Fashion Week Highlights: Daniel Vosovic

Feb 17, 2010

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.

    Agree with you, Belle, that the pale gray suit pants are strange. Ill-fitting and as if she neglected to get them hemmed. Too bad, because the jacket is so pretty.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
