Fashion design is a fiercely creative business. Being a designer requires one to honestly love what they do. For her Fall/Winter 2017 collection at NYFW, Leanne Marshall displayed designs that emulated her passion for creativity and beauty through clothing.
Dozens and dozens of fashion shows will be seen this snowy week all over New York City, but only a few will have the beauty and elegance to withstand time. Designer Leanne Marshall has shown designs time and again that are not only beautiful and elegant but also timeless.
Marshall’s designs carry an element of fantasy and etherialism, which seem to transform the one wearing the garment into a member of royalty as they whisp by you. This current collection for the fall/winter of 2017 is no exception.
Beautiful silk and chiffon gowns in flowing goddess-like silhouettes were the staples of this season. Instead of feeling stuffy or overthought, the mix of textures feathers and lace, with the materials mentioned above, along with the various necklines and high slits gave it a sense of relaxed yet powerful femininity. Our favorites from the Marshall show (pictured below) include a range of flowing dresses and separates that will appeal to women of all lifestyles.
Varied celebrities such as Phaedra Parks (Real Housewives of Atlanta), Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi (Jersey Shore), Emma Myles (Orange Is The New Black), Reginae Carter (daughter of Lil’ Wayne and star of “Growing Up Hip Hop), and Miss USA Deshauna Barber, all came out to support the designer and view the latest collection.
