On September 27 and 28, YCS attended Atlantic City Fashion Week held at the Pier Shops at Caesar’s in Atlantic City, NJ. YCS checked out the ready-to-wear, plus sized, and couture runway presentations from a number of designers over the two-days. While some collections were disappointing and considerably non-cohesive, there were a few standouts, notably the collections presented by international designers Mitan Ghosh, Waisted Lace Corsets, and Suma Polepalli, and consignment/vintage shops Cultured Couture and Fab Finds. I also enjoyed checking out the children’s collections presented – though it’s hard to tell what was more adorable, the fashions or the tiny models strutting down the runway!
The international designers presented looks that moved effortlessly down the runway, applied a creative mix of “East and West” in their designs, and were showstopping. Mitan Ghosh and Suma Polepalli incorporated traditional garments like Saris into their collections with beautiful prints, colors, fabrics and details. The amount of time it must have taken to complete impeccable bead and crystal work is not lost on YCS. Waisted Lace Corsets’ were fantastical, beautiful, and often, practical. There were more than a few pieces I could see pairing with an adorable pencil skirt or pair of jeans for a night on the town. Cultured Couture presented looks that embodied the refined elegance I have come to expect from them. And Fab Finds did an excellent job of pulling together classic, elegant looks for all sizes from the clothes in their consignment shop.
The scene stealers, however, were the kids. The designs were cute, playful and adorable. Though, as an aunt to a 3 and 4 year old, I’m not sure how realistically wearable they were. Regardless, their models stole the show with their sass, spunk, and complete cuteness. Be warned, the pics and video are probably going to be too much to handle!
