Thinking you are done and dusted with everything chic, luxe and sexy in the fashion world? Nothing new can make you feel all agog again? The Misha Collection spring/summer 2017 runway show descended on the New York Fashion Week on Friday evening to prove you the other way round.
When the Australian-based designer Michelle Aznavorian set her foot in the fashion world back in 2013, it was more than obvious that she is persona grata in the industry. Who could guess that the young girl designing in the bedroom of her south-eastern suburban home would someday make her way through New York Fashion Week, withal so triumphantly?
Michelle Aznavorian’s great debut last year at Sydney Fashion Week with Bella Hadid opening and closing the show obviously brought her recognition leaving behind such a big league clientele as the Kardashian sisters, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez.
And yesterday again at NYFW, Michelle kept on sweeping us off feet with her sophisticated designs and scandalous cutouts, which are in no way fitted for everyday wear, but rather cut out to touch red carpet or at least some well-heeled ceremonies.
The reason behind selecting dark-skinned Jourdan Dunn to open and close the Misha Collection spring 2017 runway show was maybe to demolish all the critiques around last year’s show featuring exclusively white models. The beauty opened the show with a sexy black leather piece, somehow stuck between a dress and a coat paired with short cuff leather gloves – the whole assemblage taking Jourdan to a dangerous feline girl level.
Sophisticated leather taking shapes of either asymmetrical dresses or strapless tops was soon to be replaced by hedonistic animal prints, exquisite silk and sensual lace. The hybrid of silk and lace made a lingerie-worthy chapter of the Misha Collection spring/summer 2017 line-up – a seductive off-the-shoulder dress with a silky bodice and a sheer lace bottom having all the aspects of boudoir style to it was a pure magic as much as the other teaser with a lace bodice and a feathered skirt or the white lace piece with some hardly palpable feeling to it.
Golden tassels, intricate sparkling embroidery, crisscross designs on the arms and hips, elegant sparkling grey pieces with plunging necklines and puffed poetic sleeves were all beautifully systemized to tell all and sundry what Misha Collection adds up to.
But it was definitely the killer red that made Michelle run a red light thus keeping her elegant designs on the crest of a wave. The mind-blowing red chapter was all about an elegant trench coat, a silk strapless dress with a shockingly shocking side slit and a jumpsuit with a liquid feeling to it.
Haven’t yet got enough of the Misha Collection spring/summer 2017 runway show? Jourdan Dunn is here again to linger with pleasure strutting her stuff decked out into a chic silver dress with a center slit, a belt cinched around the waist and a romantic pussycat bow. No critiques in the cards, that’s for sure!
