The live streaming videos of the fashion shows at IMG Fashion World is fantastic. I decided to test it out for the Baby Phat fashion show. At first the reception was choppy, flipping in and out as celebs like Fran Dresher (why was she there?) were showing off to the cameras. Once the fashion show started, watch out. It was on full power and everything went smoothly. And now, from my front row seat, here's my report.
My overall impression of the show was that it was edgy and sexy (assumed), but it was mixed with the soft and feminine (quite a surprise!). Cropped fur jackets were paired with skinny jeans or tiny shorts with hip hop attitude as they strutted to "My Hump". (I can't get that song out of my head. My hump, my hump, my hump, my hump! ....ahhhh)
Modish pea coat jackets cooly sauntered down in warm colors. Not what I would typically think of for Baby Phat.
But to my surprise, Baby Phat showed a multitude of dresses that may be part of a new trend following from spring called "let it flow". (I made that up btw.) The colors were rich and light at the same time, variations of purple with a softness of mauve.
Mixing the feminine and always edgy, the clothes that later followed was a flowy chiffon belted mini dresses or shirts paired with black leather pants. Black and white was definitely a theme that really resonated with me.
The final closing of the show! Kimora Lee with her two girls. I had a lot of fun watching and I can't wait to catch another one!
