With the fashion show train still making its stops, New York played host to this year’s Fall collections last week. As always only featuring the stand out ones for me, Marchesa featured above and below gets my vote. The collection designed by Georgina Chapman and co-designer Keren Craig stood out for their classic eveningwear which harked back to old hollywood that you know will be on the red carpets very soon.
Peter Copping, Oscar de la Renta‘s handpicked successor, made his runway debut in New York and as a keen Oscar de la Renta fan I was keen to see what he had done. Both De la Renta and Copping were to have worked side by side, but de la Renta’s death, just days after Copping was appointed last October, prevented that.
Copping had just three months to put this collection together and he demonstrated his sense of colour and a special eye for detail based on the gorgeous dresses featured.
Finally Carolina Herrera who I love in bridal, turned 76 last month and seems to becomes less conventional as time goes by. She had fun last season with flowers and this Fall she chose to stick with the natural world. Her idea was to explore water with her approach both literal and abstract.
