New York Fashion Week...Victoria Beckham matures as designer! Olivier Theysken wows!









"I really feel this season that I have grown and evolved as a designer and as a person," Victoria Beckham elaborated to the fashion press when her fall line was unveiled at the oh-so-trendy runway shows at New York Fashion Week.

In contrast to the past seasons - where Beckham was inclined to tout skintight ensembles that screamed out sex and the body politic - the big focus tended to be on versatile outfits that allowed for personal style to raise its pretty head.

For example, one model strutted down the runway in a loose magenta crepe dress with a hood which could be worn up or down loosely for a dash of individual flair.

But, designer offerings that followed displayed a lot more "wow" factor, for enthusiastic buyers.

Two-tone draped cashmere dresses caused fashionistas to sit up and take notice, for example.

Meanwhile, designers like Olivier Theysken, were doing about-faces that surprised the packed houses.

Indeed, fashion savvy women inched forward in their seats to get an up-close look at outfits which featured attractive boot-cut corduroy jeans, if you can believe it!

In addition, the quirky designer's focus was on floor-sweeping linen coats, which were tossed over sheer tops and paired with short-short denims that exposed a lot of precious leg.

Cable-knit sweaters, long military coats, and pants signalled a departure for women come fall!

Elsewhere - right-on-the-money designers - introduced rich collections which featured eye-catching fringe flourishes, pleats, capes, and printed pants even!

Gals with high-style and big bucks will be tripping-the-light-fantastic come September as they break free from the doldrums that tough economic times imposed the past season or two in fashion circles around the country.

Later!
