Marchesa fall 2010 collection

It wasnt all that long ago that I was drooling all over the amazing Marchesa gowns that walked the red carpets during the season of awards.. I especially loved the white origami gown worn by Kate Hudson to the Golden Globes. Well that was only the appetizer because they showed their latest collection on wednesday at NY fashion week and I fell in love with them all over again. These two women [ Georgina and Keren] have a way with fabric, they know how to manipulate their garments into the most unsual shapes that still remain stylish, fashion forward and flattering!

Ocar de la renta also showed his designs on Wednesday, and his collection didn’t disappoint. He made use of bright colors and bold prints, and yet managed to keep the collection looking high fashion and classy. As a professional bridal designer he already has extensive experience designing gowns that bring the best out of every woman and he definitely brought those skills into play in this latest collection!

Vera Wang & Badgley Mischka hot off the runway!

This week I’ve been closely watching all the bridal designers that are showing their ready-to-wear formal collections at the New York fashion week. Vera Wang has always been one of my favorites, she just has a way of creating unique shapes and styles with exquisitely draped fabric without the garments looking over worked or exaggerated. Whenever I think of her, the first thing that pops into my head is clouds of billowing tulle floating everywhere, because tulle really seems to be her main fabric of choice. Her fall 2010 collection stayed true to her refined work ethic, the color palette was mostly neutral colors. I adore the sheer necklines and sheer sleeves that she used in some of her gowns.. that woman is definitely after my heart.

Mark and James of Badgley Mischka put on an interesting show. I didn’t really think their collection was cohesive, they seemed to have stolen a gown from everybody elses collection because they had so many different themes, styles and color palettes going on at the same time. Nevertheless I did fall in love with several of the gowns in their collection, even though I was too crazy about the collection as a whole. They definitely thought about every woman when they put their collection together because there is something in there for everyone.
