Live from Fashion Week: Mara Hoffman
Our Fashion Week blogger Jessica got into the Mara Hoffman fashion show in New York yesterday. Mara, 31, has designed clothes for "Sex and the City." Naomi Campbell, Kate Hudson, Jessica Simpson and Halle Berry are fans. Here's Jessica's take on the designs. She also took photo and video, posted below!
Mara Hoffman's show was beautiful. Most of the pieces had bold prints and colors that looked like they were from somewhere in the Middle East, and were made of very light fabric. A trend that I saw in her show and in pictures of other shows is very loose, free-flowing clothes. Many of her sundresses could double as a bathing suit cover.
The bathing suits were mostly monokinis - one pieces that looked like bikinis but had a piece of fabric connecting the two main pieces. The few long dresses looked like they could still be dressed down easily with a pair of flip flops. They were spaghetti strapped that fit closely on the chest and then flowed away from the body, keeping with the overall theme of loose fabric.
