BPR Party: PRAS4 Reunion Open Thread

Hello? Is anybody out there? Because we have certain pathological issues, we are about to spend an hour of our time in a very dubious manner. PRAS 4 isn't quite ready to leave us yet, gathering all 14 designers back together (Patricia Michaels was on this show?) for one last coffee klatch. If you truly have nothing better to do, than by all means join us as we bid farewell to the All Star designers (except for Kate Pankoke whom we are certain will be back again for S14) and hopefully get some entertaining dirt along the way. You've made it this far, why not finish off the misery! Click the comment tab and say hello and stuff.

Leanne Marshall Debuts at Lincoln Center with SHEER Beauty

And yes, the emphasis on SHEER is fully intentional. Many looks in this 42-piece collection incorporated such delicate sheer effects, from the bodice to really all over! Leanne's work is always feminine and ethereal, but it was great seeing her transition her signature aesthetic to full on red carpet glam and even some sexier pieces. She actually presented twice during NYFW, a RTW presentation at the Affinia Hotel, and then with more upscale looks for her first time presenting at Lincoln Center, The Pavilion. And WOW, what a show, very stunning, eye-catching, out of this world gowns, dresses, and even some separates.



The vibe for this collection was very light and airy, lovely pieces with a gorgeous fit and flowing trains. The color palette ranged from traditional staple colors, such as black and white, to more vibrant pops of color, such as crimson red and burnt orange. Leanne also created some magnificent prints with dye treatments, all thanks to Rit Dyes. 
 
 
 
Her various looks were segmented into separate categories -- Le Voyage (black & forest green staple, signature Leanne pieces), La Chasse de L'amour (many of the Rit hand-painted looks), La Obsession (all about the regal ruby red looks), & La Demence (lots of luxurious navy blue dresses).



My first fashion show ever in NYC was for Leanne Marshall, and I've seen her present many times since then. But I am immensely proud of her continued breathtaking work and for all of her success. I am very happy she was able to present at Lincoln Center and that for her debut showing, I was able to witness it firsthand. These looks were certainly memorable for such a momentous occasion. I am positive we will see some of them very soon on red carpets and the like!

CONGRATS & GREAT WORK LEANNE!!

Malan Breton - Fall 2015 Collection, "Stars"

Malan Breton presented his Fall, 2015 collection, "Stars" this morning at Lincoln Center.  Breton showcased 53 looks.  BPR Field Reporter, Jennifer Mara sends us this report.  
Thanks Jen!

Shoe designer Caterina Belluardo, Malan Breton and Jennifer Mara



Malan Breton truly woke up my spirit, among many others, this morning, with an early 9 am show held in The Pavilion at Lincoln Center. The Malan Breton Showcase of his Fall/Winter 2015 Men's and Women's Collection was the most elevated and exquisitely put together show of the week. 


All Photos - Jennifer Mara
Malan always delivers, his craftsmanship is flawless and every garment is stitched to perfection. From head to toe, each model looked consciously well thought out and put together. Malan's decisions in style are incredibly innovative, including intelligent twists on traditional styles for women AND men. He's all about breaking the rules just a little bit, showcasing oversized necklaces using leather, a full on three piece cashmere suit, ranging from fantasy to reality. Plus, Sir. Malan Breton knows how to put on a show!
