Oscar de La Renta RTW Fall '09
Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a huge Oscar de La Renta fan. He's an icon to me. He's a Hispanic who worked hard to be recognized in the industry and he's one of the few who still actually sketches his own designs. I loved his Ready To Wear Fall 2009 collection, it reminded me of old classic movies. None of the dresses were short and there wasn't that much skin being revealed. I loved seeing the new textures used for this collection, the bubble skirts, the pleats, and full sleeves on the arms. I really liked the tights with the dresses because that's always in for a day and night look. He combined the colors so nicely! I really love how he's able to emphasize a woman's body so perfectly. I know models do not have much of a shape but I can see his clothing on a woman with curves and it'll look amazing! I love the big hair on the models, it makes it look very modern. I love it all. I hope one day I'll be able to attend one of his fashion shows and have an actual conversation with him!
Ricardo, can you please make it happen?
