Farah Angsana definitely knows how to put on a show. Her collection was inspired by women like herself who love to travel the world. Her collection shows that “she is a woman of high glamour and culture and appreciates the fine detailing in luxury.” If I could describe the collection in one word it would be luxurious. The collection consisted of breath taking gown and cocktail dresses that would definitely make you the center of attention. She chose simple colors like ivory and black for some pieces but the show stoppers would have to be the tangerines, emerald greens, scarlet reds, violets and shades of blue. When you put some color in to the mix you are bound to have an incredible collection. The fabrics and details were just as luxurious as the rich colors. She incorporated crystal and sequin emebellishments, lace detailing, ruching, silk chiffon, silk wool, wool crepe and more. Her silhouettes were simple but the true craftsmanship can be seen in the detail. Take a look at the collection.

 This dress was definitely the show stopper. Everyone gasped as the model proceeded to walk down the runway. The dress is so dramatic yet classy. Farah Angsana did an amazing job with this collection.

The next few collections were definitely a few of my favorite. Rag & Bone, Diesel Black Gold, and Y-3 show how you can maintain your femininity and be tough at the same time. All of their collections were stemmed on a technique that many have yet to maste: layering. The art of layering can be quite difficult, but once you learn the tricks of the trade you will be able to dress accordingly and be ready for all types of weather. Check out the collections

Rag & Bone

 Diesel Black Gold


First came into contact with Y-3 styling while doing marketing for adidas in the mid 2000’s. Very eclectic, very eccentric but more so like a journey with his styling. This years show made no attempt against this with a runway layered in Persian rugs and a collection that imagined Westerners on a stylishly rugged global trek. This collaboration from Asia’s Yohji Yamamoto & Germany’s adidas brings about a collection that takes a cues from many regions. Take a trip with the collection below.

First glance you see the accents. Leather, buttons, elbows. Stand outs have to be the coats from Pea to Military inspired. Matter of fact the whole scene was cadet based. Civilians don’t fret, motorcycle jackets came in lush bonded leathers and shearlings. Suiting seemed a little different. Quilted leather sleeves and braided trim which created divisions across the waist. Accessories pop as well with quilted leather gloves and functional bags. At ease and take a look.

It seems like Tracy Reese wanted to bring a little summer in to fall with her 2012 collection. Bright red-orange, yellow, violets and teal greens ruled the runways for Ms. Reese this season. Her collection is fun, flirty, and very modern. Filled with bright colors, intricate prints, her collection had great pieces for mixing and matching. There is something for everyone in this collection. You have the gold lame mini-skirts for the party girl, the fur trimmed coat for the sophisticated woman, and over course her printed frocks for the woman who loves all things chic. This collection is so vibrant and it is a great change from what many designers do. Tracy Reese use of color is just impeccable. She knows what colors to pair together to give the look some extra  sass.
