For Fall 2010, Jason Wu showcased an amazing collection that had a menswear inspired theme running across it. It wasn’t the usual princess dresses that we have grown acustomed to seeing at his shows and he clearly was trying to demonstrate that he has a lot more to offer the industry with this collection which had a bit of everything.
Aside from the menswear inspired outerwear looks which were mainly centred and inspired by the late photographer Irving Penn, we were also very drown to the dresses. Penn was also Wu’s muse this season and his photograph’s were used as an influence on some of Wu’s dresses for the collection; this was quite evident in the black and white bubble dress with a cigarette-burn print that appeared as polka dots from a distance. The men’s oversized blazer over a dress was also a nice touch and it highlighted the thought process that had gone into the making of this collection.
A few of our favourite dresses were the off-the-shoulder with pheasant feathers in-between the layers of tulle, the satin dresses with the gold leafing and a plume-print silk tulle strapless number. We would have prefered a less colourful runway though because we felt it clashed with Wu’s palette but overall it was a job well done for a collection that had so many wearable pieces.

One of the most eagerly awaited shows at New York Fashion week was Alexander Wang which took place yesterday. Wang showed his Fall 2010 collection with the main lady U.S Vogue editor Anna Wintour taking her seat in the front row amongst celebrities, journalists and buyers. The collection followed Wang’s usual cut out detailing but with a more sophisticated look this time around which suited the Fall season better. Layering was one of the main focuses of the show with the looks structured and detailed. There was various textures such as wool, mohair and mink in the collection and we truly loved the thigh high Chenille’s. Wang did not disappoint on his collection yesterday and today we are looking forward to seeing the Victoria Beckham show and Herve Leger by Max Azria which we shall be reporting back to you on!
