During New York Fashion Week I was invited to the Philosophy Fall 2010 presentation.

When I arrived at the venue where the presentation was being held Ms Ferretti was in the foyer to meet her guests.

This made it feel like she was inviting you to her home which was very special.

The collection was elegant mix of sensual femininity with masculine touches including stiff collars, thick black belts, double breasted blazers and workman style boots.

On the feminine side I loved the sensuality of the ruffles, lace, embroidery and satin ribbons.

The elegant evening gowns were embroidered with delicate sequins and some of these looks were paired with cropped sweaters or a long wool coat.

I loved the contrast of this collection which gelled so beautifully.
