I swear that’s the same plastic covered lace I use as placemats. In any case, this collection by Jessica Madden is really awesome! I mean the ruffles, the lace, the shiny plastic! It’s like I’m in Elizabethan heaven! Madden has just graduated The University of Westminster and this was her senior fashion show. She is definitely one to watch as she has major talent. I can spot talent a mile away, by the way. Take for instance my other cat, Ms. Coco, who can bitch slap Mr. Marmar and still eat snacks simultaneously. That is unprecedented talent.

The talented Ms. Coco

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Yankee readers! Make sure you eat ’till you puke, zing your family all day and sleep yourself into a coma! That’s what today is all about!

Reminscent of other Japanese designers like Comme Des Garçon, Tao unveiled its spring 2011 collection with  mostly simple white and black ensembles embellished with ruffles. There was an air of the Victorian era with the neck ruffs and knickers. There were also doody hair dos- no! kidding… they were elongated chignons…. yeah, that’s it. Anyway, I can see myself wearing these, especially the knicker outfit during a leisure walk through a meadow (when does that ever happen?)

London-based designer Meadham Kirchhoff showed a candy goth-inspired look for Spring 2011. I’m really digging the colorful goth look- is that an oxymoron by the way?   If it is, I like it! The Victorian ruffles, the bright colors, the peter pan collars… awesome, fabulous, and fantastic. It’s like Wednesday Adams broke free from the deep, dark depressed look and dropped acid. No! Drugs are bad! Don’t do it, kids. But really, if Wednesday Adams visited  Willy Wonka’s factory and stuffed her face with banana Laffy Taffy, cotton candy and licorice – this is how she would look. A++ all the way.

I love Maya Hansen’s “Cake Corset Collection”! It’s so yummy! With names like ‘Mint Chocolate Corset’ and ‘Cherry Blue Corset’, you’re going to want to have a cupcake party with everyone wearing corsets! ….. maybe not. Click here for an actual cupcake corset.  But, I do like the color combinations and extra ruffles. You can never have too many ruffles! And you can never have too many ruffled curtains.  Also, I thought I’d throw in some Kiss and Metallica corsets… trying to balance the sweet with some rock!

I really liked this collection because it was really feminine, edgy and modern all at the same time. The purple dress in the second photo is just gorgeous! Reminds me of a more toned down Viktor & Rolf dress. The Mongolian lamb fur in the first photo looks so fluffy and soft…sort of like my cat. Anything that reminds me of my cats in a big plus in my book. I really don’t know what’s up with the lampshade, though. I guess it goes with the edgy territory. Givenchy really impressed me this season.

Betsey Johnson’s  Spring 2009 show was exactly what I think of when I think of Betsey Johnson- youthful, feminine, and whimsical. I really liked the use of ruffles and cage dresses. It was a cross between Victorian chic and pirate wear. With lots of innocent white, lace, bows and ruffles, Betsey Johnson strived for a pure look. Maybe, the Harajuku style is what most influenced her this season.  I’m not sure if they are wearable in some parts, but I would them- but then again, I would  wear anything that is a little out of the ordinary. Final Grade: A-
