Happy Valentine’s Day to all the New York Fashion Week lovers out there. Below, the collections we fell in love with. NYFW, you’re the best Valentine ever!
Sachin + Babi – Husband and wife team, Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia, are probably having the Valentine’s Day of their lives as they staged their first runway show today. The fairly new label used leather in it’s most delicate form to add edge to chiffon and other such fabrics. We feel the dresses below embody the theme of the collection and display a range of necklines, sleeves and straps. The double thigh-high slits (double sexy) are sure to be a red carpet favorite.
Naeem Khan – A strong connection to Indian culture was the root of this collection. According to Naeem Khan, “It started with a dot.” The dot he spoke of is the bindi, a red mark or jewel worn by Indian women to ward off evil or signify marriage. The idea of the bindi led to a collection inspired by Indian body art. Khan created a decadent assortment of gowns and separates using beads, appliques, patterns and textures. The beautiful collection electrified the runway in their movement, contouring silhouettes and plunging necklines or low backs.
Vera Wang – One can’t go wrong in Vera Wang; and ever since she sent black wedding dresses down the runway for her Fall 2012 Bridal Collection, she proved to be an innovator and forward thinker. For her Fall 2012 RTW Collection Wang continues to color outside of the lines and we love it! Not the most wearable collection but we can appreciate the originality and inventiveness. Until next time…
