Louise Gray as Photographed for "Show Me Your Wardrobe"

Louise Gray, British fashion designer with eccentric and impeccable style as seen on this blog I found this morning: Show Me Your Wardrobe, which gives you a glimpse into the wardrobes of today's creative talent. I love that Gray's style 100% embodies her designs and aesthetic. Check out a couple looks from her Fall 2010 RTW collection below:

I mean, WOW, right? Who wouldn't want to be decked out head to toe in her wonderful, pattern-abundant, tactile designs?

Mary Katrantzou

My brain can still hardly process the brilliant collection of Mary Katrantzou for Spring 2011. Pure genius! I don't want to say that I'm disappointed in New York Fashion Week, but when placed against London's Fashion Week, the differences are almost too obvious not to state. London is just so progressive..and daring! 

For example,  Mary Katrantzou's collection- yes, digital prints have been done before, but she pulls it off with such conceptual and artistic flourish. Katrantzou's designs seem to blend together modern day minimalism while referencing Neoclassical architecture. What makes the collection even better is that it evolves within itself.

Geometry, Structure, Minimalism

What a breathtaking collection at Threeasfour. I love when designers are willing to move fashion forward and ignore all the bullshit behind forecasting, which results in designers all doing the same thing. I'm tired of draping and loosely hung clothing. I'm reading for structure again
3.1 Phillip Lim was quite magnificent as well. The clothes are much more wearable, somewhat following the lady-like trend, yet are conceptual. There was a lot of sheer fabrics, layering, and once again- structure. It almost seemed like a nod towards what Nicolas Ghesquiere is doing at Balenciaga. (All photos taken from Style.com)

Fashion's Night Out- NYC

We had a great time: hamming it up outside the Comme des Garcons store, oggling people at Balenciaga, and checking out the goodies at the Collette truck parked outside of Opening Ceremony at the Ace Hotel!
