Jill Stuart - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Set against the hallowed backdrop of the New York Public Library, Jill Stuart's fall collection was more studied this time around--albeit just as girlish and ruffled as seasons past. She opened her show with layered black dresses dripping with lace and shredded yarns, which tempered the sweetness of the purple chiffons and satin trousers of subsequent looks. But don't think that the Jill Stuart girl has gone completely tough: in a move to perhaps avoid a wardrobe malfunction, Jill made sure her models were wearing undergarmets--even if that meant they were entirely visible under her ethereal, sheer pieces.
