NYFW: Jill Stuart

By: Maddison Brown & Julia Smith

“Jill Stuart’s fall muse was the modern, aristocratic Brit, like Stella Tennat, said the designer before the show.” Reported by WWD
The collection ranged from structured pieces to quickly turning sweet and modern, with dresses and collared bows. Keeping the colour palette dark with blacks and navy’s, then came iridescent clothing, and lace patterns were added to the garments giving them more femininity. More colourful garments then made appearances such as floral printed dresses, as well as black and gold dresses. The show ended with dresses ranging from red to burgundy, with flower appliques. The theme of the show was accomplished, making women want to look effortlessly cool. - Julia

Think gorgeous cocktail dresses at the classiest event of the year, and you have Jill Stuart’s Fall 13 line. One by one the stunning creations took the runway with each printed dress more mesmerizing than the last. Details such as lace cutouts, classic peter pan collars and gorgeous silhouettes made this an ultra-girly collection. Where there weren’t stunning dresses there were classy business attire in all the right fabrics. Velvet, silk, and lace adorned the models in figure flattering blazers, high-waisted pants and skirts. 

Colours were a mosaic straight from the autumn leaves themselves in gorgeous golds and reds. Deep tones of teals and purples were also a heavy highlight, many shown through flowering embellishments and pinstripes. A few of the accessories were exceptionally whimsical including the use of shoulder-accenting capes in varying lengths. A large erogenous zone for the collection was the neck, with this focus being accented using delicate lace necklines, collars and neck ties. An all around gorgeously feminine show!  - Maddison
