Summary: One expects extravagant, blinged out gowns in lavish fabrics when attending a Badgley Mischka fashion show. And boy, did they deliver just that. The Fall 2009 Collection was filled with silk georgette gowns and tulle and satin chiffon dresses in a mixture of colors only found inside a jewelry box: liquid gold, silver, platinum and bronze. Each new look Mark Badgley and James Mischka presented was better than the last. Bling was also a mega trend. Models sparkled down the runway in custom made Badgley Mischka jewelry, gem encrusted gloves and bead embellished gowns. The fall assortment certainly shimmered, and anyone who is anyone will shine just as bright when sporting Badgley Mischka's fall collection.
