Haider Ackermann Spring 2012

 

It’s hard to think just how fast the world of fashion moves. Always changing, always evolving and always creating, yet we only “recycle” the styles and trends from times past. However, there are few designers who create their own style and specific look, and achieve in creating something new each and every season. One designer who has accomplished this many times over, is Mr. Haider Ackermann. His collections are always among my favorite during the Parisian showings, and the above photo is one of the reasons why. This collection he played with a new silhouette and proportion that I quite frankly, fainted over. Blending Menswear inspired pieces with the softness of chiffon and silk, he created a beautiful balance which was almost Zen like. I also love his use of color and tailoring, which was a major step up from seasons past. All in all, Haider was may favorite of the Women’s collections, however I did pick out my favorite looks from some of the collections shown this season. Enjoy!

Today was the day I put all my work aside and visited the F.I.T Museum exhibit of the fashion icon Daphne Guinness. It was extremely difficult to get a photo of anything (annoying security guards) but I did manage to get this one. Its a one of the last pieces the late Alexander McQueen designed and it was made just for Daphne. A crystal, form fitting cat suit with a black feather floor length cape. My heart must have skipped a beat when I turned the corner to look at it. It was like looking at the woman, I actually could see her wearing this. The whole exhibition was a phenomenal experience that I will never forget and will always cherish.

Everyone go out and check out the exhibition at the F.I.T Museum.
