Saturday night the most anticipated night of style week has arrived and Label was packed with anxious fashion lovers dying to see what would be gracing the runway from all of the amazing designers. All of the designers showcased their collections and left all of us in awe of the passion and creativity they presented on the runway. The night was about showcasing fashion that brought forth excitement and emotion and the designers did just that.
Enemy 2 Fashion was the show opener serving attitude in their militant inspired attire. The catwalk was filled with camouflage, army green and printed fabric giving us a sense of edginess.
Ritu Selects showcased gowns in rich beautiful colors draped in jewels, embroidery and matching accessories. A plus was the addition of men’s attire which was well constructed with beautiful fabric and prints. While watching these looks on the runway you could feel the tradition and love put into these garments.
Fab’rik at lake Norman hit the runway with fashion looks that were fun, flirty and casual. They presented looks that could be transitional and provided separates that could be mixed and matched with items you already own in your wardrobe.
Zachary Howell graced the runway with breathtaking gowns gaining him a grand applause when his models left the runway. They dazzled us in high-low voluminous gowns, trumpet silhouettes, floral prints, cropped tops, plunging necklines and the occasional fur accessories added to some of his gowns. When these ladies hit the runway they demanded the crowds attention and we loved every minute of it.
Irina Shabayeva the winner of the sixth season of Project Runway was the finale designer. Her designs were state of the art and when the looks hit the runway we were all in awe of her passion and talent that poured out of her designs. The collection was filled with beautifully constructed gowns using metallic golds, silver, prints, sequence, plunging necklines and low back lines, severe draping, high splits, ball gowns, dropped waist…you name it she had it! Her gowns were show stopping and turned heads as they sashayed down the catwalk. This collection was the perfect way to end such a memorable event.
