Tonight, I attended a runway show for Couture Fashion Week at the Waldorf Astoria. This show appeared to be much different than the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week shows... There were no assigned seats and as we walked in we were given a variety of options for places to sit down. I chose second row right in front of where the models did their turn around at the end of the runway. I was able to get many great pictures that were upclose and encompassed the model's sultry attitude. The first designer was for men's clothes and all the models appeared very serious until the last one came out an did a little dance which really riled up the crowd. It was an African American designer which also reflected in the color of the models. The carmel colored models strutted their stuff down the runways with so much attitude I almost forgot to look at what they were wearing because their body language was so entertaining. Most of the outfits incorporated some sort of feather hoodie, ranging in colors from bright red to off-white.
The second designer looked as if they were trying to appeal to a crowd about to go prom dress shopping. The long pastel colored dresses seemed as if they would be perfect for a formal high school dance. The shoes were sequined and drew a lot of attention to them (i was in love).
The last designer had a very gold color scheme going on. The models came out dressed in skimpy gold numbers that turned heads. The messy pigtails on all the girls definitely added to the look (most likely a new hairstyle for the upcoming season). There was what seemed to be an "Amazon Nile" look going on.
The show was definitely very exciting and afterwards there was time to take pictures with all the models!
