I was really excited to be invited to Badgley Mischka’s SS’15 show at the Lincoln Centre. Season after season, this duo manage to create fairytale red-carpet dresses that makes the lucky ladies who wear them feel like princesses. This models had colourful highlights in their hair and wore pale, shimmering gold, blue, rose pink and lilac gowns. My favourite dress from the collection was undoubtedly the etheral, ivory creation below (that may have made Amy Poehler in the FROW weep... or scratch her eye, but for the sake of the story, we shall just say she wept.)
"Everything is light, airy, even our gowns which is our core business, you know, with huge voluminous hems. The gowns are as light as a feather, we didn't even line them, we are showing little crystal bodysuits underneath them," said Badgley. "Our girls right now are all layered and layered and layered in black clothes for fall, so we like to go the complete opposite way for spring."
I was another level of excited when, admits a beautiful downpour of silver balloons, Naomi Campbell made a surprise appearance alongside Mark Badgley and James Mischka in the finale, celebrating their 25th anniversary. The supermodel, who walked ahead of a giant birthday cake down the runway, had walked in Badgley Mischka’s first ever NYFW runway show, so it was truly symbolically perfect.
Now THAT my friends, was a real fashunnn moment!
