As my textiles teacher used to say "Make sure its taut"

For the past few seasons high street trends have been tight, tight, tight. From tube skirts to body-con dresses we just cant get enough. Now I have to admit I'm not the most educated when it comes to designers and fashion weeks but I know what I like and what I don't.

Whilst browsing the web I came across the Herve Leger show by Max Ariza in NY Fashion week. Herve Leger is daddy of the body-con and here is a quick summary of the show, the good and the bad.

I really like the nude tone in the dress above also the stitching detail adds an extra element of shape.

Crotchet is another big trend over the past few seasons. This dress incorporates harsh structure at the hips along with geometric crocheting.

Sheer panels always made an appearance in the collection. I feel this look has been done too much and will forever in my mind have an American Apparel-feel to it.

So in conclusion, my favourite part of the collection had to be the crocheting.
