2011 Pre-Fall Collections were all about couture, warmth, class, glitz and glamor! Finally beautiful knee length dresses that you won’t have to second guess as too short. Warm fur jackets and vests from Donna Karen, J. Mendel, and Burberry Prosum. Beautiful tailored pants from well known designers such as Thaakoon and Jason Wu, perfect for business and pleasure. But the all times favorites for 2011 Pre-Fall/Autumn Collections had to be the beaded, embellished and glamorous dresses perfect for the red carpet, How jealous I am of the celebrities that will wear these designs.

Max Azria’s collection was inspired by images from Africa, this travel-themed resort collection feels fresh with colorful batik printed caftans and billowy silk dresses. More colors included a rainbow of greens, neutral separates, and a series of white cotton shirts and tank dresses. Carolina Herrera’s collection was very light. The theme of the collection is very feminine and romantic, with many vibrant colors the collection is made for everyday in any part of the world. Diane Von Furstenberg’s collection was a very sexy beachy look. The collections had forties-style rompers with matching visors and totes, cinched wrap dresses over bathing suits; many graphic stripes, polka-dot prints, and tropical colors. Oscar de la Renta’s fashion show was one for the books. Especially since he streamed it live on Facebook. His collection included embellished jackets, skirts and dresses. With many different prints and vibrant colors this collection is perfect for that getaway we’ve been dying for.
