Monique Lhuillier: NY Fashion Week Fall 2010

February 26, 2010

“For Fall, I drew inspiration From Chinese Warrior and military suits.  Strong silhouettes with a tough, chic edge.  Long sleeves, high necks, strong shoulders with short skirts.  Lots of leg… they look almost soldier like.  I’m ready for Fall!”

Monique-Lhuillier

Monday, February 15th, I attended the Monique Lhuillier Fall 2010 fashion show held in the Promenade tent.  Monique was introduced to the world of glamour and fashion at a young age when her family traveled extensively. She left home at age 15 to pursue her dream of working in the world of fashion. She is best known for her bridal and evening wear but this season opened with jacquard, lacquered matelassé and wool crepe short dresses and skirts. Crimson reds, dragon printed jacquards and velvet gave the collection a feminine edge

There was a refined business power suit made of black and white tweed with frayed tulle detail.  She also showed a beautiful Crimson jacquard strapless dress with a gold leather chain bolero.  This look was simple and yet exuded elegance.

As the show progressed the hemlines dropped to floor length.  Her soldier effect transitioned to soft and flowing gowns.  There were one shoulder chiffon gowns, asymmetrically draped gowns and a stunning form fitting black sequin long sleeve cheongsam column gown that would be appropriate for both young and old.

The final look was a Shanghai red duchesse draped gown with a floral skirt. The shoes were Bruno Frisoni and jewelry was designed by Tony Duquette sold in Saks Fifth Avenue.

This CFDA designer showed us what she does best:  High Drama.

The one shoulder gown that is featured on the Dec2010 issue of Flare Canada is stunning. Is there a store carrying it in Toronto? It was featured at the ny fashion week Feb 15th. Thanks Cathy Goodale, Oakville Ont Canada.
