Styleweek Providence Autumn/Winter 2012
Styleweek Providence just finished up the last week of January and as usual, was amazing. You know how much I love my fashion shows! Can’t.get.enough!
While I had hoped to see what might be trending for spring, this was the autumn/winter 2012 collection. Over the summer I posted after each night, but this time around I live tweeted so I thought you all might just like to see a recap of what I liked best. (Which by the way I saw about 14 runway shows over the week and its so hard to choose from everything!)
Jess Abernethy opened the week with Alpine Dream. Lots of shearing on the sleeves, mixing of prints (think flowers on top and small dots on the bottom… things you would not think of putting together) and all flushed looking cheeks. Get out the blush girls!
Maria Del Carmen Mercado showed how black is timeless and always in, especially when paired with lace. This? Was beautiful!
Sara Derfus had creative textured dresses like this
And used some great blue accents to make other bright colors really pop.
Karen Sabag showed us that feathers are not only in for your hair or earrings (which I have only just got on board with the feathered earring trend… the little 80′s child in me fought it for awhile)… but they can be applied to clothes to the waistline and even in some cases the neck.
This dress was GORGEOUS!
She also included some beautiful wedding dresses at the end of the show. Getting married ladies? I would definitely check out her designs if I was doing it all over again myself. Or maybe a vow renewal. Hmmm…
I was in love with Toni Lyn Spaziano‘s Chances R Designs line. It felt very 60′s inspired… Pan Am sophisticated is how I would describe it. Beautiful.
I was also fascinated by Karla Marie‘s Gorgeous Khaos line. Think shiny, sparkles… lots of pale blue colors. Bubble skirts with pockets!
Sarah Prost had some really cute skirts and dresses I could see myself wearing. I loved her line last time too. She makes gorgeous stuff!
And this time around she added a menswear line as well!
Lastly I would say all of Peach Carr‘s fashions are always in. The former athlete in me is in love with her designs every time. Chic tennis outfits that are made not only to dazzle on the court, but then head for a night out without needing to change anything but your sneakers… to high heels. How cute is that!
I have to say it made the old field hockey player in me long to have had something that cool to play in, never mind hit the town in later on!
All in all amazing shows! I am already looking forward to September when the next collections are shown.
