since fashion week has started, i’m sure you’ve seen some sneak peeks of what i’ve been up to on tumblr, twitter, and instagram. but today i’m excited to begin sharing some of the photos i’ve been taking at the shows. one of my favorites so far was the jill stuart spring 2012 show. after having been mildly obsessed with the fall and resort collections, i was a little concerned that i’d built up the spring show too much in my mind. but once i saw the first look walk down the runway (see: the nude and red palm tree dress with a pleated and scalloped hem) i knew i was in for a treat. i loved the sort of art deco floridian theme with the palm tree motif and excellent colors. the pink and green in particular reminded me of the colors you might see in my great aunt’s bathroom, and i mean that in the best way possible. but besides the show-stopping colors, i loved the quilted jackets, which reminded me of glamorous vintage sleepwear, and i even caught a glimpse of what looked like little retro faces on the print of a dress. and of course, the gold details on the shoes and the perfectly messy side swept hair completed the looks. another collection well-done that i will be turning to for inspiration for months to come!
all photos were taken by me.
