Vivienne Tam’s Fall 2009 presentation on Wednesday evening at Tam’s Soho boutique, was presented in the same way as the Marchesa presentation, which I had attended earlier in the day.
Marchesa’s was one hour, whereas Vivienne Tam’s was a two hour presentation. As much as this is a much more enjoyable way to view collections, it’s hell for the poor models, who have to stand in heels for two hours. I could see them slipping out one heel at a time, to ease the pressure.
The colour palette of the collection included rich jewel tones of magenta, crimson and eggplant, other colours include grey, black, teal, green and orange.
The designer presented cocktail dresses, skirts, blouses, coats and skirt suits, with an East meets West theme, which was artfully created with mandarin collars, chiffon cut outs and appliquÃ© pieces.
I loved the colours and the elegant styles.
Model Irina Pantaeva was there wearing the gorgeous Vivienne Tam embroidered dress she had worn earlier in the week.
I took this snap of former America’s Next Top Model winner Whitney Thompson, as she was being interviewed. She came with friends, and happily posed for pictures with anyone who would ask.
