Fashion Week 2008- Dresses

September 9, 2008

Dresses Dresses Every- WEAR!

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:

*Words in bold are trends that were seen in shows throughout the weekend and Monday

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.




Fashion Week- Spring Style 2009

September 6, 2008

New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week kicked off yesterday with big names like BCBGMAXAZRIA, Perry Ellis and Nicole Miller. So far, it looks like spring is going to be all about interesting necklines, grecian-inspired flowing fabrics, and an interesting mix of black, grey, purple and orange palettes. Mini and Maxi dresses were shown in most of the shows with strappy sandals in every color. Below are some of my favorites from the first day of Fashion Week:



BCBG Max Azria styled a one strap dress over a striped shirt dress, creating a feminine but casual look with yellow gladiator heels.
































Above left, Michael Angel used a beautiful pattern of greys, black and purple to create this sweeping dress. Nicole Miller created the patterned dress on the right that hugs the lines of the body a little more than Micheal Angel’s Dress. Flowing styles like these have already been seen by multiple designers during the first day of fashion week.








BCBG Max Azria also showed this red, draped mini dress. The bottom is similar to some of the styles he has shown in his Herve Leger lines. 







Fashion Week continues through next Friday so check back for more great highlights!
