As an architect there was one massive reason I moved to the United States of America after college and that was to be like my idol architect Frank Gehry. I remember the first time I stepped into a building designed by him, I cried. Profusely. So image my excitement on getting my invite to one of my favorite fashion designer’s shows to be taking place in a Frank Gehry designed building. I really want this show to happen again just so that I can feel the pure pleasure I felt being in that moment again. Art everywhere. I can’t explain the immense impact the structure had on the collection either. The white translucency of the glass façade on the white, purple and black collection, which also had a lot of shear, played perfectly well together.
The orchid lips and the butterfly sunglasses are definitely the trade marks of this season’s collection. Prabal knows how to design in detail. Here are some of the glimpses from the show but I can bet they do not make up for the real experience.

Taylor caught in action. I would love for her to read stories to my future kids with those expressions.
