Fashion Show (Part One)
This past weekend, I attended the West 18th Street Fashion Show with Kerrie and Meredith.
The show featured the work of local fashion designers, some still in school, others with their own boutiques and collections.
It was a fun!
Here were some pieces that stuck out to me.
My terrible photo does not do this gown justice. The shimmering silk gray material flowed perfectly with the model's pearl necklaces. It was very glamorous.
This shiny material rippled like water. I wanted to reach out and touch it.
I could easily see this dress floating on a red carpet somewhere, draping a Hollywood star.
So. Freaking. Adorable.
I loved this designer's use of colors.
I was really struck by the swimsuit on the left.
The men's bathing suits were just as fabulous.
An outfit made out of trash.
Like something out of a bad dream.
This outfit was made out of nightmares. Or so I imagine.
Overall, the show was fabulous. Thousands of people showed up, so my friends and I were lucky to find good standing positions.
I'm sorry the photos are not very good. My camera was not designed to capture people walking at high speeds down a runway, unfortunately.
I highly suggest you all get to know the local designers in your city. There is so much talent, just waiting to be discovered right under your nose.
You never know--the next Alexander McQueen could have a boutique two blocks away from you!
