Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Day 3 (September 11)

First of all, I’m sorry for the delay in making my review at the collections that have and are being presented in New York. This week and the last one have been very important in my journey to find a job. That said, let me show you how the day 3 went.

Z Spoke by Zac Posen

What stood out the most in this show where the colorful patterns and the unexpected cuts in dresses. Warms colors, reds, mustard yellow and cyan filled suits and dresses. The make up and hairstyle gave the models a super cool look.

Cynthia Rowley

To me, this was the most disappointing show. The color palette was a bit boring: black, white, gray and a few pastels that weren’t enough to make the cut out bobbles more fun. The bubble-shaped embellishments  in skirts, dresses and coats made the collection seem coherent, but repetitive.  The retro look and ladylike silhouettes were the only thing to retain.

Jill Stuart

Champagne, black and white used in a graphic way reigned in this collection. Ruffles, lace and pleads completed the romantic mood of the clothes. The pieces had a large symmetry.

Love the shorts.

Prabal Gurung

Prabal’s show started with color blocking looks and ended up with embellished cocktail and bridal dresses. I love the color splash in the blouse of the 3rd pic. Then the blue and orange made way to black and white dresses and the opaque managed to leave room for sheer.

Geometric shapes seem to have inspired the designer, who reinvented them, whether in dresses and suits.

Vivienne Tam

An unlikely mix of denim and lace characterized this show.

The bohemian style that marked the whole collection was represented whether in prints, shapes and little details like bags, giving the collection a very casual style. You feel like it’s something you can wear to go to the beach, contrary to other collections, but I felt the lack of glamour pieces.


To retain:

– colors: white, black and mustard yellow
