Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Runway Review: Farah Angsana Spring 2012 Collection

I love a good gown, people. I am a party frock/evening gown/drip me in jewels kind of person, which is why there are certain designers whose shows I enjoy every season for delivering beautiful confections at which I marvel and think about what I would wear someday if I were to, say, get married or accept an Academy Award. For this reason, I look forward to the presentation of Farah Angsana each season and I’m happy to say that she didn’t disappoint.

Inspired by Japan, the collection was titled “Oriental Enchantment” and touches of inspiration were spotted throughout the collection. Cocktail dresses and gowns reflected different hues of blue sky and cherry blossom pink, while touches like a kimono sleeve on a dress coupled with a gorgeous raspberry-hued cocktail dress with a beaded bodice and origami-esque skirt spoke of her inspiration. Not taking the motif too literally, Angsana does what she does best and delivered cocktail and bridal frocks and gowns with beautiful style.

Beading, crystals and a series of white dresses – my favorite being a mini with a sheer boned bodice and an explosion of ostrich feathers for a skirt, were simply beautiful and lovely for those considering walking down the aisle or facing a wall of photographers against a step and repeat.

At any rate, please feel free to enjoy the photos of the dresses I was able to take at the presentation. If you’ve got a special event to attend this coming spring (especially one that involved a ring and a rather expensive cake,) then I’d suggest taking a look at Farah’s gorgeous creations this coming season.
