New York Fashion Week FW12: Marchesa, Badgley Mischka, Jenny Packham

Who: Marchesa
What it made us think of: Angels battling demons to bring souls to heaven.
What we liked: Feathers, lace, embroidery, the fantasy, shoes, the fact that they even through in a couple day dresses.
Who: Badgley Mischka
What it made us think of: Silver Screen stars living in the capitol in a dystopian future lounging in their fabulous boudoirs.
What we liked: The main collection was presented with the diffusion line, Mark & James. I loved the mix of day clothes with fabulous gowns, all of which came from the same inspiration. (This is how you do a diffusion line). The mix of pajama styles with glamour was stunning as were the art deco details and metallics.
What we didn't: The hair could have been better, but it sort of worked with the mood.
Who: Jenny Packham
What it made us think of: Lauren Bacall ("You know how to whistle, don't ya, Steve? Just put your lips together and blow.")
What we liked: 1940s style, embellishments, daring V-necks, shoulders, pencil skirts
What we didn't: The mini dresses didn't fit the vibe; a couple of red satiny numbers felt like obligatory red carpet creations instead of part of the collection
