Charlotte Ronson’s fashion shows are always something to look forward to. First off, Charlotte was born and raised in New York City, and has a list of friends that you might just be jealous of. Her front rows are always full of the moment’s “it girls”. This year’s front row consisted of Kelly Osbourne, Nicky Hilton, Joy Bryant, Margherita Missoni, Angela Simmons, Ellie Goulding, and Whitney Port. All of the women sat next to each other, and were most certainly the buzz of the runway. Louise Roe, Simon Huck, and Jonathan Cheban also sat front row…just at the other end.
Ronson’s sister DJ Samantha Ronson spun at her show, and picked an eclectic mix of music which kept the viewers on their toes. I’ve seen Samantha DJ a couple of times this summer, and I think she is one of the best.
The show began with denim dresses, pants, mini shorts, and jackets, all accessorized with either collar necklaces, platform shoes with tights, or thin belts. There were also silk pieces such as a skirt and a matching shirt, which were both trimmed with denim and provided some much loved edge. Next came darling floral mini dresses, shorts, (although they looked a tad bit like lingerie) and overalls, which had denim pockets.
My love for this collection started once the Missoni-looking knits came down the runway (wonder what Margherita thought!): sweaters, skirts, mini shorts- just to die for. Then came suede frocks and mini shorts with a matching jacket, which I kind of see as more fall rather than spring. Next came tie-dye galore in shades of orange, which are perfect for a Spring day and will transition well for night.
The final look that came down the runway was what got all of the paparazzi going (snap after snap after snap!); a stunning deep orange, yet somewhat red, halter jumpsuit embellished with silver sequins in circular shapes.
