VERRIER FALL 2009 SHOW

As a little girl, one of my favorite things to wear was ruffles, the Verrier Show brought back sweet memories of those careful days. This season’s looks were colorful and feminine; I might even go as far as to say girly. Influenced by French actress Catherine Deneuve’s role as Geneviève Emery in Les Parapluies de […]

MONARCHY FALL 2009 SHOW

Monarchy was one of the few shows who showcased both Menswear and Womenswear. At first sight, I immediately thought of the Equestrian lifestyle mixed in with a little dandy. I loved the clean, sharp lines, each piece was tailored to perfection. I have two favorites from the Monarchy Collection, one of the menswear looks,(particularly the […]

ADAM BY ADAM LIPPES FALL 2009 SHOW

The Adam Fall 2009 Collection was one of the few shows which featured color for the fall season. It was also one of the more classicly styled collections this season.

BET’S RIP THE RUNWAY

Hosted this time by the very sexy […]

GEORGES CHAKRA FALL 2009 SHOW

VENEXIANA FALL 2009 SHOW

Every season (yes before I started writing this blog), there is one show that I will always make sure I attend and that is Venexiana. Kati Stern is a freaking genius. Her shows are not always fun but her fun personality shines bright and strong in her collections. Her looks are always fun, sexy, classic […]
