I like the use of video to showcase this designer’s products and style. These little vignettes certainly want to make you find out more about them. Gilt Groupe has some great marketing ideas to promote not-so-well-known designers. In any case, it’s all about sales and Gilt Groupe has some great sales!

Young, feminine, flirty, and very Gossip Girl!

Zac was back with his Spring 2009 collection that showed his range, versatility, and top-notch tailoring. He mixed couture gowns with bathing suits, cocktail dresses with pant suits. Some silhouettes were sheer and very body hugging, while layered fabric on some pieces created a beautiful doll-like effect. They were gorgeous – perhaps some of my favorite pieces of the collection. I liked how the designer switched between the form-fitting silhouettes and the forthy, layered look. He certainly has a lot of imagination. I loved the pieces in the collection that channeled Alice in Wonderland meets Gossip Girl. It just had this feminine whimsy to it. I loved the costume turkey dress at the end, with its huge pink, white, and black flounce. It added the right tone of fun, drama, and panache to the collection.

I also enjoyed the live interview that Zac gave to the very charming Andrew Leon Talley on the runway after the show. It gave us insights into the mind of this wunderkind. Can’t wait to attend his next show.

I was at Carolina Herrera. It was packed, and I was way up in the boondocks – amazed I saw anything at all but very happy to be part of the experience. There were lots of ruffles, lots of frills, and very, very elegant clothes from this fashion doyenne. My little N75 was not quite up to the video task, but it took video and sound that really showed how packed the place was.

The colors started out Spanish red, and that Latin theme carried through the show. Ruffles across bare shoulders, embellishing necklines, trailing from hems – they added accents to body-hugging gowns, tops, and skirts. Reds changed to a whole spectrum of colors; my favorites were the saffron yellow pieces and this black evening gown that screamed RED CARPET!. We will definitely be seeing Carolina Herrera come Oscar season, if not sooner!
