Monique Lhuillier is known for her Red Carpet gowns and no doubt most of the attendees at her Fall 2011 fashion show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York were waiting just to see them. But some very important lady-like dressing was presented starting with black lace brought our of the bedroom and put right on suits, dresses, and sheaths. She also ran with the cheetahs, several pieces had animal print from dresses, to ball gowns. One big trend seen was her use of soft, billowy, plumy feathers. Several dresses were seemingly made entirely of feathers creating wonderful movement as the glided down the runway. Her suiting was strong shouldered and structured but softened with wool edge fraying and jacquard fabric. Then came the gowns. These were typically epic in proportion. Floating down the runway in a sea of tulle and feathers, organza and stardust, colors ranged from jet black, leopard, and blush to scarlet and java. The final gown combined in black combined Chantilly lace, embroidered tulle and a massive skirt of jet ostrich feathers. For the Red Carpet set, Monique Lhuillier rarely disappoints!
