New York Fashion Week Fall 2011 - Oscar de la Renta and Marchesa

Oscar de la Renta has to be one of my favourite designers.  He always seems to amaze me and this collection was no exception!  My core essential trend for this winter is of course the faux fur.  I love how Oscar de la Renta embraced this trend taking it to a whole new level.. elegance, sophistication, and femineity.  The collection includes amazing knits, classic coats, fur headpieces, jackets and vests, crop jackets, amazing gowns and exquisite little dresses.
     Marchesa came out in well, true Marchesa style!  The exquisite embroidery and use of lace is gorgeous and of course I love their use of tulle.  This collection seemed a little darker than previous collections as it was inspired by Miss Havisham of Great Exceptations.  The somewhat 'decaying' and 'destroyed' element added a unique twist to the pieces.
