runway New York


As a writer and fashionista, observing the trends every season has become my everyday muse. This season I was amazed by the wonderful Marchesa Autumn/Winter 16 show in Moynihan Station. Georgina and Keren transformed the show into a magical play in a way that other designers had never done before. The colors, the flowers, the blink, and the blitz formed a sense of harmony that gave me a little taste of heaven in ten minutes. How are these pink and lime green floral prints present in an Autumn/Winter collection? Shouldn’t there be earthy color tones present during the fall? Unlike most shows, the collections are very non-uniform; black, bright red, cotton candy pink, and baby blue all jump into the show, why so?

Ladies should be fashionable, not season-able. Being fashionable does not necessarily mean you have to follow the seasons. Marchesa is successful in portraying a fashion liberty through its

Autumn/Winter 16. It provides a wide range of color, fabric, and dress type that can represent your mood and your identity any time of the year. The collections vary from a fantastic red dress for the Met Gala to a simple black gown that can be worn for almost every occasion.

Under the wing of luxury fashion; lace, crystals, pattern, and prints are highly sought after by many fashionistas. Same thing goes for color. Having color combinations that can accommodate all needs and wants is ideal. Georgina and Keren pay special attention to the details of their dresses. Their ensembles consisted of a baby pink dress emblazoned with lime green Swarovski crystals while simple was turned sophisticated with a red dress fully made up of satin flowers and tulle. The show was blatant in showing variations, unlike other shows.

All in all, why cross out floral in autumn? Why abolish certain colors during a certain season? Why blend in when you can stand out?
