The Blonds Fall 2011 show definitely earned a place on my short list of “most memorable” shows of the season. I went in knowing to expect glitz and glamour, and even a few hijinks. By night’s end, the show, at Milk Studios, had met my expectations, and more.
The great thing about The Blonds is that while most of us probably will never wear anything like the amazing, theatrical costume-esque creations they send down the runway, once you see them in person, the desire is there. If I became a pop star tomorrow, would I want The Blonds to dress me? Definitely. All one needs is an incredibly special occasion to imagine themselves wearing such sparkling, imaginative clothing.
The Asian influenced collection referenced the theme in multiple ways, including chop sticks, fortune cookies, geisha girls, goddess statues, and of course, dragons. Every detail from the nail art, to the makeup, down to the impossibly bright, glittery shoes added to the look.
