Donna Karan Fall 2012 Runway Review

No one can drape the way Donna Karan can – the designer could wrap a simple piece of fabric around a model’s body and she’d somehow make the seamless fabric look fantastic (and she's done this whilst being interviewed on a number of occasions). This season, Karan’s collection was brimming with gorgeous blanket coats and wraps, blanket-like dresses, kilt-like skirts, fringed shawls, and tailored suits. Fall 2012 then progressed into a distinctly menswear-inspired line-up.

The contrast between the loosely draped pieces that opened the show and the austerely tailored ones that followed was quite striking, but no matter the silhouette, the results were spot-on with a slew of truly breathtaking sculptural cocktail dresses.
