NYFW: Rolando Santana S/S 12


Sometimes designers leave you speechless because their collection speaks better than you can. In this case, Rolando Santana's S/S 12 collection was flawless from start to finish. His styling and tailoring are bar none. I attended the show with my mom (whose favorite dress of the night was this ivory sequin on chiffon long-sleeve shirt dress that had a cut-out back, pictured right), and we just went back and forth picking our faves. The show was well attended...it was standing room only. We barely got a seat. The big hit of the night was a silver sequin sleeveless jumper with a sheer front detail (pictured left). I think every female there wanted one. His collection was chic, effortless, elegant with a modern edge, clean, fresh, glamorous, and a day-night seamless transition. And let me not forget to mention the shoes..which how could I? They were by Manolo Blahnik and I had a total "Carrie" moment. Rolando never disappoints.
