New York Fashion Week Fall 2012 Day One

On the first official day of the New York Fall 2012 Ready To Wear Fashion Week, we had many things to be greatful for. I know it almost sounds religious, but hey – fashion IS my religion.

BCBG Max Azria

It was all about mixing colours and textures at BCBG Max Azria with outerwear fashioned in a mix of wool, leather and furs while neutral colours of ivory, dove grey and tan played the background setting for an array of block colours such as coral, teal, mauve and maroon. Straight silk dresses swanned down the catwalk following  jump suits and skirts fish tailed at the knees.

Tadashi Shoji

Delicate lace, velvet and embellished cocktail dresses were all the rage at Tadashi. Whether they were Scarlett, Forest Green, Electric Violet, tiered, floor length, knee length, fitted or flowing, each had a touch of Hollywood glamour teamed with a Shanghai influence.

Creatures of the Wind

I’m not even sure the word eccentric cuts it with this show. A world of colours and magical transformations gave off a somewhat mad hatter vibe. The creations of Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters were finished in pleats, mohair, leather, lace, acid yellows, mint greens and iridiscent purple. Corcheted key hole knits were teamed with Victorian-esque tartan tiered floor length skirts while a red leather and feather coat accentuated a mohair black and red striped jumper tucked into a mint green satin skirt. Although basically every piece tickled my fancy, my favourite piece was a peach leather and boiled wool dress coat that pulled in all the right places whilst still maintaining a fun edge to it.
