2008 Fashion Week: Finally, a Look for Real Ladies

1.jpgOur prayers have been answered! Finally clothes on the runway look like they could flatter the bodies of real women! This concept seemed forgotten in recent seasons, but it looks like the designers at 2008 New York Fashion Week have seen the light.

Instead of runways filled with shapeless dresses too short to wear outside the house we see the a-line, the pencil skirt and the trouser with unparalleled class; bringing back the 1920's-40's in a big, bright and beautiful way! Now we can embrace our feminine form (butts, hips and all) and the colors, bows and frills that go along with it!

Designers finally remembered that not all women possess the lankiness or stature of super models (I sure as hell don't). These looks will translate perfectly into Spring and Fall fashion and present a much needed change from the current styles on the racks. Most of the designers were impressive, but some hit it out of the park (at least Bryant Park).

Color! Feminine Inspiration! Marc Jacobs remains a god amongst men. Talk about a real artist.

Diane von Furstenberg created the perfect look. Everything from the dress to the hat looks amazing.

Now what does this mean to the average lady? We're far from Bryant Park and the fashion week mayhem. It means keep all your belts, buy some high waisted pants and eagerly wait for the moment that a-line dresses and colorful trench coats hit the shelves at H&M.
