Donatella Versace finally released her Atelier Versace Spring 2009 collection consisting of ruffled and tiered gowns and dresses. I would die for the scarlet mini dress with paillettes pictured above – brilliant.

FALL FASHION WEEK 2009: Temperely London

After showing her collection in London last season, Alice Temperley is back in NYC presenting her British-orient themed collection. You may recall I went to Temperley’s fall 2008 fashion show and instantly fell in love with her edgy approach to designer attire. Temperely’s fall 2009 collection is BY FAR MY FAVORITE show of the season..I just love everything about this mysterious eclectic fashion forward collection. Check out the making of Temperely’s fall collection here.

Fashion Week Fall 2009 - Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano, best known for winning Project Runway season 4, presented his fall collection yesterday at Bryant Park. Siriano stepped outside of the box by using shades of brown with hints of azure as the main color in the collection. Amidst a sea of black and gray designs it is a welcomed change. Signature Siriano pieces such as the multi-toned asymmetrical dress with ruffled details and skinny suit pants. I think the collection is cohesive and well made, yet it’s not one of my favorites as I had hoped.

NYC Fashion Week Fall 2009 - Joseph Altuzarra

I’m truly impressed with freshman designers Joseph Altuzarra’s debut collection at NYC Fashion week today. The pieces are artistic body hugging walking art. Altuzarra whilst only 25y/o worked briefly as a junior designer at both Marc Jacobs and Givenchy; although his style is compared to Helmut Lang or Jil Sanders.

Herve Leger Fall 2009: NYC FALL FASHION WEEK

Have you noticed all the doom-n-gloom on the runway this season?? At least Max Azria kept things lively with his signature bandage dress stepped up a notch with embellishments. My favorite dresses from the collection above and check out the runway video below.

NY FALL FASHION WEEK: Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham presented her Fall 09 collection yesterday morning in NYC at the Waldorf Towers by appointment. This line doesn’t disappoint; it’s very Victoria and timeless. The collection is a mixture of day wear, cocktail dresses and a few Oscar night worthy gowns. I can see Victoria wearing every item in this collection, starting with the adorable cropped black nylon zipper jacket with bow. I love it!
