MBFW: Jenny Packham Proves All That Glitters Is Gold
Jenny Packham’s fall 2013 collection is fit for a Parisian noblewoman!
Inspired by the 17th century Parisian salonnières where scholarly women congregated, Jenny Packham’s fall 2013 line exuded sheer elegance. Complete with breathtaking gowns that floated down the catwalk and glistening sequined numbers, the collection made it simple to see why style-savvy ladies like Kate Middleton, Taylor Swift, and Blake Lively favor the designer.
Styles ranged from sweeping gowns in princess silhouettes to loose-fitting trousers. And there was no shortage of sparkling embellishments, delicate tulle overlays, and beaded floral patterns. Models glided down the runway donning neatly-gathered ponytails that complemented Packham’s graceful pieces. Meanwhile, the lineup of lush shades featured midnight blue, sultry crimson, warm cinnamon, and aquatic teal.
Especially swoon-worthy was the assortment of perfect red dresses (forget your tired old LBD), which included beaded floor-length creations to flowing knee-length frocks. Gorgeous!
One thing’s for certain: I’ll be red with envy over the starlets who grace the carpets in Jenny Packham.
