These ladies will definitely be responsible for making getting dressed in fall 2011 a no-brainer. Here’s our thoughts on the fall 2011 collections by Cynthia Rowley, Rebecca Taylor, Rebecca Minkoff, and Mara Hoffman.

Rowley ushers in a much dropped hem length, along with a much-needed update on velvet, giving it a sheer and embellishment quality that has moved the fabric into an ultra hip category.
The designer proved that you don’t have to forgo the feminine when it comes to frigid temperatures outside. Taylor showed her fair share of shearling, with jewel tone satin blouses, silk chiffon dresses, cashmere pants and sweater skirts in lively hues and prints layered underneath.
A lot of people don’t know that before she was the creator of the “morning after” bag that catapulted her career, Rebecca Minkoff was a womenswear designer, and very good one at that. Now a few seasons in with her return to clothing, Minkoff shows us how she’s evolved, along with the story of her customer – a very pretty, very cool, urbanite who loves a body skimming cut — on everything.
I have no idea how, season after season, Hoffman manages to come up with new, innovative prints in great silhouettes, but either way, I’ve got to have them – all!
