Paris Fashion Week Is Still Going On!!!

As much as I love paying attention to all of the different fashion weeks, it can get overwhelming. Can you imagine if I had to travel to all of them. I did New York this year that was crazy. I mean it was fun, but it was crazy ripping and running all over town, and doing homework, and doing blog work. Anyway….I think Paris Fashion Week ends on Wednesday. In the meantime, check out these collections. Photos from Style.com.

John Galliano designed some kind of sailor themed Christian Dior show that seemed more Gilligan’s Island than anything. It wasn’t bad. When I heard the reports of a sailor themed show, I said to myself uh-oh not another sailor themed fashion show, but I liked it. I think it was the colors and prints that did it for me.

Cacharel was beautiful. The colors were amazing. The prints were amazing! Very impressed with what I saw. I would buy so many of the dresses in that show. They were so bright and beautiful.

Jean Paul Gaultier gets a standing ovation from me. He used plus sized models again. AGAIN! He used Beth Ditto, Crystal Renn, and Marguita Pring. The collection was inspired by rock and roll and Joan Jett, hence the wigs.

Viktor & Rolf’s collection was inspired by the men’s shirt. I love how they took said inspiration and made pants that looked like they were made from shirt arms, and big linebacker tops that looked like shirt exploded many times over. The design duo always know how to create something creative that you might not have thought of doing before.

More New York Fashion Week Reviews

Like I said in the other review post, the woman that these designers are creating clothes for is growing up. Even when she is edgy, she is mature in the way that she dresses. Honestly I think it is great, because women have to mature in their tastes and sense of style. That doesn’t mean that you can’t keep the same sense of style or taste. You just have to mature and embrace change. There are a lot of looks this season that are great for ladies who lunch, young business professionals, and those women that want to look pulled together without looking fussy. This post is going to be long, so I am going to break it up into little bits. Photos from Style.com.

Prabal Gurung’s latest collection is one of his best yet. He used bright color when he needed it and used neutrals when he needed to tone down things, and yet there was a balance between the two.

Jason Wu showed another wonderful collection. Another trend that I have noticed this season is the sheer look. I think it started at Richard Chai and moved on from there. So if you are comfortable going bare…DO IT!!!!

Z Spoke by Zac Posen is Zac Posen’s new lower-priced line that is aimed at young customers.  This line still features loads of color and crazy prints, and is young and flirty. While I do think Crystal Renn’s weight is her business, she was looking a little hungry (no pun intended) as she walked in this show.

Doo.Ri’s collection was beautiful and ghostly. Sometimes mostly white collections can get to be a little boring, but this one was full of one beautiful piece after another.

With A Détacher, Mona Kowalska created a collection that reminds me of fall. It irks me when designers design for the wrong season, but this collection actually looks really good.

Alexander Wang showed a dark, dark, dark collection last season, but this season he decided to go the lightest light he could go. Like Doo.Ri show, the clothes were mostly white with a few muted colors sprinkled in the mix. The whole collection was very natural.
