Rebecca Taylor: F/W 2011

Rebecca Taylor debuted her fall 2011 collection on February 11th, 2011 at 2pm. It was a pack house! Many celebrities including Michelle Trachtenberg and Garcelle Beauvais attended the F/W 2011 fashion show that was inspired by “dreamy illusive paintings, blurred images and sparkling lights, conjuring images of dimly lit nights in the chic Parisian night clubs of the 70’s.”

I love the feel of this collection because of the romantic in me. Patterns, Sheer, Fur/Wool  and Bright colors continue to make its impact on several collections I saw during the F/W 2011 NYFW.

The collection gave off a playful, but serious feel. Mix-Match and ruffles is also the go-to trend for the fall!

I can see a variety of women wearing several, if not all, pieces from Rebecca’s fall 2011 collection.  My favorite look from this collection is below:

Congrats to Rebecca Taylor on another timeless collection!

Bibhu Mohapatra: F/W 2011 Presentation

Bibhu Mohapatra is one up and coming designer to watch! Bibhu presented his F/W 2011 collection on February 15th, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. His designs are made for the red carpet. If you need a gown, look no further!

The collection was a very dark, seductive and mysterious one. I enjoyed viewing and admiring his pieces. Each look featured everyone’s favorite color for fall: Black.

Don’t be surprised if you see a look or three from this collection on a red-carpet near you!

I look forward to seeing more collections from this talented & prominent designer!

Elie Tahari: F/W 2011

Elie Tahari debuted his fall 2011 collection on February 16th, 2011 at 7pm. Like Bibhu Mohapatra, This collection was very dark and sassy.

It reminded me of a woman who had a good and bad side. The Bad side featured Leather jackets, sheer tops, tight pants, killer boots and leather gloves.

The good side (My favorite half of this collection) featured mid-length skirts, loose fitting trousers, trenchcoats, sweet accessories and comfortable looking heels.

Thanks to all, see you next season.
