Verrier Fall 2008
Where & When: Saturday, February 2nd at 6 p.m. in the Salon, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Ashleigh Verrier's collection was so polished, it's hard to believe she graduated from Parsons just over three years ago. (Seriously--she could teach several seasoned designers a thing or two about how to put on a show.) Inspired by Imperial Russia and Fabergé eggs, her designs were unapologetically feminine and polished, but not sickeningly sweet. Many pieces sparkled with Swarovski crystals, but Verrier countered the glitz with understated mohair, velvet, and chiffon. If you shop at Anthropologie now, this is what to aspire to.
Standout Look: From the gigot-sleeve coat to the airy taffeta camisole and the metallic brocade skirt, this ensemble is pure pretty-pretty-princess perfection.
Bonus Points: No nipples here--the models all wore nude bras. That's right, bras. This blew me away; I don't think I've ever seen undergarments on a runway before. See, I told you Verrier is a class act.
Where to Buy: Nordstrom
