Farah Angsana: Glamour and Fragility!
Farah Angsana’s Spring/Summer 2012 presented at Lincoln Center, NYC, during the MB Fashion Week came as a great surprise to me, with all these adorable colors and nice fabrics assembled for maximum femininity. Draping and frilling were part of the game between fragility and infallible elegance. Crystal studded details were framing some body parts, especially neck and waist lines, while beads and gems were playing the role of a ‘fashinator’ on women’s outfits. The styles were ultimately Roman- or Grecian-inspired and reminded me of ancient godesses from the Greek or Roman pantheon, known to us through ancient statues, temple friezes and pediments. There was of course an Oriental flare in all this, evident in the intricate decorations and luxury materials used. Among them one could find a section of three dresses that could be easily called ‘bridal,’ which I liked very much. They were designed for three different types of women – sexy with a hot bustier and a feathery skirt, classic with a sparkly belt under the breast and glamorous with feathers and crystals in harmonious coexistence. There were also charming cocktail and evening looks focusing on various shades of pink which seems to be the designer’s favorite palette. Besides that range of colors we saw various shades of red and orange, as well as some nudes and pastels, especially ice blue, very light and ideal for fairy looks.
