New York City is arguably the fashion capital of the United States and the entire world. This season we are looking forward to attend many leading designer’s Fashion Shows that are taking places all over the city. And the hottest two spots for them are in Lincoln Center (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) and the historic Garment District near Bryant Park.
Irina Shebayeva made FW 2011 her debut last night in the Garment District. Inspiring is the first word that comes to mind. She used the concept of “modern warrior women in New York City” to express her vision. Her vision rings very true nowadays; this is the 21st century where the women have to be pretty tough and strong emotionally to rule this world.
Irina used a cold palette in her collection, the white, black and gray colors dominated. Plus the the outfits were highly accessorized for true runway drama. There were also at least five different fabrications integrated into one outfit. She featured a lot of feather, leather and fur, which made the collection seem warm. The whole collection was very creative. The young designer applied “Birds” wings” silhouettes into her collection, so the audience had image of flying birds on the runway. It was very tactile and I fully appreciate the innovative thought processes that went into each creation. Irina Shebayeva’s entire collection was received as a great success and we are very much looking forward to the next one.
