Lucire: Fashion
the circuit

Farah Angsana Supposedly Japanese in inspiration, we loved the delicate, light touch that Angsana brought for her spring cocktail dresses

New York’s flawless fashion, and beyond


Rafael Cennamo
Rafael Cennamo’s fashion presentation was filled with extraordinary cocktail dresses and gowns, making every girl want to feel like a princess. The couture looks exposed a fabulous ambiance. The only extra detail that was missing was probably a red carpet, which is what most of the looks seemed to belong on.

Cennamo has been designing since he was an adolescent. In 2006 the young designer launched his couture eveningwear and four years later, in spring 2010, he launched a bridal collection. September 2011 marked his first appearance at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The fashion presentation included 22 looks ranging from long and flowing dresses to shorter dresses that accentuated the legs.

Elene Cassis
Elene Cassis was the last designer of the week to present her new spring 2012 collection in the Tents. A violinist performed a stimulating piece on a pink electric violin that stirred up the venue preparing viewers for the exciting show to commence.

Elene Cassis graduated from the Parsons School of Design in 2009 and, shortly afterwards, she established her own brand that is currently recognized by many young celebrities. Her designs emphasize feminine silhouettes and contemporary appeal. Each dress, from shades of peach, black, yellow, white, and blue perfectly outline the body. The designer conveys a sensual feel and look in each of her creations.

Fashion’s Night Out
When talking about Fashion Week in September, we can’t help but also mention the famous and highly popular evening, Fashion’s Night Out (FNO). The annual event includes everyone in and around the industry. It brings family, friends and the general public together.

FNO was launched in 2009 by the City of New York, Vogue, NYC & Company and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. It is a great way to mix the pleasure of shopping with a social gathering. It is an event embraced all over the country and even across the globe, as people look forward to the delight of shopping until late, the chance of winning an in-store contest, the endless possibilities of meeting celebrities, designers, models and singers, or even the opportunity to attend a live concert. It is an entertaining time filled with much bliss and enchantment reaching out to people of all ages. But the chances of getting around New York during Fashion’s Night Out may be a challenge; an incredible number of people try to make their way through the amazingly hectic and active streets as they try to participate in the action. During this time of year, the famous phrase, ‘The city that never sleeps,’ surely speaks for itself. •

Publisher’s choice
Jill Stuart

Another must-have collection this spring is Jill Stuart’s: the colourful collage approach struck a chord with us, and her prints set off a pleasant, upbeat mood. Inspiration was Evren Tekinoktay, the Danish artist, and we could certainly see the northern European influence in the geometry of the textiles. It’s a particularly international collection: European in inspiration, American in exection, with far wider appeal than both continents.—Jack Yan, Publisher

Japan was in the Zeitgeist a lot in 2011, though by the time of the earthquake and tsunami, most of the spring 2012 collections would have been well developed. Farah Angsana’s collection was her homage to the country, though we simply loved it for her fun, feminine cocktail dresses and the embellishments that seem to be coming back into trend
