and aqua green in boho prints. Also silky, draped chiffon playsuits embellished in gold. Fringe bags were held by models and they wore hippie sandals. A nice range I just can’t see a lot of it at press releases, red carpets and formal functions. While it’s not my style I love the embellished playsuits- you could wear them with tan leather accessories for a picnic or walk in the park.

Monique Lhuillier

BAM. Explosions of colour in floral prints. I’m personally a fan of a lot of colour and lovely little mini dresses so these looks were right up my alley. These were contrasted with block colour flowy ensembles, think long skirts and puffy sleeves. Jewel toned shifts were thrown into the mix. There were some stunning red carpet worthy dresses which stylists will want to take to their a-list clients so I’m sure we’ll see a lot of Monique dresses featuring soon. This show was very wearable and appealed to all ages, particularly I can imagine, younger stars

Victoria Beckham

Lots of earthy colours and gingham which made for interesting combinations. Flowing midi skirts in neutral colours were all over the runway and so were muscle tanks with various prints. She mixed it up with cool necklines and pops of royal blue and mustard. This collection to me is a bit same/same, I don’t see much variation and even though it was cohesive it seemed a little boring. I can see it appealing to street style bloggers and personalities but I don’t think much of it will be seen on red carpets.
