After several seasons of trying feverishly to get into one of the most coveted shows of New York Fashion Week and the entire fashion industry, I felt so blessed and fortunate to be able to cover the Monique Lhuillier S/S 2012 show- and to get front row, AMAZING! (check the video)
World renowed and sought after by celebrities and social elites alike for her bridal couture, Lhuillier steps out and amazes the fashion world with an equally stunning RTW line mixed in with elegant couture gowns for her S/S 2012 collection.
One of the stunners that caught my eye instantly is the yellow/saffron mermaid cut dress above. Simple and understated elegance with some ruching throughout it is the perfect understanding of the definition of classy. Another runway favorite I have is the floor sweeping tie-dyed blue ball gown dress. For many industry folks, a tie-dyed dress may be fashion suicide specially sending it as the closing look for New York Fashion Week, but I have to disagree on the basis that the final finished product is stunning and well executed. For me the combination of white and multiple shades of blue is refreshing and great for a red carpet event during the spring and summer seasons.
Now touching on the RTW, one of the obvious favorite is the yellow trench inspired wrap dress with black lace details on the front. Another piece I fell in love with is the men's wear inspired ankle cropped tuxedo trousers with the complimenting jacket. I find it stunning and sexy when masculine menswear can be translated and executed well into a strong feminine womenswear but with the same impeccable tailoring.
I'm certainly looking forward to NYFW F/W 2012 and what Monique Lhuillier has in stored for the fashion world. Stay tuned for the upcoming season.
