and now I’m sharing pics from my top three fave shows. Here are some rad
up-and-coming designers you should def keep an eye out for…
you saw my roundup of
1. Noon by Noor
Noor always tops my list every season. Elegant, chic, sophisticated and
ready-to-wear. There are designers who feature only couture in a collection,
which is nothing short of fabulous, but what’s so great about a line that
nobody can actually wear off the runway? Noon by Noor features Met
Ball-appropriate designs but always includes versatile pieces like fitted blazers,
trousers and (this season) adorable knit beanies! My ideal piece is this red
dress featured below. I love how it’s highly flattering and super glam.
2. Rafael Cennamo
my first time seeing RC in person and the presentation was incredible. One of
the most intriguing and unexpected lines this season: Reminiscent of something
Alexander McQueen would have created in his time. Golden headpieces and edgy
gowns mixed with majorly smokey eye makeup and incredible couture details.
Everything from bedazzled floor length ball gowns to spontaneous short frocks
took the stand. I can’t get over the gorgeous Saw-like headbands! Rafael Cennamo’s new line is the perfect
collection for a risk-taking gal ready to make a huge statement.
3. Christian Siriano
Held at a
large studio away from Lincoln Center, Christian designed his show with huge
chandeliers and red curtains. It was eerie but vintage. As to be expected from
the young blossoming Project Runway designer, all pieces sent down the runway
were fun, not serious. Mini leather dresses, gold sequined party frocks and
structured professional pieces like suits and blazers. I’d wear everything in
his most recent collection and wouldn’t be afraid to rock it!
