Monique Lhuillier #NYFW Fall 2012

The trends are starting to really show. For Fall 2012 some of the must-haves include furs, leather, bold prints, color blocking, pops of color, and lots of layering. Monique Lhuillier’s collection showed feminine shapes, but toughed up with black leather gloves, leather inserts, and dark, bold prints. The body conscious designs (ladies, start dieting now) are for a “take charge” woman with lots of confidence. Orange and red are the “new black”
