Andy Thê-Anh’s shows are the ones I always look forward to the most. Mainly because I usually love his designs’ flowy, feminine aesthetic, his lovely attention to detail, and the general feeling of being at an actual runway presentation that has something new to show its viewer. Thê-Anh’s Fall 2010 show opened with an ad – something I’ve never seen done before, and it made me cringe initially, but thinking about it now, I’d bet having a fashion show is a costly endeavor, and who am I to judge how someone gets funds to bring his creative vision to life? The good thing was that the ad was actually funny, and once it was done, the real Andy Thê-Anh show started.
As always, there were plenty of looks that I loved – from smoky patterned dresses in blue, to the immaculate suits with such detailing as ruffles and pleats. There was an abundance of maxi pieces, which made me quite happy about that long, dramatic dress I got at H&M for $10! It’s not Andy Thê-Anh, but it’ll do. Elbow length leather gloves, and belted waists completed most looks, which were totally wearable and, yes, feminine. Thê-Anh shows remain one of the hottest tickets in town, and in this case, it is well-deserved, ad or no ad.
