Fashion Week: BCBG

The BCBG spring 2008 collection is as lovely as the spring blossoms. Through feminine silhouettes and the wide use of light fabrics, Max Azria and his wife Lubove showed a collection that epitomizes the delicate feminine.
Lots of white outfits started the show with models waltzing down the runway in barely made-up faces and messy, flowing hair. The silhouette this season is slimmer, more floaty with an emphasis on the waist. Tiny leather belts and ribbons with delicate bows adorned the models' waists.

The show then progressed to the use of delicate colors such as light purple, silver blue and a muted yellow. Light fabrics continued its dominance with volumes of organza and tulle framing stronger structure such as shift dresses and trench coats. The tailoring is present, yet softened by multiple layers of transparent fabrics that exude a sense of mysticism.

Max Azria did a good job in creating a collection that provides a much needed change from Fall's constructionism. It is refreshing to see such femininity returning in fashion.
