Fall 2010’s most alluring trend include the elegant, ethereal and fantastical draping designs seen on the runways this season. Designers who have played the draping card this fall season and emphasized the classic Grecian trend while keeping their personal touch includes Alexander Wang, Donna Karan, Derek Lam, Gwen Stefani (L.A.M.B), J. Mendel, Oscar De la Renta, Costelo Tagliapietra (my personal favorite collection) and of course, Narciso Rodriguez– the king of all draping techniques, the brilliant and incredible Zeus of all modern Greek-Goddess inspired fashion.
In addition to an elegant, Greek-Goddess appearance and quality, draping can also enhance volume and texture. The Grecian formula for figure flattery ensures sensuality while masking insecurities (Vogue).
With endless holiday dinners and parties during the fall and winter season, wearing a beautifully draped garment can make you look and feel like a goddess. The draping trend can be found in various styles, from tops, to skirts to cocktail dresses.
The great thing about draped pieces is that you can mix and match and STILL look magical.
You can wear a draped top with a pair of skinny jeans or a draped skirt with a ruffle top to even out the volume.
Drapes, interesting knots and a flowy silhouette can make any woman feel enchanting, fabulous and chic.
In honor of the beautiful goddesses Aphrodite and Athena, I visited Express at Ala Moana Shopping Center and purchased a black knotted mini skirt to add to Honey’s Closet.
Have a great night everyone!
