Monique Lhullier, known for her bridal wear and red carpet gowns, strayed from her usual and showed a line of sportier looks at her Spring/Summer 2012 fashion show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. “With women more into fitness and healthy lifestyles, I compliment their physique using intricate seaming to outline the body”. Body hugging gowns in cobalt blue, cadminton yellow, with color blocking and sequins along the fron and sides created a streamlined effect, reminding me of a sports car. Monique Lhullier also used leather accents for an edgy contrast with the soft chiffon gowns. The collection was very flattering and slimming, embracing the female physique.
