I would like to be there, to see this great Show live, but our dreams offen coming not true…
The journalist who was there wrote about :
The New York skyline at night seductively shimmered and glistened as the background of today’s Donna Karan show. Donna has been dressing her New York woman for three decades now, compulsively so, and at a time when other designers are thinking globally you get the sense that for Donna it’s all about this city. Where else? She might travel and pick up treasures from around the world but she always comes home. So, today she went about dressing her from day into night, mirroring the city’s night colours – black, midnight blue, asphalt grey and glimmering gold.
Her proposed silhouette was long and layered but emphasised the waist by cinching it in with leather and obi belts as in a silk and metallic brocade tuxedo jacket over a crisp white shirt and a ribbon striped chiffon skirt. The most interesting suggestion was a multi-layered bustier (flannel, pinstripes, brocade and tulle) worn long over roomy trousers. If it sounds fussy it wasn’t. An alternative version had a cropped charcoal knit over handkerchief folds and a skirt with a high slit revealing a chiffon layer, but guess what? It was one piece, a dress. Feathers were embroidered on tailored coats, shirt and dress sleeves were billowing and an auburn leather aviator shearling jacket looked great over a pinstripe skirt as did a bronze waxed trench coat belted over a bodysuit. The embroidered organza dresses were dreamy and the image of a burnished gold lamé and felt tulle gown against that city backdrop was pretty unforgettable. Just like its City.
