Kati Stern is crazy! I’ll admit it, she’s brazen, funky, bold, is in no way, shape or form a timid woman AND I LOVE HER FOR THAT! I had the pleasure of attending her Fall 2011 Collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The first thing I did after I sat down was look at the run of show – how many looks? 69!!!! Yes, she has a lot to say and she does it with her designs. Her collection, which some people say needed editing (I say to them – shhhh, fashion’s going on here!), gave you chic separates, sophisticated cocktail dresses and then blew you away with her red carpet and fantasy wedding gowns, all mixed in with a bit of edginess that can only be Kati Stern. Get ready for pictures, there’s a lot.
Do I see leather harem pants in the photo above? There were so many cocktail dresses to choose from. I love the unconventional lavender plaid and the exquisite embellishment on the shift dress is just so chic
The gown speak for themselves. For as long as I’ve been going to the Venexiana Show, I’ve been waiting for an actress to wear one of her gowns and I’m usually very disappointed that I do not see Venexiana on the red carpet, I mean really, what are some of the stylists thinking? Kati Stern creates gorgeous gown after gorgeous gown; beauties that are sure to be red carpet winners. Maybe the current hot actresses are not bold enough to wear these gown – you must have personality to pull off a Venexiana gown.
and the finale, the show stoppers, the fantasy gowns, the gown that made me gasp – The Wedding gowns. Gorgeous combination of Italian Silk, Silk Organza, and Swarovski Crystals.
What can I say about the Venexiana Fall 2011 Collection besides breathtaking. Of yes – love, love, love Kati Stern. Check out the finale video below
