Before the show even began, all anyone could notice was that glossy red runway. Black ropes sectioned it off so not even the front row attendees could step on it. The collection began with some leather looks in hunter green and bordeaux (probably the biggest color trends for Fall ’12). Then moved onto some skirt suits and slinky dresses while finishing off with powerful cut-out and intricately beaded gowns.
These leather outfits, mixed with lace and chiffon, along with contrasting fabrics, patterns and textures are meant to come together to reveal confidence, beauty, strength and freedom. Hence the inspiration of feminine power for this collection.
I loved the dresses towards the end with the cut-outs. They have such a specific occasion but their impact on the runway is just unbelievable…and of course it takes a super confident woman to wear them!
