Georgine is a designer that caught my eye during this past September’s New York Fashion Week. I can honestly say that out of all of my NYFW invites I recieved this season, I anticipated seeing her Fall/Winter 2016 collection the most!
Georgine’s inspiration for this collection came from the classic fairy tale characters that we all know and love, as well as their longtime struggle between good and evil. However, she added her own personal twist by portraying these characters as she imagine them to be in the 21st century.“Would Snow White wear an embroidered leather motorcycle jacket when she escaped to the woods?” and “What would Cinderella wear to a ball in this day and age” were some of the thoughts that ran through Georgine’s mind while creating this collection. You could vividly see the anwsers to these questions through her designs on the runway. Little Red Riding Hood was spotted rocking a fabulous red parka with fur details, and there’s no way you could miss Snow Whites “Grumpy” dwarf looking downtown chic!
These designs are the reason Georgine is set apart as a amazing designer to me. She has creative visions for her collections, but knows how to execute them through her garments in a way that always stay true to her design aesthetic. Her collections are cohesive and tell a beautiful story through fabulous designs!
My favorite look was the black sheer dress with writing paired with a black fur coat that had stripes of silver sequins throughout the coat! I may not be a mean or caniving person, but if today’s villains were dressed in that black and sequins fur coat, I may have take a quick walk on the dark side! Lol
Take a look at my favorites from the collection below and let me know which design caught your eye! 🙂
