Monique Lhuillier Spring / Summer 2013

The sexy allure of a mermaid sitting on a rock in the ocean is what we are presented with in Monique Lhuillier’s spring / summer 2013 fashion show at New York fashion week (NYFW). Monque Lhuiller is known for her sophisticated luxury designs: she makes a women look beautiful all over. This collection gives women the elegance of a mermaid and the sophistication that women strive for especially in New York.


The color tones were bright and eye catching, the fabrics used for this season were heavier so to give the body more shape. Especially structured were the bodices. The bodices connected to long flowing skirt edges and trains of gowns, and the dresses trickled down in color and in structure posing a lovely juxtaposition of heavier fabrics mixed with light weight fabrics. A mermaid would be caught wearing one of these gowns perched on a sandy beach.

This collection was definitely a preview of what to see on the red carpet season next. Lhuillier is well known for dressing stars for events and this collection was geared to them. The gowns were fresh and colorful, with printed fabrics that give women the beauty of a delicate siren. You could clearly see where her inspiration came from: a trip to turkey where she was on a boat and observed the ocean along with its movements and noticed how beautiful the nature is all around us.
