More NYFW Show Reviews

Some people are saying that the shows have been boring and bland this year, but I am a fan. I think a lot of these collections are really good, better than some other years. Maybe it is because I am looking at the things that designers have done in the past as opposed to looking at the season as a whole, lumping all designers together. Because I can’t get to my computer to do collages, we are going to try slideshows. Please tell me if you like the slideshows more than the collages that I make. Photos from Vogue.com.
Marc Jacobs Spring 2011
Marc Jacobs was a ball of colorful 70s glamour.  Everything was wild, crazy, and bright. No minimalism here at all. Light fabrics, satins and silks, big hats, and big slits reigned supreme for this collection.
Sophie Theallet Spring 2011
Sophie Theallet was beautiful, colorful, and feminine. The details in this collection are really breathtaking. I really loved the way that everything looked like how a spring collection should be. I loved Rodarte and Nikolas K, but I feel like spring collections should look like they belong in the spring, not the fall.

New York Fashion Week Fall 2k9!

Can I just say that after that glorious Marc Jacobs show the other day and that amazing Rodarte collection last year, I really was expecting more from Marc by Marc Jacobs and Rodarte. I am not even putting pictures up because I was so not amused with the collections.

Halston, on the other hand, was marvelous. I could see myself wearing everything that they showed, especially those blue harem pants. The leather was amazing and the silhouettes were flattering . I could see me and my mom wearing the sweater dresses. The color schemes for this collection were so amazing for the fall. Just like Marc Jacobs, this collection featured some not so recession like colors. It had blues,reds, and yellows. I loved it. I can’t wait for the fall.
