I know I am late to the party-preparing for finals y’all, but I had to post this. The Design Collective for Evans S/S15 fashion show was the first time a plus size retailer had shown at London Fashion Week, and that is big news. I mean they literally made history. A lot of the clothes in this collection are super cute. I love the colors, the laser cut skirts, the fabrics that went from really sheer to really solid. I can’t wait to see how they translate this to their website next season.
Here is a little more info for you:

Paris Fashion Week continues to roll on without Galliano…well not quite without him. His namesake collection showed in a small salon in Paris to a smaller crowd than usual. Twenty looks went out with his usual 1930s elegant flair. He is such a genius, and it sucks that he had to fall so hard, but racism and anti-Semitic remarks will not be tolerated.
The looks that Cédric Charlier designed for Cacharel were somewhat bland and boring to me. The only thing that saved the collection were the prints.
I don’t know if it was the hair or makeup or clothes, but the looks at John Paul Gaultier were very old and matronly. I really think I would have to see these clothes off the runway to get a better look at them.
Christophe Lemaire did a great job of bringing the 70s and Asian silhouettes back to Hermes. I loved the colors, patterns, and shape/cut of the fabrics in this collection. Oh and the leather word was devine. Good job!.
Giles Deacon is doing his best to bring Emanuel Ungaro back from the brink of destruction. While I think this collection could have been a little better, it is a wonderful change from the drama and bad design we saw with the line’s previous designers.
After some turmoil (Lindsay Lohan) , and then some more turmoil (Estrella Archs), Ungaro is a success. Giles Deacon did a really good job of bringing back some glory and none of the shame to the Paris fashion house. Photos are from Style.com. Enjoy!
