Spring 2013 RTW : Gary Graham

The first show of New York Fashion Week 2013! Gary Graham's style is very boho in spring. There are  a lot of prints and a variety of fabrics and textures together. It's all put together brilliantly. The sheer soft fabrics in earthy colours and patterns are paired together with white. Another feature here is the draping. I love the black top with the symmetrical draping. A lot of the separates with asymmetrical drapes look really great. The collection has incredibly unique pieces. People looking for more seasonal and Persian influences with clothes will…Read more

Fall 2012 Couture : Giambattista Valli

Valli's couture collection paints the picture of a beautiful garden. With peaks of volume and prints, the collection is beautiful. The transition from red to green makes the contrast colours look very harmonious. I love the use of feathers to accentuate the waist and the applique. To imagine all this done by hand, you can truly appreciate the craftsmanship. I love the green flowy gowns and the high ruffle neck ones. I also liked the one shoulder green and black print gown with the layered skirt. Each piece is so unique and yet they…Read more

Fall 2013 Couture : Versace

Versace's couture collection was very well received and deservedly so. There was so much colour, feminine and sensual pieces there. They incorporated a lot of new fabrics and intricate work on the bodice as well. The opening blazer and skirt with the large belt was a knock out. It looks so simple and yet had so much detail it in. I loved the gowns with the tight bodice, slit open leg and layers and flowing trail. They all look gorgeous. Many of the gowns had cut outs with crystals covering them up. They…Read more

Resort 2013 : Jonathan Saunders

Jonathan Saunders has a very colour blacked resort collection. All pieces are paired with contrasting colours and stand out for its boldness. Many of them have a lovely jacquard throughout. Then come the gradient prints which look like noise patterns to me. I think the beehive shape is cute though. I love all the outerwear in this collection. The finale red coat dress is really beautiful.                             Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more

Resort 2013 : Lela Rose

Lela Rose's collection consists of pencil dress and silhouettes that certainly shape the body well. I like the colour blocked orange dress, the ivory strapless gown with the embellished bodice. I like that all outfits here have something unique about it, be it the print, technique or colour. The backless cobalt blue gown is gorgeous. I feel that the collection lacks separates though.                                     Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more

Resort 2013 : Valentino

Valentino's resort collection feels like you've just stepped into a big garden. All the dresses have floral appliques which look absolutely gorgeous. I can't go into very detail here because there are so many that I adore. But some of the pieces that do stand out are the magenta leopard print dress, the white lace jumpsuit, the powder blue floral dress, the lace green trousers and the pastel floral coat.                                              …Read more

Resort 2013 : Elizabeth and James

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen's collection looks like an extension of their own fashion imprint. I like the colour palette here. That beautiful yellow colour is universally flattering. The clothes are casual but retain an air of poise and formality. I love all the shirts in this collection. The grey and cream blazer tow tone blazer is perhaps my favourite from this collection.                             Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more

Resort 2013 : Emilio Pucci

Emilio Pucci's resort collection, draws inspiration from the safari and military silhouettes. But among these harsh ideas there beautiful and soft kaftans and prints that tone it down it summer. I like the olive green which is a primary colour in this collection. The large embroidered coat in the same is gorgeous. A similar full length kaftan is also very stunning. The peplum maxi dress with a deep v neck and ruffle collar is probably one of my favourites here. I love the blue, black and white combination. I works really well. Other favourites include…Read more

Resort 2013 : Helmut Lang

Helmut Lang's collection has an androgynous but sleek beauty to it. I love the white and beige piped shirt. The two tone grey blazer is gorgeous and looks very futuristic. The latter half of the collection showcases an abstract print. It reminds me of the Star Trek keyboards and that's enough to have me on board. But I like the dark brown top with that glossy print as well as the cream dress with the black print.                           Image Credit :…Read more

Resort 2013 : J. Mendel

I'ma  sucker for gorgeous sheer flowy gowns and J.Mendel's collection left me speechless. The tight bodice silhouette with the twisted piping that goes across and the beautiful sheer layers below, it looks so amazing. This collection has your pop of colour in the floral dresses, faux fur paired with leather and gorgeous gowns in muted colours. One of my favourites is the crushed metallic print dress with pockets. It looks very modern and casual at the same time. That grey-blue colour is just lovely and the very first gown in that shade has an…Read more
