New York fashion week : Day 2

[couture2.jpg]"I'm known for dresses," said Yigal Azrouël before his show, "but I love a woman in a suit. It just looks so fresh." I love the cuts of his collection, and the connection between both the men and women's wear.

I love the use of Fake fur and faux leather within Wayne Lee's collection, he proves that it can still be beautifully made and look stunning without the harm toward animals. I love the layering and shapes of all the garments, they can work stunning together or even as separates.
Wayne Lee is definitely an upcoming designer to watch out for

At Ruffian there were stunning jersey dresses inset with sequins of crescent moons and mohair sweatshirts worn with high-waisted, shimmery silk moiré leggings.

Backstage, David Neville said, "It's a pivotal moment for us; it's our first women's show." They took their inspiration, they explained, from the "crazy English guys who climbed Mount Everest in the twenties in tweed."
I must say i absolutely love this collection, its something new for Rag & Bone the from the bolo ties, backpacks, knit sacks, legwarmers, stack-heel hiking boots, and more of those urban-girl must-have scarves, each look is a refreshing take on tweed layering.

Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi really brought their work to a new level in their Preen collection from the stunning cocoon coats to the airily sophisticated silk and cashmere dresses, the cuts of each piece is stunning and executed perfectly.

Before the show, the pair explained that their starting point was the Peter Saville floral album-cover design of New Order's Power, Corruption & Lies. "That was the feminine, almost pretty side," Thornton said, "and then we wanted to add masculine tailoring."

Whats not to love about Nicole Millers work its always perfectly proportioned for the women's body and has a unique quirkiness thats brings a youth and sexiness.
This season she went for a harder edge with biker jackets which were done in leather and wool and gorgeous Body-con ruched dresses.

"There's Northern elements—but presented in a refined way," the 29-year-old Toronto native said of his Fall collection. "It's not about trapper style."

"There's intense workmanship in these clothes," Julian Louie told Style.com ,"and those are the details that get lost in a show."
I really adore the mixing of silk and velvet throughout his collection, the paterns strong and cuts really give a beautiful outline to the body.

I really love to see how Jason Wu is experimenting with new shapes and ideas, although I found the collection as a whole quite split up, each piece is clearly stunning and has a royal princess vibe to it.

I am definitely noticing Doo-Ri Chung's collections more and more each season, her has a wonderful eye for draping and modernising the way of draping by combining it with masculine tailoring. The collection was critiqued as having a lack of focus, but I personally felt it flowed well and had a stunning overall look.

The "chic monster-girl collection" was how Rowley described Fall, and it was heavy on volume and texture. This is definitely my favourite work of Cynthia Rowley I love the mix of heavy textures and colours, giving a strong and youthful look.

Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon gave their imaginary Fall muse a familiar backstory: A generous grandmother from Greenwich, Connecticut, has bequeathed her a new wardrobe, and she's had it tailored for a more modern fit.

I love the modernised School-girl vibe Cynthia Steffe brought this season, with perfectly tailored pinafore dresses to tiny pleated skirts in leather and tweed. I especially loved the short, distressed-sequin dress matched with an oversize, fur-trimmed moleskin parka.

Charlotte Ronsons collection had a thrown-together sexiness that I really like.

"We started thinking about traditional Japanese fashion, and early-eighties Comme, and Yohji, which we love," Tagliapietra said backstage the night of the show.

Christian Siriano has come along was since winning Project Runway and has certainly made a name for himself in the fashion industry as a designer. Siriano has a signiture of Glamour, which always comes across in his collections, but I'm finding his work to be slightly boring I want to see him expand and give something new and different, take a risk.
