Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: The Jay Godfrey Live Report Day 4
Marc Jacobs’ Polka Dots at Fashion Week
OK, so I hate polka dots. I mean really, really dislike. SO, you can imagine how surprised I was that I loved Marc Jacobs’ polka-dot extravaganza last evening. Marc, always one to surprise and make you think, made polka dots sexy AND sophisticated. Who woulda thunk? But it wasn’t JUST about polka dots. There were also beautiful lace pieces, fully embroidered dresses,
skirts of rubber disc-like paillettes, and a gorgeous color palette that included standouts like inky blue, scarlet, and a stunning peacock-ish teal.
Fashion Designer to Watch: Kevork Kiledjian on the Runway
Another thing I really love about fashion is that there are always new names to watch for. Kevork Kiledjian—the first thing I thought was, who the hell is that? But now, after seeing his show, I am truly impressed. His collection was extremely sexy, and his use of fringe, leather, lace, and lamé only helped him create a steaming hot collection.
Donna Karan’s New Collection: No Cliché
Donna Karan showed another breathtaking collection of real clothes for real women. It’s almost cliché at this point to discuss the beauty of her draping, but honestly, there is no other way of describing it. While the collection was refined and covered, the silhouettes were extremely sexy in their own way.
