New York Fashion Week Fall 2011- Norman Ambrose

Norman Ambrose

This is designer Norman Ambrose's debut onto the New York Fashion Week scene. With a background that includes the Academy of Art in San Francisco, and names like Bottega Veneta and Versace on his resume, he's bringing out honed technical skills and a discriminatory eye for details.

Colors: gold, silver, gray, black, taupe

Materials: fur, beading and shiny things

Wow. For those who style red-carpet, these are some looks to add to your arsenal. Often, when a new designer tries to bead, sequin and feather, the result is a strange club dress from some New York whole-sale shop in the garment district. This is absolutely not true for Norman Ambrose's collection. Tastefully and impeccably done, his evening gowns and separates proved that before he launched on his own, he made sure he had his skills down. New designers, take note, this us how you debut. The gold leaf embellished dress and the turquoise jeweled top, with a splash of late 60's early 70's actress allure were flawless. Fist bump to the stylist and creative team on this show as well.

I only like fur on living animals. I'm not PETA crazy, but little balls of fur are off putting to me-unless they are barking or meowing. But ladies who love to taxidermy themselves in animal pelt coats will go ape-shit over these jackets. (Pun intended)

People, Scene, Music

The Lincoln Center box gives presentation designers a great way to squeeze in with all of the other shows going on. Though sometimes simple white background is best. Models stood on actual boxes, leaned on ladders in front of a colored paper backdrop. It looked very much like a school gymnasium area reserved for couples pics at the school dance. Gospel-soul singer Ms. Candi Staton's Victim played in the background. As far as the people, lots of bloggers. It seems we are the new eyes for spotting the up and coming. ATL and Wintour, you missed out.
