Morgane Le Faye SS'16 #NYFW

Hudson Studios/NYC

Sometimes fashion doesn't have to be an intellectual statement. Modern beautiful clothes that flatter---may not have the critics clucking ---but designers-particularly women designers...just seem to 'get' their clientele.

Case in point:

Morgane Le Faye is a seasoned NYC-SOHO based fashion house with romance, elegance and a dose of mystery embedded in all the collections we remember ever seeing. (And yup-we have a few purchased separates too-they all withstand style's dismissible trends and are the feel good pieces we love to wear).

As we ' explained'  to another attendee at the recent Spring 2016 show---think= "Game of Thrones" sensuality and the power of its female leads--- attired in Morgane Le Faye ...if they went through a time machine.

The show-focused editorial collection of solid colors- titled "Everything Blooming"-featuring sheer chiffons, organza, silks and cotton-  skirts, blouses and our favs-the dresses-including a beautiful '"paintbrush" mercury double georgette asymetrical dress,  and the long gowns-including the last look a 'obsidian' black organza gown with smocked bodice and sculptural tulle skirt- that made us glad this was a runway show and not a presentation-to best see how the clothes draped so well.

Some highlights...
