NY Fashion Week Keeps it Posh

By Manda J

New York Fashion week has begun! After looking at various designer’s lines via New York Magazine’s Fashion Show (click here to visit).  I certain lines have me lusting for certain garments. One such line is Victoria Beckham’s line. Victoria Beckham AKA Posh Spice is my favorite Spice Girl.  This is VB’s fourth season designing and she seems to have found her niche. 

Her RTW Fall 2010 dresses are very stylish chic with a twist of sass thrown in. We are so used to see the classic Grecian form of draping, but this style of draping border line absurd amount of excess fabric…but it works. An extra yard here and you have a new look. She chose to use colors ranging from black to sapphire. These don’t seem like typical fall colors, but I am happy that someone has broken up the monotony of the usual burnt orange and red.  Here are some of my favorite looks. I can see Michelle O is quite a few of these dresses with her standard cinched waist.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for spring 2010 is well underway. While I am eager to see all lines there are certain line I want to see more than others. At the top of my list are Nicole Miller, Mara Hoffman, Diane Von Furstenberg, Tracey Reese and Jason Wu. Jason Wu has received the best kind of publicity a fashion designer can only dream of.

First Lady Michelle Obama,  chose to wear his design to the inauguration ball.MichelleO With all the hype and fame surrounding him I couldn’t wait to see his RTW (Ready To Wear) spring 2010 line. 

For his spring line he elected to use gray in addition to color and   print. The bustle is one its way back in, the front and side bussle.

I could see Michelle O wearing the gray skirt with the pink stripe, at a first lady appropriate length with a crisp white blouse.  The gray jacket and the red dress has Michelle O written all over it. Both items are conservative, but contain an element that makes it fashion forward. Some of my favorite Jason Wu ensembles that Mrs. O has worn are basic colorful sheaths.  The little details like the bow on the blue sheath add a young fresh feel to a conservative sheath.
