Darlings, did you think we forgot about Leanne's show last week? We kept putting off the post because we wanted to do it right, that's all.
We were happy to see that she didn't just replicate her previous collection. This one showed real growth and movement away from previous work and that's not always easy to do. We liked her darker color scheme and the architectural details. It wasn't as noodle-y as previous work, but there were enough folds and pleats to make it totally Leanne.
She told us she designed and created the entire collection in 3 weeks and she was inspired by the NYC skyline. As inspiration goes, it's been done but we have to commend her for doing it in a subtle, impressionistic way. You don't look at it and think NYC skyline, but when you think NYC skyline and look at it, you can see it. Does that make sense?
We love the coat and the gowns and some of the simpler short dresses. We're not a hundred percent on that gold fabric, which looks a little heavy. We do love the purple and black, though.
Of course the place was chock full of PR alums, like Suede, Stella, Kit Pistol, Steven Rosengard, Jerrell, Korto, Jack, and Kevin Christiana, and standing around looking fabulous in the frocks were former PR models, Amanda, Nicole, and Karalyn.
