I was excited to receive my invitation to the Michael Kors Spring 2010 show the night before the show.

I was even more excited when I arrived to see my seat assignment with name on it, plus a bottle of ‘Very Hollywood’ by Michael Kors perfume.

The show notes indicated that there would be 64 looks so I knew I would be in for a treat.

The collection was perfect for the chic uptown New Yorker, with its sleek architectural shapes and asymmetry.

The colour palette was a beautiful mix of white, black, blue, grey, silver, pink, blue, lilac and pistachio.

The collection included oversized cashmere cardigans and sweaters, some with only one sleeve and others with cut-outs. The cashmere pieces were paired with skirts.

Zips added toughness to looks, as did defined shoulders.

There were many cut-outs on pieces and some were filled in with perspex. This was added to the sides of a black swimsuit, across dresses and shoes to give the spring looks a bit of a ’60s vibe.

Sequins covered evening cocktail dress, which would be a perfect alternative to a gown on the red carpet.
