Pretty Pastels at Oscar de la Renta

Leave to Oscar de la Renta to create a pretty, youthful and feminine Fall 2012 collection.... Dashes of pastel pink and baby blue mixed with black, ribbons and bows, tulle, jewels, gems and crystals.  This is one of my favourite Oscar de la Renta collections!

NYFW Fall 2012: Marchesa

And then there's Marchesa....breathtaking, mind blowing, amazing, gorgeous, total perfection!  Marchesa's Fall 2012 collection was inspired by William-Adolphe Bouguereau's 19th Century painting A Soul Brought to Heaven.  Tulle gowns, shimmers of gold, and stunning embroidered pieces swept the ground as models graced a path of a somewhat heavenly nature.  Each piece more glamorous than the next.  Whilst the majority of the pieces represented a more angelic side symbolised through wings and feathers, other pieces represented a somewhat darker place and a level of mortality... the skeleton and muscles were incorporated in pieces throughout the collection.  However, leave it to the girls from Marchesa to see the beauty in all. 

NYFW Fall 2012: The Rachel Zoe Collection

It's that time of the year again, New York Fashion Week Fall 2012! Thought I'd begin my fashion week coverage with the one and only Rachel Zoe collection. The Rachel Zoe collection has previously been shown in the form of a presentation. For first time this season the collection made it's way down the runway! Rachel Zoe's Fall 2012 collection was inspired by a little rock and roll...late sixties London. With 46 looks in total, the collection includes a little faux fur, Rachel's signatory jumpsuits, dresses, tailored blazers and pants, coats and my personal favourites, the sequin dresses. The collection also features Rachel's new addition to her empire.. the Rachel Zoe accessories, which includes jewellery and cold weather accessories. Amaze..
