New York Fashion Week S/2012: Oscar de la Renta and Marchesa

It's that time of the year again..New York Fashion Week!!!  Unfortunately, this year I wasn't in attendance, so of course I found the next best streaming from New York Fashion Week!  Two of my favourite collections just off the runway would have to be Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta.  (Like that's anything new!)
Oscar de la Renta
The Oscar de la Renta show streamed live this morning and of course I couldn't miss it.  Fashion's elite were out in full force and front row attendees included Rachel Zoe, Joe Zee, Nina Garcia, Ashley Olsen, Justin Timberlake and my favourite front row duo this season, Anna Wintour sitting next to Nicki Minaj!  Oscar de la Renta stunned audiences with a unique opening number..a yellow silk taffeta gown complemented with a couture lace midriff tee.  The collection progressed with amazing little white numbers followed by  dashes of colour..lime, blue, pink and red.  The collection of course ended with Oscar's signatory gowns.. my favourite part of the collection!  In comparison to Oscar de la Renta's previous collections, the 2012 Spring collection is quite fresh and young.  A welcomed surprise to the Oscar de la Renta empire!
And as for Marchesa?  I think I'm still picking my jaw up off the ground.  A completely stunning collection.  I love Marchesa..perhaps it's the tulle, or feathers or maybe the embellishments!  For the first time, this season Marchesa hit the runway instead of their usual presentation.  What made this show even more amazing?...The front row..Rachel Zoe, Olivia Palermo, Tinsley Mortimer, Louise Roe and that was just the start!
