New York Fashion Week: Day 1 (Rachel Roy, Monique Lhuillier)


Very strong collection with beautiful cut pieces and a lovely muted color palette. I really like the sheer fabrics and the corset details. There were also some misses in this collection like the heavy looking very shiny silk dresses.


Beautifully detailed gowns, ballet inspired dresses and sheer fabrics - very unexpected from Monique Lhuillier. I always love feminine and romantic designs so this collection was very much to my liking. The detailing is wonderful and I love the shredded sheer shirts and tights worn underneath, this adds an edge and very subtle tough-ness to the otherwise so delicate look.
