Presenting – Oscar de la Renta

Exquisite and opulent gowns in sugar candy-pink, silver, teal and peach hues owned the runway at Oscar de la Renta’s runway show. Layers of tulle and organza formed beautiful creations fit for a princess, accessorized with satin and diamante headbands and statement jewellery.

As you can see these dramtic gowns show off the designers creative flare, taking the American idea of the classic prom dress and pushing it’s boundaries. I wouldn’t be surprised to see at least one of these dresses on the red carpet of  the up and coming Academy Awards or even the Oscar’s.

Oscar’s vision was definitely inspired by the ultimate girly girl who dreams of being swept of her feet by prince charming.

It was refreshing to see the different layers of the dress styled to alternate lengths, straying from the classic floor length or the ‘above the knee’ hemline.

Oscar catered for his wealthy clientele, the Park Avenue ladies that lunch if you will, showing off his array of daytime wear: tweed suits, shift dresses and shoulder cover ups.

I was also impressed by his efforts to aim the collection at a younger crowd through the varied hemlines, fishnet tights and chunky, glittery heels.

This ice blue colour will no doubt be a must have colour for Autumn / Winter 2012 and perfect to be mixed with winter whites and greys.

I absolutely love this short blue dress, it’s so beautiful with the tulle layers and pastel colour.

There is an underlying Sixties vibe to this collection with the shift dresses and the swept up, back combed bob’s, this has been a popular trend across the shows so far for next season.

These deep teal coloured dresses, explored different textures and showed the versatility of the collection.

These monochrome outfits with highlights of colours exposed the traditional Oscar de la Renta style, exquisite tweed skirt suits and dresses with prim knits. Always ultra feminine in style, his skirts just skim the knee and the fishnet tights modernised these traditional outfits.

For me, this is my favourite Autumn / Winter collection so far, with the fairytale element, the mix of traditional and modern trends and the pastel colours I just love it all. What do you think? XOXO
