You’ve seen my runway reviews before, but this one is one of my favorites! I had the pleasure of seeing the GEORGINE Spring/Summer 2017 line in person at Skylight Clarkson Square last week. The show was part of the official New York Fashion Week lineup, so you know there were plenty of security, a Fashion GPS ticket and a handful of celebrities slipping in and out. On the way in, I saw Karlie Kloss (who is even more gorgeou in person!) getting into her car and almost ran into Jason Wu on the way out. Just thinking about it gets me excited all over again!
For those of you who don’t know, GEORGINE is a luxury women’s fashion brand started by designer Georgine Ratelband and Chris Roshia (her partner) back in 2012. According to the site, each collection is meant to reflect “the power of femininity through seductive silhouettes, [that are] enhanced by intricate detailing and extraordinary fabrics.” Its NYFW debut in Fall 2014 was just that with a fun mix of classic silhouettes and edgy details.
The most recent collection followed syit with the twist of exposed midriffs, statement-making materials and intricate details that turned basics into extraordinary pieces. There was a dress with a spiderweb detail, metallic coats and bold red check prints all tied together with choppy, short haircuts and red lipstick. Picture the coolest, rocker chick you can think of, who also has incredible style. Every model wearing this rebel-meets-luxury collection looked like just that.
Here’s a snapshot of the fashion line:
Yes, I’m still a little baffled by the Fred Flintstone-like coat. But the rest was simply gorgeous in-person. I saw it all while sitting alongside bloggers, designers and more impeccably-dressed persons.
