Welcome to Paisley Petunia…part two!
I find inspiration in pretty pictures, endless possibilities in a bowl of Meyer lemons, the meaning of lifetime devotion in the wagging tails of our 3 rescue dogs, end-of- the-day bliss in a glass of red wine and now, the boundless, soul clutching meaning of life in the faces of my 2 little angels.
It's a happy, creative, joy-full life we've got here in the LA sun. Come play! Bring wine.
Anyway, sometimes it’s hard to recap a collection. Not being a professional fashion journalist we can only talk in layman terms about what we see and what we like/don’t like. However, in the case of Femme Noir by Phong Hong, we can’t stop talking. The collection was breathtaking. From the beautiful shape of the dresses to the abundant details, it is clear designer Phong has loads of talent and an incredible grasp of how to make a woman look beautiful. The rich wine color is one of my favs and the petal soft nude is so feminine without being too sugary. The whole collection translates to restrained decadence.
We would wear every single piece in the collection (of course a 44″ inseam like some of the models would make it even easier to wear these dresses but still) and I am certain we will have that opportunity soon enough. No doubt Femme Noir is going to be seen on runways, red carpets and in retail for a long time to come.
The finale dress was literally breathtaking, you could hear the audible gasps over the pulsing music. Impeccable detail.
