Field Report: Alice + Olivia Fall/Winter 2012 Presentation #NYFW #MBFW

Alice + Olivia is another personal favorite of mine and this Fall/Winter 2012 collection was full of chic cocktail dresses perfect for every fabulous party on your social calendar. Stacey Bendet brought the glamour with a goth inspired collection that was edgy and chic without veering off into unwearable.

The Alice + Olivia Presentation was done in the style of a very glam cocktail party with gilded candelabras and cakes that were like edible art installations.The collection showcased both day and evening pieces in a range of colors such as pink, cyan, gold, black, white and green with black stripes. The collection had plenty fun party dresses that consumers have come to expect from Alice + Olivia but also included several longer gowns.

The Alice + Olivia collection showcased a lot of volume in the silhouettes from peplums, voluminous minis and pencil skirts covered in layers of ruched fabric. The collection was styled with sleek hair and smokey eyes and the effect was an effortlessly chic vibe the screams “fabulous cocktail party” so loud you can almost hear the clinking of glasses. Overall, Alice + Olivia has presented another fantastic collection of frocks sure to be seen at a fantastic party near you this fall.
