I attended the runway show of GEORGINE, a New York-based brand which was started by a very young and talented young woman. This young woman has an impressive track record and she is already showing at New York Fashion Week at the age of 24. Impressive!
Georgine graduated from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan in June of 2011, just after her thesis collection was purchased by a prestigious boutique in Antwerp, Belgium. This auspicious beginning encouraged her to start her own label. And she has showed at New York Fashion Week for now 3 seasons.
Her clothes are very feminine and playful in a sophisticated and classic way. The colors are fun yet the shapes and styles are classic and modern. It is clothing that would make any woman feel good to wear which is also her goal with her collections. Her motto is that her clothes should looks as beautiful from the inside as it is on the outside.
Her new collection is no exception to her concept. It is a mix of 50s and 90s inspired designs: flowing and feminine. The clothes is sexy and plays to the feminine shapes but it is done in an impeccable way which is classic. The use of silk and lame takes the collection to another level and makes the collection sexy without being vulgar. The colors are playful but on trend with the colors for fall – aubergine, geen, and gold. Now we know what colors we should be on the lookout for during the fall.
For such a young woman she has a very strong esthetic and you are not in doubt about who the designer is when you see the clothing. It is no surprise that people like Kelly Rutherford, Kelly Bensimore, Derek Warburton, LuAnn de Lesseps, Diana Madison, Kristen Taekman, Mim Nervo, Liv Nervo, Rachel Brosnahan and DJ Helena defied the snow and attended the runway show of GEORGINE.
