Monique Lhuillier is always a crowd favorite and had a full house waiting to see what this design power house was going to present. Her Fall/Winter 2013 did not disappoint! It was a runway fit for any stylist hunting for gowns for the Oscar award season (hello Brad Goreski who was sitting front row at the show).
The setting of the show felt like you were in emerald city with an abstract patterned green background that was the perfect backdrop for the looks to come. The show started with winter whites fur collared dresses, overcoats & sheath dresses. Then it transitioned to gold opulent short dresses and prints. The volume was kicked up many notches when the red carpet worthy gowns started to make their way down the runway. The models all had their hair slicked and tied back leaving the spotlight completely on the artistry of these dresses. It was a great moment for Lhuillier who’s designs have been worn by many A-list celebrities in the past. This collection had elegance and stunning details to wow any lady looking to make a statement. Tell us what you think, which of these gowns stole your attention.
Noon by Noor is a label composed of two Bahrain cousins Sheikha Noor Al Khalifa and Sheikha Haya Al Khalifa. Their Fall/Winter 2013 collection marks their second time showing at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. This collection was sophisticated and classic with a feel of preppy chic meets eastern influence.
There were pieces that included gray and burgundy wool dropped coats, floral patterns, wide legged pantsuits and blouses accented with big bows. It was the perfect combination of feminine and masculine. It was a strong collection to remember as these ladies are bringing us quality garments that bring rich colors and classic pieces. It was no surprise to see a full range of celebrities taking in all the front row action atNoon by Noor. The lovely Olivia Palermo, Selita Ebanks and Poppy Delevingne were just a few among many others. So One Style at a Time readers make sure you chime in and share your thoughts and tell us what looks you preferred.
Special thank you to Peoples Revolution for providing us with the images to this event.
Braving the blizzard of 2013 did not stop New York Fashion Week. “The show must go on” seemed to be the theme for all Fashionistas schlepping through the ice, rain and slushy snow. So onward went the crowds and with much anticipation for the Jason Wu fashion show.
The name Jason Wu as many of you know is a household name. He is the young designer who will have not one, but two of his dresses in the Smithsonian Museum courtesy of Our First Lady, Michelle Obama. This week there was no shortage of beauty on the runway as Jason presented his Fall/Winter 2013 collection.
The show was appropriately titled, “Extreme Femininity”, and so it was. He presented tailored jackets with peplum and fur trims. Mini pleated flirty cocktail dresses and a palette that was based in black with touches of white, red, polka dots and a finale dress in cobalt blue. It was impressive and pure beauty as Jason proves once again that he understands the concept of what women want and that is to look beautiful. What are your thoughts on these looks and share with us your favorite pieces.
Designer Tadashi Soji’sFall collection was inspired by the splendor of the Russian Empire and the eventual fall of imperial rule. It was an incredible collection of velvets, tiered lace, hues of sapphire blue, burgundy, pale pink and black. The romanticism and feminine touches were abundant in all the details that Tadashi implemented in these gowns. There were many beautiful options that quite easily could make an appearance during awards season and the red carpet. This was an impressive ready to wear collection and an elegant feast for any Fashionista. Here are just a few of our favorite looks. Special thank you to the Tadashi Shoji team and HL Group for providing us with the runway images.
BCBG is always one of the most anticipated shows of Fashion Week in New York. This time Fashionistas were blown away by the pieces that came down the runway. The label stepped up the level of luxe and delivered pieces that were not only layered but detailed. Long fur vests, laser cut leather pieces and over sized sweaters topped by knit beanie hats.
