As the days of New York Fashion Week go by, the shows continue to electrify and it’s becoming a tough task to choose just three to highlight. We finally narrowed it down to these fabulous designers:
Zac Posen – Zac Posen’s Fall 2012 RTW Collection was inspired by Japan with the use of jewel tones of red and blue and the addition of kimono sleeves and obi sashes. Our favorite looks came later in the show; and as awards season continues, we immediately pictured these looks on the red carpet. Curve-hugging gowns from knee-length to floor-sweeping in an array of hues to compliment different skin tones. Don’t forget the shimmer. Top left, this strapless piece in pale, shimmering gold with its tight waist and bustier bodice wins “best dressed” today. Congratulations Mr. Posen, would you like to say a few words?
Custo Barcelona – The brothers Dalmau, Custo and David, are inspired by their world travels and compelled to consistently create collections that embody their vision in a mash-up form that loosely aims to come together on the runway. We enjoyed the mixed-print meets fusion of textures, patchwork knits and synthetic fibers vibe. For the daring, we say get in touch with your inner hobo and channel some Euro-style. Mix it up! For the more subtle, yet stylish girl, this collection works just as well if you choose to separate the pieces and tone them down with some solid colors.
Catherine Malandrino – Man-killing cat-woman? Yes, the 1942 horror flick, La Féline, featuring a temptress by day, man-killer by night cat-woman inspired the Fall 2012 Black Label Collection. The femme-fatale theme was laid out in designs with the use of stretch vinyl, embossed-crocodile leather, laser-cut leather, sheer mesh fabrics and bustier dresses. Our top picks below are sexy, borderline suggestive and perfect for a night out on the prowl. Me-Ow!!
