Vera Wang Fall Preview 2009

March 6, 2009
On Thursday, February 26th, Vera Wang had a preview of her Fall line at her garment district show room. The collection was mostly made up of black and greys, with just a few bursts of green, blue, and gold. What made the line distinct was its use of texture and unique fabrics- including neoprene, otherwise known as scuba diving wet suit material. Lots of ruffles, crinkled fabrics, ribbons, and sequins made the ordinary pieces extraordinary pieces. Out of everything in the show room, I enjoyed the accessories the most; big costume gems on earrings and necklaces, fur stoles, sequined scarfs, and big bustier-like waist belts. These are pictures from the preview:

The weekend brought in some of the top designers and more spring trends. Dresses overshadowed shorts, pants and skirts in almost every collection. Starting from left to right:

Abaete showed a blue and white oragami-inspired dress with a contrasting colored waist and the look was worn with navy tights.

Rock & Republic presented a one-shoulder ruffled top dress in black.

Donna Karan sent her thick eyebrowed models down the runway in polka dots and patterned dresses.

Tracy Reese is bringing this fall’s lace trend into Spring 2009 with a delecate nude and black dress.

Peter Som‘s magenta and orange, sweetheart neck, bustier dress would be perfect for a day at the racetracks next spring!

Max Azria for Herve Leger dresses were updated versions of his “bandage” dresses. Still form fitting, but with thinner straps and metallic colors like this silver one.

Diane Von Furstenburg’s collection was full of pattern dresses and flowing hair pieces in oranges and reds.
