I was a huge fan of Fashion East’s Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear show. The subtle bright embellishments, on (generally) neutral garments was well done. For those of you who don’t know, Fashion East is a non-profit initiative, which was established by Old Truman Brewery in 2000 to help new and emerging designers through the rough early stages of their career. Each season they offer three womenswear collections and three menswear collections. These designers receive free venue, bursary, a complete catwalk show production with professional photographers and video. This women’s wear show was especially impressive. All three designer’s meshed cohesively into a single, well engineered collection. But, for fun, let’s still break them down individually. The first collection was described by the designer as a “punk mountain style look.” It was a knitwear heavy collection, and contained many Peruvian accents, such as embroidery around the neck and waist. The second collection had a Native American aura with a tailored edge. The third collection was abundant with heavy materials. The designer included shearling, fake fur, ponyskin, and thickly cabled knitwear. This collection was somewhat disappointing to me after two fabulous collections. But all together, I think this show was a winner. I picked some of my favorite looks and posted them above. Visit style.com for more.
