Amazing Draping & Pleating
Designers weren’t afraid to show off their deft skills at draping and pleating this season, as horizontal, perfectly laid draping (seen above) and rich, Fortuny-like pleats added an air of ladylike classicism to Spring 2011’s runways.

That 70′ Show
Every season boasts a general consensus of inspiration from decades past, and this time around the ’60s and ’70s most visibly reined. Everyone was talking about the Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs collections that heavily mimicked the 1970s vibe with everything from the hair and sunglasses to the free flowing silhouettes, fabrications, and color palettes.

This season I was very much in love with the use of pristine whites on the runway. It added a particular grace to each of the garments. Made from delicate chiffons and silks, these pieces were simple and tasteful. The flowing white fabrics were alluring, with hints of sophistication as well as seduction. The way the material clung to the body showed a true appreciation for the feminine form and highlighted the extraordinary talent of these inspiring designers.
Who doesn’t love bright colors and eye-catching patterns? I sure do! My favorite looks this fashion week were the fabulously, funky designs of Zac Posen and Rachel Antonoff. Their quirky baby doll dresses in blues, greens, yellows, and reds were brilliantly conceived and tons of fun! Each look had such a fresh, youthful spirit. Perfect for a girl who simply loves life!
