This collection didn’t disappoint. So many pretty pieces. Here were our favorites.
A lot of this collection just seemed boring. Last March we styled a Fox Hunt themed shoot, so adorning a model with a tuft of fur at her neck is nothing new to us. Revisit our shoot HERE.
The few that did stand out to us are below. We loved the printed skirt and the white gown’s new use of zippered tassel placement at the elbow.
Diesel Black Gold
This collection had some pretty sweet leather pants. We’ve always been fans of a little bit of hardware. We enjoyed that the tuxedo lapel continued to be used and of course there were those rounded shoulder sweaters again.
The items that were considered to be ‘dresses’ seemed the tiniest bit short. It was slightly unflattering. The few white jackets that he sent down the runway were teetering on the edge of ‘straight jacket’ with the buckle placements. If he had added one more buckle to those jackets, we would have certainly had a problem with them.
Here were our favorites:
Jenny sent a pretty collection down the runway that we think is fairly “age versatile”. We enjoyed the colors she chose like the dusty peach, navy, and the deep red. We also enjoyed that she added a few sleeves to some of her gowns. Not all women like that part of their bodies. Jenny is very smart to have that as an option for her clients.
The elegant gowns were also paired with very pretty coats. This is a fall collection after all, and if you are going to wear a gown – more than likely it will be chilly at night.
This was a very smart collection, indeed.
She has our vote to be a future featured designer at The Swan Ball here in Nashville.
We loved the cropped white sweater paired with the long gown skirt. This was a very youthful, fun approach to ‘dressing up’.
We foresee her collections to continually improve in the future.
Lots of fun things were happening at Vera’s show. The prints were mixed well and the colors were appropriate for fall. We can’t express how much we love a good “capelet” and when it is attached to the coat, even better.
We couldn’t help but think of character John Snow’s styling from Game of Thrones on a few of the more ‘furry’ looks. Draping fur around the shoulders has of course been around since the dark ages.
We had quite a few favorites in this set.
Here they are:
