Jenny Packham Spring 2012

Jenny Packham’s Spring 2012 collection showcased signature feminine glamour during New York Fashion Week yesterday.

We saw a rainbow of beautiful colours including brightly coloured azure blues, geranium reds, sunset oranges, lemon drop yellows and citrus limes alongside bright whites.

I loved the flapper-style beaded dresses which were super chic and the bead work was outstanding.

Asymmetrical hemlines fluttered down the runway as did maxi dresses, flowing gowns and cocktail dresses.

Jenny’s celebrity fans will love the embellished tops and white lace shorts if they are looking for something other than a gown or a dress.

Christian Louboutin provided the models colourful strappy sandals and  Jenny Packham designed the jewels with Swarovski elements.

Front Rows: Mandy Moore and Shantel VanSanten

Favourites: Silk chiffon dress with organza trimmed hems and French Chantilly beaded lace tea dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Mandy Moore, Leighton Meester, Taylor Swift, Kerry Washington, Elisabeth Moss, Alice St. Clair, Reese Witherspoon, Sophia Bush, Cat Deeley, Dita von Teese, Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Nikki Reed, Anna Kendrick, Elisabeth Moss,

    What a beautiful collection! One of my favorites. The beadwork is beautiful. Mila Kunis would be stunning in this a few of these looks!

    My problem with Jenny is that her gowns look a little like high end pageant gowns. Most of these dresses look the same as every other dress she created. Very pretty but nothing amazing. And just a question, how is it that Kate Middleton has to wear brtitish designers, but Packham and McQueen are all NY based labels, and its not a problem if she wears them? If you present in NYC, you are considered an American designer by most people. Just a tought.

    When I looked up the collection, that red dress in particular made me gasp, and I don’t even like big blocks of red. The detail on the skirt is lovely.

    Totally could see Leighton Meester or Sophia Bush in the red dress.
