The collections of Elie Tahari, Bibhu Mohapatra and Michael Kors for New York Fashion Week feel more on the casual side.
Elie Tahari had a very modern collection channelling metallics, graphic abstract prints in beautiful silhouettes. I love the opening metallic blue dress with the pleats. The printed long jacket with the satin borders looks very elegant. The brown leather and chain dress is also very flattering.
Bibhu Mohapatra’s collection used a mesh like geometric print to tie the collection together. With well fitted silhouettes the stain skirts and draped dresses looked gorgeous and very feminine. The finale gowns with velvet and lines across are very beautiful. One cream floral gown with the sheer bodice is also very stunning.
For New Yorkers, Michael Kors’s collection would have been easy to relate to. His style of activewear brings style into it. The neon bright colours look even more intense against the black. The silhouettes this time are slightly larger, possibly you give you the easier movement. The gowns with the Dior-esque peplum and skirt seemed more casual.
