I recently had the opportunity to attend a Venexiana runway show that was part of the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week for Fall 2011. The show taught me about my personal tastes for feminine style.
Venexiana founder/designer Kati Stern infuses her look with rock music. After a little tease of classical music, the show kicked into high gear withthe Smashing Pumpkins' song Geek USA (a track off one of my favorite albums, Siamese Dream). I was already loving this show... The Clash and Misfits songs reinforced my love.
Venexiana was edgy, but elegant. My favorite look was a purple gown with a print that looked like a grape vine, gold trim and an over the shoulder strap. Stern's designs seemed to flow gloriously with the model's strides (pretty hair has a tendency to do this in wind, mesmerizing us guys).
One such dress was a green satin-ish gown with a "train" which my date described as fabric that is attached to a dress to extend it (I guess like a wedding dress).Read More »from Venexiana: Edge Meets Elegance
