I must say I really enjoyed myself at FFF Week. The weekend is kind of a blur with me darting to get to this event and that event, that I really didnt get to go to every event I wanted to. This is a recap the designers I really like at the event. For me a runway show is about the clothes, potential pieces that I can buy, or recommend to clients. So I happy to see a lot of different styles represented on the runway. In the mini slideshow/movie I put in my favorite designers and my favorite looks from them.
In the order on the slideshow:
Susan Moses: This designer was my absolute favorite at FFF Week. I want to know where I can buy!!! The delivery of the pieces was flawless with clean lines, immaculate details, and innovative design. Although I have seen this style before offered in plus, I have not seen it executed to this standard, with just the extreme attention to detail in this dark and edgy style. And the structure of the clothing was a force to be reckoned with. I was impressed. Susan Moses really took this look to the next level.
Monif C - Her collection consisted of some things that I had already seen with some pieces that I haven't. Monif C is definitely staking her claim in swimsuits in plus sizes. Monif C actually made a bikini that works for the plus size body that actually looks good. With a little thinking outside the box, Monif C has made the bottom and top to cover the right areas and the let the areas that work best for the curvy girl show. I must say kudos to Monif C for her innovation the swimsuit area.
Igigi - Again this collection of mostly of pieces that had been on the Igigi website for months at this point. I did like the fact that Igigi's collection really told a story. The story was called "A walk in Paris." With great styling Igigi really gave you the feeling of being in Paris. She did show one piece that I had not seen before. It was a gorgeous wedding dress (which is not on the website). The dress made me want to buy for my own wedding.
Jewel Shannon - This collection consisted of resort pieces. This designer mixed swimsuit material with glamour and luxury. I pieces from this collection, because I love luxury and the swimsuits and coverup just looked so expensive. Ladies no swimming in these suits...LOL
