Fashion Week: Marc Bouwer Defining Class
Marc Bouwer is a creator of timeless glamour. Gowns and dresses are his forte and that is an understatement. His collection felt like old Hollywood and women turned into sirens and color wasn’t absent. Red lipstick flattered every one of his models and reminded us that class still exists.
Silk and satin were abundant with a dash of velvet. Inky colors were bold and grabbed your eye without being too flashy. A cherry red and cobalt blue were even welcomed in his fall elegance. Faux fur that came in all shapes and forms brought the added old school glamour that we all see to lack these days.
From form fitting to puffy all shapes were present. It was impossible to choose favorites. Chic slinky gowns that Marilyn Monroe would have happily wore had deep v-necks. Ballgowns and cocktail dresses mixed easily and every creation that entered was followed by whispers of “oooh” and “ahhh.” Vivica Fox and Perta Nemcova were among the crowd and wore smiles at the sight of the collection.
