Couture Fashion Week – Autumn Lin Design Fall/ Winter 2011 – As the models walked down the runway of the Autumn Lin show, I felt as if I was watching warriors march toward an epic battle between darkness and lightness. Autmn’s “merging of the art of surface design with structured fashion architecture” was apparent in the stiff, armor like metallic silver material that curved around necks, shoulders, and backs. Plumage was plentiful and added romance to soft updos. One of my favorite looks was a dramatic all white ensemble with the model wearing a sheer white dress and white fur coat with feather collar. Although these outfits are definitely not for everyday wear, I loved the show and look forward to seeing more of Autumn Lin sculptural pieces.
