Frederica Vaccaro is a young designer from Italy. The whole collection had this khaki and black color scheme with the red folded over ankle socks. I loved all the details down to the tousled pinned up hair & bold cherry red lipstick on each of the models. The collection included a lot of double breasted khaki waistcoats and skirts, mini black bows, and black spandex bike shorts. Some other themes of the collection include starched white collared shirts, masculine tailoring, and poufy sleeves.
Argentinian designer Veronica de la Canal's Marie Antoinette inspired collection immediately reminded me of my blogging friend Modern Marie. The designs seemed like something the queen herself would have worn; super extravagant, lacy, and dripping in pearls and feathers. The highlight of the collection for me was the handpainted corsets with portraits on them of Antoinette and other 18th century figures. The usual pastel brocades and tight corsets were updated with a rock and roll feel using colored tulle and slicked back pontails. The last model to walk the runway even had dreadlocks.
