NY Fashion Week Spring ’08. Monique Lhuillier: Embrace Your Feminity. Second City Style Fashion Blog

September 12, 2007 • New York Fashion Week Spring '08

Summary: This show of mainly pastels was utterly feminine and a showcase of fine draping. According to the program "This season is all about embracing your femininity. " Lhuillier herself wrote, "I saw the color palette flash before my eyes (while eating her favorite macaroons). I whipped up silk tulles, organzas and chiffons to create an over-all light weight whimsical feeling. People come to me for special pieces. That is what you are going to see today!"

The dresses and gowns were just as gorgeous leaving the runway as the were entering. Cocktail dresses and evening gowns were wrapped delicatley around the body,
some ending in a ruffled neck or corset, others in asymmetrical necklines (a huge trends for spring). There were a few black dresses and some in jersey not to mention a high-waisted black trouser with a
white ruffled blouse. But classic Lhuillier speaks to the glamour girl in us all. The one that likes to get dressed up and look elegant without really trying too hard. There was only one gown that looked a little too fussy and resembled a tiered wedding cake, but other than that one mistep, the showcase was flawless.
