In the words of Women's Wear Daily, "The wildly frizzed hair that flew back as the models walked suggested Seventies; the three billowing ballgowns under lace tops that opened the show, Eighties (the good part). But 60-some exits later, a fair conclusion was that Oscar de la Renta’s finest hour might be right now. Never a champion of restraint, for spring de la Renta offered a joy fest that was as beautiful and exuberant as it was diverse. Various parts will appeal not only to women of different ages, but different types — proper ladies, debutantes, sex pots, even girls with a Bohemian streak."
From Women's Wear Daily, "An underwater fantasy painted by Ilya Repin and the drawings of Ernst Haeckel inspired Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig’s collection for Marchesa. And it was dazzling... The play of sheer with embroidery and overlays of tulle floating on second-skin sheaths was masterful... These clothes are far from subtle, but they were never intended for the faint of heart."
