“More is More”@ Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012

Posted By: Terri

Leave it to the magnificent Oscar de la Renta, to design a collection filled with more baubles and bangles and beading than a remake of the movie Cleopatra. Oscar de la Renta’s Fall Collection premiered this week with a massive 62 outfits. There were so many looks, so many different fabrications and so much intricate detailing that the mantra surely most have been “More is More” for Fall 2012….

NYFW 2012…Two for Review…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week is officially on. A number of designers previewed their collections today with many of the BIG NAMES to come later in the week. I perused the collections on www.style.com(where you can see each and every collection in its entirety).Here are two designers that previewed today: BCBG and Kimberly Ovitz-

The BCBG Collection was filled with one central design theme…Color Blocking. With the exception of this basic black trench featured above the colleciton reads like  a paint sample swatch sheet on steroids. Not one of my faves….but you probably figured that out already.

Kimberly Ovitz ‘s collection was dark and flowing. An assortment of outfits were presented that seem to glide over the body and have minimal detailing. Reminded me of Donna Karan in the early years but not quite as lush…

Zac Posen is having a Ball!

I’ve always said: “I’ve never met a dinner dress I didn’t like…and if that dinner dress should be a drop dead gorgeous BALLGOWN – all the better!”

Zac Posen’s latest collection for Spring 2012 was filled with one fabulous ballgown after another. In an effort to put a little spring back in your step on this Tuesday, I thought what better way than a quick glimpse of what Zac gave back to viewers at New York Fashion Week. Enjoy!

New York Fashion Week Spring 2012..Part 1

BCBG Max Azria Spring Colleciton 2012

It’s New York Fashion Week for Spring 2012. The collections have just started to grace the catwalk and I’m here to tell you that Spring 2012 looks verr.r.r.y bright. Warm weather naturally inspires a vibrant palette and Spring 2012,has hints of color from the greatest designer of all…Mother Nature, including  sky blue, orange melon, sunny yellow and more. Of course you do have your standard bright white and basic black but for the most part collections are infusing jolts of colors and prints that will make you long for more warm weather days ahead.

Galliano Update…Cancelled Catwalk!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

 

There was a major snafu in the fashion world last week when Designer John Galliano, voiced anti-Semitic thoughts in a very public way. (The rant was similar in tone to the numerous  Charlie Sheen tyraids except different subject matter and without the  hookers..I mean girlfriends). Galliano was immediately fired from the House of Dior Couture and is believed to be in rehab somewhere in the United States.  Sidney Toledano-President of Christina Dior decided to cancel the catwalk scheduled for last Friday and instead have an intimate presentation on Sunday in a flower and antique strewn filled mansion.  Here is a glimpse of the Galliano Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection. Let us hope that the very talented yet troubled Mr. Galliano receives the help he so desperately needs. 

P.S. Mr. Galliano-If you are in rehab in the U.S. please be advised that Charlie Sheen is doling out recovery advice..if you should bump into him at any time in rehab or receive a call and find yourself listening to him..write it down and do the exact opposite of whatever he says..just a heads up!

Donna Karan Designs “Graceful” Collection.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

Donna Karan is one ambitious woman. Every season she designs two…count um …two separate collections for New York Fashion Week. Her very upscale “luxury collection” is appropriately names Donna Karan, and her secondary line which evokes a very hip, uber chic and trendy look is named DKNY.  Donna presented both collections this week and true to form the Donna Karan Label was exquisitely designed with fabrications that literally flowed over and around the body. I have always said that nobody… but nobody, drapes fabric better than Donna Karan.

I often wonder when I view a collection where the design inspiration comes from? This Fall 2011 collection for the Donna Karan label had me thinking that perhaps Donna was channeling, Grace Kelly in her heyday (think 1950’s Hollywood starlet and early days-Princess of Monaco). Look closely and see if you don’t notice Grace Kelly “signature pieces” within the Donna Karan Label: the long scarf wrapped around the neck, the structured handbag, the simple lines of the wrapped coat and the cinched in waist on her jackets. All so beautiful. All so well constructed. All so GRACE – FUL!!!!

Jason Wu on Speed dial!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

First Lady Michelle Obama literally put designer Jason Wu on the fashion map when she wore his beautiful white gown to the Inaugural Ball in January 2009…. Fast forward two years and Jason Wu is still going strong. His Fall 2011 collection at New York Fashion Week is a beautiful mix of intricate detailing, lush fabrications and exquisite styling…I have a feeling that this collection will have Jason Wu on First Lady Michelle Obama’s speed dial.
