We interviewed Ohne Titel designers Alexa Adams and Flora Gill at the 2010 New York Fall Fashion Week. Their new collection is influenced by Victorian silhouettes and Old World techniques but with a harder edge - creating modern shapes and textures with mixed mesh and a more athletic form. Think 19th century shape but sleek and easy to wear.
Spotted: The City's Whitney Port supporting the lovely Rachel Roy at her show during New York Fall Fashion Week. Whitney talks to us about being a young designer and what she looks for in her own collection: wearable, glamorous pieces with a rock 'n roll vibe and a touch of sophistication that can take you from day to night.
Behind the scenes with Rachel Roy, she shares with us the image of the ideal modern woman she designs for. The 2010 Fall Fashion Week collection of timeless pieces and opulent richness is expressed through delicate embroidery and designs inspired by Cleopatra. The take-away trend from Rachel Roy: less is more!
Diane von Furstenberg takes a moment to talk about textures and trends on the Fall 2010 catwalk. The new collection is inspired by the current runway trend of menswear tailoring but is counterbalanced by super feminine pieces. Moving beyond her signature prints, her show at New York Fashion Week was just a taste of her most ladylike line to date.
Highlights from the Diane von Furstenberg runway at the Fall 2010 New York Fashion Week. A bit of disco, retro flair with pop colors, prints, and bright floral chiffon. Gold lamé was all over the collection - from vests to mini-dresses. The collection also included an embellished variation of her famous wrap dress with sparkles and ruffled tiers.
Fashion’s hottest newcomer and Fashion Week first-timer Prabal Gurung had his work cut out for him with Anna Wintour, Zoe Saldana, and Rachel Zoe all sitting front row. Prabal took us from architectural, color-blocked coats to stunning cocktail dresses with puff shoulders and backless gowns with cascading ruffles. Oh la la!
Lela Rose didn’t disappoint with her unusual mix of colors (from creamy neutrals to acid green and royal blue) to her sequined glittering minidresses and one-shouldered numbers. There were some 1960’s, shift-style dresses, and graphic prints, but overall Lela’s show was sophisticated and modern.
We chatted up Ports 1961's Tia Cibani to hear her take on the Fall 2010 collection. Expect to see clean silhouettes, cool jewel tones, and overall rich, dark, harmonious shades. Come Fall, Ports 1961 will rely on textured fabrics for emphasis and lean towards a more subdued color trend.
The Ohne Titel Fall 2010 runway bravely combined textures and fabrics like mesh netting, velvet, fox hair, wools and knits -- and pulled it all together into a beautiful, wearable collection. Massive leather belts at the waist, shearling moto jackets, and menswear trousers are just a few of the runway trends. Stay tuned for FabTV's exclusive interview with Ohne Titel's hot designer duo, Alexa Adams and Flora Gill!
