I was watching an old episode of fashion file the other day and they were showing Zac Posen's Spring 2008 collection. I fell in love all over again and wanted to go back in time. Also I've been in Winnipeg all weekend (which has been fantastic) and it was plus 9 today! So lovely in fact that my mom and I opened the sunroof in her car and cranked the tunage. Photos of the weekend to come soon...

A few things came to mind whilst viewing McQueen's fall line: hounds-tooth, garbage bags, praying mantas, Harlequin, club kids, snakes, space, cars, diapers on head, beetle juice, insects- either way I was FREAKED out. The show visually blew my mind but I was genuinely scared. Alexander McQueen is a genius though. Genius I say!
On another note here are a few designs I've been working on. The dress is just the test copy out of muslin and I'm currently in the process of making the real one. The collar can be laid flat to not look so extreme but I think this looks pretty neat to. The top is a more casual version of the dress I made just to wear out and about. I love them 90 degree shoulders.

I'm just gonna guess I'm not the first one to use that clever title but Stella McCartney tore up the catwalk with her fall 2009 RTW collection, which debuted in Paris yesterday. The collection was classic McCartney with her beautifully structured and tailored garments and those to-die-for boyfriend blazers. I'm particularly obsessed with the leather boot legging combos, Egyptian detailed pants, and the blazer/jacket with the lapel going allllll the way down to the hem. Jeez those McCartney's are a talented father/daughter duo...
