Carolina Herrera Fall 2009

Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2009 presentation was everything you would expect.

Glamourous, sophisticated, elegant and rich in both colour and textures.

Carolina presented many dresses, pant suits and gowns which were breathtakingly beautiful. The fabric that immediately jumped out was bronze jacquard, but lace, suede and silks were also used. The amazing mix help the clothes shimmer and sparkle, without any bling.

The room was pitch black, with only two spotlights focusing on the entering and exiting models.

They walked very fast, and for me it was very hard to digest the collection. As I was thinking “that would look great on…” then next model was whizzing by.

The collection came out in blocks of colours. First up was the copper bronzes, followed by green, taupe, black, and the rich colours of blue and violet.

The silhouette concentrated on the waist, and elongating the female form, with slim pants and narrow skirts.

The gowns were stunning. I particular liked the one that begins to flare at the knee and ends with a full, rounded, layered hem, and the blue and purple floral chiffon gown with one cold shoulder.

Here are my crappy pictures.

I did not seen any celebs, but I did see two designers. Christian Siriano and Tory Burch.

    such a beautiful collection, i never thought carolina would make a collection as “edgy” as this, it doesnt seem like the typical carolona collection.

    god christian siriano was there, oh god i cant stand that little pain on the butt.
