Georgine held her S/S 2016 runway show last Sunday at Skylight Moynihan Station. This season was my 4th covering the designer and she has become one of my favorites during Fashion Week. 

"For spring 2016 I was interested in breaking the rules and perception in regards to clothing. For example why does a jean jacket not be made out of leather and why can I not make an evening gown out of spandex, that is also reservable. I wanted to use modern day technology and transition it into my garments." Georgine stated when discussing the inspiration for the new collection. "We used lots of fur, we dyed them really bright fun summer colors, we used lots of embroidery and sequins this season, we really had fun with it" she added.

One of my favorite pieces from the collection was a floral collar dress with pink fur sleeves, showcasing that breaking the rules pays off. Being a graphic designer, I couldn't get enough of the color palette/color-blocking in a lot of the pieces, which reminded me of fun pantone swatches.

When designing, listening to music is a huge part of Georgine's process, and can range from techno, jazz to gospel. Which you can tell when watching the models bouncing down the runway to David Bowie 70's classics. Overall this collection is fun & colorful with pieces perfect for Spring.
