Edition by Georges Chakra Fall 2010

I always look forward to Georges Chakra’s presentation during Fashion Week, as I expect many red carpet looks.

On this occasion the looks weren’t as dramatic as usual. It wasn’t until half way through the collection that I saw a single embellishment or sequin. So is Chakra toning down the drama?

No, because the last few gowns really had a lot of wow factor.

From the blood red gowns with thigh-high splits to the shimmering silver gowns with stunning star details cut into the back, high-end red carpet glamour is still Chakra’s focus.

I loved the back-to-front tuxedo dress, which was more sophisticated than the one Celine Dion wore the 1999 Oscars.

I’m not sure if it was because it was a Fall collection, but I was baffled by the tights paired with the thigh-high split gowns.

It wasn’t all about gowns. Cocktail dress, off-the-shoulder tops, lace pant suits and day dresses were presented in this collection.

That red dress was divine…I was just about to ask if you were having fun, and then I saw your response. I live in mid town,nyc for 6months of the year and the atmosphere is A-M-A-Z-I-N. Have a blast F.C you deserve it

    I read that Chakra was inspired in this collection by the painter Lucio Fontana, who is known for his slashed canvases which made me curious so I looked at more of the presentation and man, I really do like those gowns which have the slashes at the neckline area with netting in the opened panels; they are simple and dramatic and also, they, like many other of his gowns, look fab both coming and going, which i am starting to realize (duh, i’m slow!) is what really makes a red carpet gown memorable and stunning. I enjoyed this whole collection. Also, his use of fabrics was unique, as in some cocktail dresses made out of a double faced linen that was treated to look like a crinkled multicolored mosaic – I so envy you being able to see all those details up close as the photographs always flatten things out a bit.
