College Fashion’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week coverage kicks off today with one of the first brands that showed yesterday at Bryant Park, BCBG Max Azria.
CF was invited to this show, but unfortunately scheduling issues prevented us from covering it live. Fortunately for us (and you), Style.com‘s amazing runway photographers caught it all! Read on to see some of our favorite looks from the show as well as a review and rundown of the key trends.
CF Runway Review:
If you’re at all familiar with BCBG, you probably already know what to expect from the line. This year’s collection stayed true to the brand’s aesthetic: young, sexy, fun, and wearable. Celebrities such as Amanda Bynes and Leigh Lezark sat front row, which is fitting because we can totally picture them wearing the clothes.
This season’s BCBG collection consisted of a slew of fun, wearable dresses that would be perfect for a night out. Styles ranged from 80’s throwback, complete with neon hues and asymmetric construction, to greek goddess, with thoughtfully draped jersey and flowing silhouettes. The basic tee shirt dress received an update with the addition of sheer panels and strategically-placed slits. Sex appeal was also part of the mix – in an obvious nod to his work at Hervé Léger, Azria sent a few gorgeous bandage dresses down the runway as well.
Overall, this collection was just what you’d expect from BCBG Max Azria – nothing too boundary-pushing, but still a group of very pretty and extremely wearable looks sure to be seen on it-girls all over this spring.
