Christian Siriano wasn’t the only Project Runway winner to show at New York Fashion Week yesterday.
Season 6 winner Irina Shabayeva presented her Fall 2011 collection.
As I hadn’t seen the season she won Project Runway I didn’t know what to expect, but I was very impressed at how strong the collection was.
With Spanish music playing in the background Irina transported us Barcelona with her flamenco inspired collection.
The loved the laser cut chrysanthemum flowers which boldly stood out on several pieces. This was also repeated as print motifs and cut-out appliqué motifs on wool jackets.
She presented many snug cozy cardigans, scarves and shrugs which the models wore with gowns and mini dresses.
The colour palette for this mostly evening collection consisted of bold reds, cobalt blue, shimmering golds, white and black.
Favourites: The laser cut coat and red hooded cardigan
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Sophia Bush and Kristen Bell
