New York Fashion Week, Fall 2008: Lela Rose

It was sheer madness at Lela Rose. Girlie blouses, and sleeves and necklines of dresses were see-through for subtle sexiness.

But that's not even half of what Rose offered up. You name it, this collection had: colored anoraks, metallic tulip skirts, sequin tops and skirts, wide-leg pants, skinny pants, and dresses galore: tiered, taffeta, one-shoulder, chiffon, and one ruffled garnet colored dress that looked slightly Lanvin. That means we're closer to being able to afford the dramatic party frocks we all loved for Spring.

Hallelujah for some color on the catwalk. Teal, mustard, red, metallic blue and burgundy all had their place in the show. Rose always manages to create uptown pieces that are far from stuffy and she's accomplished this yet again.
