Catwalk Fashion Show LAMB New York SS2011
Singer, fashion designer and mother of two, Gwen Stefani, presented her new collection as the closing show of New York Fashion Week on Thursday. After several seasons of smaller presentations her brand LAMB (Love, Angel, Music, Baby) was back on the main stage.
Her designs for next summer were inspired by African tribal looks. ‘I’ve always wanted to do the tribal thing but it’s pretty hard to get right. I think we’ve got it’, Gwen said. She sent out colorful, printed clothes on the runway, that indeed felt like Africa, especially with the changing backdrop of colorful skies.
The African inspired mixed prints were alternated by checks and stripes. Though the prints were traditional, the fitting of the clothes and the accessories like hats and bags made it all seem very modern.
The collection was both feminine and tough; there where flirty dresses and ruffled shoulders, but also suits and manly pants combined with short tops. Every outfit very much breathed Gwen’s personal style and there wasn’t one look she wouldn’t wear herself.
All of No Doubt, her hubby and her two suns were there to support Gwen. Son Kingston was so proud he ran on stage at the end of the show to walk the catwalk with his mummy. O, what a heart-warming ending of a great New York Fashion Week.
