Falling for Spring Fashion 2009

I love fashion. Nothing inspires my needle and gives me more ideas than watching the fashion trends that come out every season. This month, New York and London have both held their fashion shows for Spring 2009 RTW. Here's what I saw...

Ruffles, ruffles and more ruffles and layer upon layer of sheer fabrics...

By Jo Packham

by Carolina Herrera

By Luella

And lots of ribbons both woven and flowing...

By Benjamin Cho

By Miele

And lace like this dress by Diane Von Furstenburg.

All of Diane Von Furstenberg's models wore these headdresses to match their dresses. I think I liked them more than the clothes!

And who said that yo-yo's are "homespun", B. Michael made a giant yo-yo into a hat!

And some designers like Luella use it all!!

But, by far the most fun show I reviewed was by Betsey Johnson.

It's nice to see a show that simply makes you smile.

I loved everything about this show...the stage, the make up, the hair, the models, the clothes. You can watch the fashion show here.

But this is my absolute fave Betsey Johnson look....

Unfortunately, I can't wear that down the streets of New York. It's just not practical.

This look, however, by Temperley London is what I hope the paparazzi will catch me wearing on my way out of Tiffany's....

Speaking of Tiffany's, I've got to go work on my block...

Hope you have a day filled with inspiration!

This post was a wonderful surprise. Dish TV cancelled the station that showed all of the fashion shows earlier this year. I have been going through withdrawls all Summer. I live in Wisconsin so it takes fashion trends a few years to make it across the "Cheddar Curtain".

Thanks :-) - I really enjoyed looking at all the photos.

Never been a follower of fashion myself tho - was Goth, now Vintage stuff. Hate the thought of getting rid of clothes 'just because' they are last year's.

It is all fun, tho!
