I am peppering my day of laundry, packing for my ski trip, and doing my hair with New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week runway shows for the Fall 2009 Collections. All of the designers have not yet premiered their line (still waiting on Zac Posen, Calvin Klein, Christian Siriano, Custo Barcelona and Ralph Lauren), but I already have my pick of favorites. I very much love a designer who knows how to create the look of a powerful woman and/or a classy lady. These designers below do that for me. Take a look at their shows using the links below.
Carolina Herrera - My mouth was open the entire time. STUNNING. This is by far the richest- looking line I have ever seen in my life. Those pant suits/ensembles! OMG. I want one now!
Badgley Mischka - These men surely do know how to dress a woman. There's a simplicity about the elegance that I adore. The line is not too in your face, but it definitely stands out.
Diane von Furstenberg - DVF gets a little animal and tribal inspired in her line, which made the show pop. Her line is definitely for the younger consumer like me. DVF created a fun line this time around.
Narcisco Rodgriguez - I've been a fan of his ever since T.C. bought me his perfume. But as for the line, can you say BOLD?! I have to say that his line was probably the most creative. The white tights, the yellows, the hoods, THE HAT, the hot pink splashes. That black and white coat with the pink accents...FIERCE. Even the runway disposition was neat.
Max Azria - This line has a futuristic and hard edge to it that I like, i.e. the skinny, black pants with the booties and the long, leather gloves. There's lots of sheer and lace combinations going on in here, which I wouldn't mind working into my wardrobe somehow.
BCBGMaxAzria (honorable mention) - Because I've always been a fan of the soft with the hard, I love love love the gold (and sometimes grey) leggings and clunky platform shoes/booties paired with the softness of the clothes.
And just because...
Barbie Runway Show - This is quite interesting now isn't it? lol.
I'm expecting big things from Zac Posen and Christian Siriano, so I'll keep you posted.
