Last February 11, Rebecca Taylor made her masterpieces from her Fall 2011 RTW collection come to life at the New York fashion week. I am just so glad that she was able to brandish a 40-piece for this collection and guess what? They are all wearable and not just a just-for-runway showcase.
Well, ladies who love indulging themselves to their femininity would love this collection. I bet she was thinking of an elegant and stylish young lady while designing the collection as she said “…inspired by dreamy illusive paintings, blurred images and sparkling lights, conjuring images of dimly lit nights in the chic Parisian night clubs of the 70’s.”
Taylor did a collage-like patching of fabrics—so you can imagine a harmony of printed silks and laces, embellished knits, pleats, faux furs, and lots of sparkly add-ons. She used maroon, smoky gray, cobalt blue and magenta to complete the magnificent looks. They may seem to be over-the top but they’re really not.
One thing Taylor did which I loved is using fabrics from the past season. She was not fearful in using what others might think as “so last season” and with her talent and vision, she was able to produce a very fresh and different look for 2011 Fall NYFW. I also think she deserves to be given an award from environmentalist groups for conserving and re-using resources.
Rebecca Taylor surely knows how to make a girl happy.
