The first night of Fashion Week started Thursday Night with Designers Dena Burton and George Styler. Outside of the event O'Gara Coach Car Company displayed their new line of Luxury Bentley's and Rolls Royce.

The first runway show of the evening featured Designer Dena Burton who hails from my hometown of Chicago. Her couture line was sophisticated and elegant showing a cohesive and polished line. Winter whites and faux fur were some of her choices in design. Models wore sexy big hair and minimal makeup gracefully walked down the runway as each fabric flowed. Dena Burton's clothing appeared carefully crafted sending a sexy and confident message to buyers and fashion enthusiast. Overall Dena Burton’s line was razor sharp, clean and fashion forward.

Designer George Styler came out swinging. His colorful clothing line gave my eyes a burst of life. Each piece of was spectacular and intriguing. The Designers line was very detailed and intricate in every way. The beauty Team from Luxelab continued the Designers intricate looks by creating braided up do’s that were a showstopper in its own right. George Styler seemed to create a line that is designed to make a powerful statement. This Designer can manipulate fabric in a way no one can, every design was merely a masterpiece.

So many other Designers stood out including Phlemuns who showcased its Fall/ Winter 2016 Collection for men and women. Designer James Flemons used seductive shades of yellow such as Chartreuse, Goldenrod, Amber and Saffron for his color palette, with burst of fushia and bright orange as accents woven into patterns. Designer James Flemons seems to have a strong hold on pop culture. For this runway collection James uses denim and plaid to create a youthful vibe.  As each piece walked down the runway I couldn’t help notice how relaxed and fluid his collection really was. His entire collection was cohesive, clean, well crafted and inspiring. I hope to see Phlemuns Collection in every major retail business, when it will thrive and help cultivate a resurgence of creativity for free spirited people.

Other Designers stood out throughout the night, including the Closer of the Night Designer Esther Perbandt from Berlin, Germany.  This is the Debut Runway Show for Designer Esther Perbandt in the United States.  The Designer chose black, white and grey tones for her Men and Women’s fall/Winter Collection. Esther’s European flare was clear and evident, as she showcased flowing dresses in white and flipped the script with  a well structured suit including fabrics of leather accents on the shoulder. The Men’s line showcased a gorgeous grey striped pattern floor length coat as well as black and white deconstructed suits and vest.  The fabrics chosen created an elegance and strength which complimented the body’s form.
