The fashion house celebrated its 90th anniversary this year and for the Fall show they pulled out all the stops.  Long flowing dresses in bright vivid colors graced the runway as well as some sheer numbers over hot pants.  But the star of the show was the luscious furs in almost every color imaginable.  They came in small proportions, i.e. a deep violet shrug over a suede jacket and matching skirt, or large like the teal bomber paired with a slinky snakeskin skirt.





Dolce & Gabbana

This season the pair took the ABCs to a whole new level with every look featuring the letters of the alphabet.  Everything from skirts, dresses, and even leggings were alphabetized.  The colors were bright neon pinks, yellows, and oranges.  Although the designers had fun with this collection, it seemed to be rather one-dimensional.  




Donatella Versace's creations bloomed as models wore black sheaths with bright flower adornments.  Other sheaths were dressed up by adding a squiggle of seafoam green or purple.  Versace's leather two-piece jacket and skirt sets were military inspired while the slim silhouette of the finale gown with just a hint of wispy fringe at the bottom really caught my eye.
