Donna Karan Fall 2007 RTW

A cute jacket shape in the ubiquitous colors of her Fall Collection.

An interesting tunic.

A bulkier fabric, used very well.

A face-framing collar.

Almost a 1920's sweater suit feel to this.

Interesting draping.

Ralph Rucci Spring 2007 Couture

Light as a feather.

The thinnest of fringed single layers for the top and all the other pieces as well.

Appliqué, not a print.

Beautifully embellished, and yet so airy.

Beautiful embroidery.

A lovely and wearable take on the Empire line.

Similar to last season's cutaway ballgown skirts, but so much lighter.

A gloriously loopy top with a graphic skirt.

Braids stitched into a bolero, like a modern Battenburg tape, over a braided and fringed gown.

Bill Blass Fall 2007 RTW

Primary colors at Bill Blass.

Classic coat style in a classic fabric.

A knit dress with an interesting cut and fresh color combination.

A funnel-necked jacket and pleated trousers.

Playing with the pinstripes.

Very nice.

I love the blue leopard print, and the suit shape is pretty cute too.

Great use of a really large-scale pattern.

The bands add just the right touch for a so-comfy suit.

Very nice leather trim.
