Mercedes Benz Fashion Week FA 07: The Quest For "it" Text Coverage: Day 1- Marc Bouwer
Imitation is Life was the title of Marc Bouwer's Fall 2007 showing which was inspired by the sunrise and sunset on the arctic sea. Marc Bouwer indeed reigns as the undisputed icon of glitz and glamor. Presenting not simply dresses, but floor length gowns of rich silk velvets and taffeta, this season is a stunning display of simplicity and elegance shown in a subtle sophisticated way. There were several standout pieces, many of which were in rich flaming red as well as contrasting arctic blues and silver. Favorites that captured the metallic heavens, a source of Mr. Bouwer's inspiration, were the pailette pieces which dazzled the eye at every turn.
Marc Bouwer, a longtime PETA supporter as in season's past, makes excellent use of today's technology by creating faux fur that is both luxurious and cruelty free. Selections range from a striped chinchilla coat to a minuscule mink shrug allowing for the a wide variety of choices.
Important Piece: Silk velvet trapeze halter with miniscule shrug.
Wrap Up: Pieces from this collection are a must have for women seeking complete luxury. The velvet gowns were particularly noteworthy.
Notes: Noteworthy attendees included model Petra Nemcova, actor/comedian Richard Belzer, actress Vivica Fox etc.
