Jenny Packham’s screen sirens at New York Fashion Week Fall 2012
If you’re a fan of old Hollywood, Jenny Packham‘s Autumn / Winter collection will be proper up your street. The designer was inspired by 1940s screen sirens with her gorgeous collection of gowns and cocktail dresses.
Bias cuts featured heavily but the shoulder was the actual erogenous zone, with 1-shoulder gowns, sharp 1940s silhouettes and delicate ruffles on red satin. This is occasionwear at it is very best the models were noir femme fatales, but adequate of the clothing was soft enough to operate for fans like the Kates (Middleton and Winslet) as well as clientele with a sexier appear, like Dita Von Teese (who sat in the front row) and Angelina Jolie.
Speaking of Angie, there were a plethora of gowns we could picture her wearing to the Oscars later this month, but maybe most likely were the sharp-shouldered black numbers one particular in wet-appear sequins with gold embellished shoulders, the other a far more romantic mermaid gown with a suit-like best half.
Flashes of red, pink and infant blue punctuated the black, white, cream and gold colour scheme, and maybe the most dramatic use of colour was in the dramatic one-sleeved gown of glittering, jewelled ruby red with panelled sections.
