Miami Fashion Week: Day 2, Much Better
What a difference a day makes! After a dismal opening show Wednesday at the Carnival Center, Miami Fashion Week finally hit its stride Thursday night, with the JLo show. On display were simple yet adorable clothes aimed at the late-teens/early-20’s woman, with high hems and bright colors throughout. The line featured a lot of knits, creating a nice body-hugging look; they also used denim for several pieces, although that wasn’t as exciting a result. No matter, the clothes were interesting and cute. The picture here doesn’t do the show justice.
Granted, her show came after some shaky entries: swimwear designer Luli Fama showed cute-but-uninspired designs, and a string of eveningwear from various South American labels paraded down the runway all looking the same. But just as things were starting to look dim, Mrs. Marc Anthony stepped in and saved the day.
Actually, it’s quite clear Jennifer Lopez has very little, if anything at all, to do with the design of the clothes–she wasn’t even at the show–but that’s probably for the best. Everything was beautifully constructed and tastefully displayed. The audience even got free sunglasses in their giftbags. Thanks Jen! And no, that green Versace dress that La Lopez wore to show off all her goodies was nowhere to be found. Thankfully.
