LUCA LUCA FALL 2009 SHOW

Where else to showcase the glamour of Luca Luca’s Fall 2009 collection than at the glamourous Plaza Hotel. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to get photos from the runway because of placement but I did manage to get a couple backstage and a backstage interview (thanks to my friend and involuntary interviewer, Kim). Heraled […]

TONI MATICEVSKI FALL 2009 SHOW

Held offsite at the Altman Building, Toni Maticevski’s collection was like a dream, a fantasy even. The show was filled with luxuriously flowing long dresses and edgy avant garde looks. Let’s begin with the edgy looks. Filled with sequins, metallics, feathers and beaded pieces I really loved the sequined metallics in the collection, it had […]

TAMARA POGOSIAN FALL 2009 PRESENTATION

Inspired by works of Tamara De Lempicka during the “Great Depression”, Tamara Pogosian’s collection truly embodies the shapes and feel of the 30’s. When asked more about her inspiration, Tamara said, “With this collection I am embracing the strength and fluidity of her work with day to evening looks contouring the female form” Held at […]

CARLOS CAMPOS FALL 2009 SHOW

Carlos Campos featured both menswear and womenswear this season as he has did last season. He has a very strong voice in his menswear collection, an excellent eye for shape and cut. Shown offsite at the Altman Building, Carlos’s show was running a bit behind. The show was slated to start at 7pm but actually […]

THUY FALL 2009 SHOW

LELA ROSE FALL 2009 SHOW

Another designer that has captured my heart, not only with her collection of shoes for Payless (which in this economy, I thank god for everyday for feeding my shoe habit) but for her ultra feminine, flowy and romantic garments which I drool over every season. The brand insignia alone reveals the line in general – […]

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 […]
