Graey Fall 2009
Where & When: Friday, February 13th at 6 p.m., Morgan Court
Runway Recap: After starting out with a line of tanks and tees, designer Janet Kim presented her first line of dresses, a welcome burst of color after all the neutrals I'd been seeing thus far. The contemporary-minded dresses featured colorblocking, curved seams, and sheer insets--Kim herself told me that she was inspired by painting and wanted to play with transparent and opaque fabrics. Silhouettes ranged from slinky and fitted to breezy and trapezey--a something-for-everyone approach---and one could definitely picture them hanging on the racks at a Scoop, Big Drop, or Intermix near you.
Standout Look: The purple dress was my favorite--I am all for a shift dress, but sheer insets at the upper chest kept things interesting.
Bonus Points: The cocktail-party-like presentation provided the perfect setting for showing the party-friendly dresses. Funny how that works.
