New York Fashion Week A/W 2010/11 Ready to Wear #2 - Carolina Herrera & Marchesa

It was nice to see some colour on the runways at New York's ready to wear parades. Of course black was back (again!) but this time vibrant reds, soft blues and colourful patterns offered some respite from the cold New York weather. Carolina Herrera, the queen of the classic and stylish ballgown and the designer favoured by Renee Zellweger, chose billowing ruffles, simple necklines and slightly shorter hems. If splurging on a pair of knockout heels for your big day it might be worth looking into a shorter hem. Afterall, where's the fun in wearing amazing shoes if no one can see them??! Marchesa opted for soft, flowy gowns with intricate bust and waist detailing. Soft blue's, pinks and silvers were the ultimate reason to opt out of white for your wedding. In such soft shades they were oh-so romantic and oozed femininity. Marchesa's trademark full, pleated and rouched gown was shotened to create a more fun a flirty piece, while mimi's with long, sheer skirts added sexiness. Definitely two of my favourite shows!
