In 2006, Daniel Vosovic burst onto the fashion scene with a runner-up finish on Bravo’s Project Runway. His freshman collection included my favorite piece produced by any Project Runway participant, a gorgeous ivory military coat with a sculpted collar. Recently, he returned to the runway with a win on the Project Runway All-Star Challenge and a presentation of his Fall 2010 collection.
I hate winter, but I love winter outerwear. It’s a conundrum from which I shall never recover. This coat has an incredible draped collar and a lovely embroidered detail on the torso. And even though I’m not sure how to feel about it, it’s interesting how Vosovic cut the bottom of the coat in a shirt-tail shape instead of straight across.
Because I work on Capitol Hill, I’m always looking for new and interesting suit shapes and styles. This suit has a beautiful drape to the jacket and a belted waist with a slight peplum. I also love that the cuffs of the sleeve pull away slightly from the wrist instead of fitting like cloth handcuffs. But while I love the jacket, I’m not crazy about the pants. Pleated wide legs would just accentuate my saddle bags–and no one wants that.
I love the soft, mauvey color of this dress. I think the pattern is water marks instead of a structured print. After a decade of empire waisted dresses, it’s nice to see a drop waist for a change. I also love the pleating and draping on the sleeves. This is a really fresh way to wear a one shoulder that is a bit sexy but also ladylike.
I love this suit. I would buy it right now and probably wear it way too much. The jacket has a banded collar, a strong shoulder and interesting details. The skirt has a layered design and fabulous slit. And to those of you who think that that slit isn’t appropriate for work, I say p-shaw. I’m not afraid to show a little leg within reason, and the rest of the suit is so demure that a little thigh isn’t going to kill anyone.
I love this dress. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it’s because only a small chested girl, like myself, could pull it off.
