Project Runway has made its mark on the fashion industry by¬†producing¬†some¬†extraordinary designers, including season 5 winner¬†Leanne Marshall. Fashion Mingle was thrilled to be invited to see the Leanne Marshall NYFW collection. Fashion Week¬†is nothing new for¬†Marshall, who has presented regularly since her reality TV win in 2008. Needless to say, I was excited to see what she had in store for us with her¬†Spring / Summer 2017 collection!
The Leanne Marshall NYFW collection was highly anticipated, as she is no stranger to the lime light of the fashion industry. She has been featured¬†in many major publications, such as the New York Times, People, Elle, National Geographic. Marshall has shown collections at¬†New York Fashion Week¬†and other fashion weeks across the globe.
For the¬†Spring / Summer 2017 Leanne Marshall NYFW collection, smoke began to pour from the entrance of the runway as the first model appeared.¬†Adorned in brilliant pale blues, the first stage of the Leanne Marshall NYFW¬†collection was¬†etherial and breathtaking. Gowns ranged¬†from flowing to form fitting, and in shades of pastel and darker orange. As the show went on, the color pallet¬†transitioned once again to gowns of pale purple and deeper blues. A continuing trend of lace and sheer fabrics accented the collection. What started off as ready to wear quickly moved into couture gowns that would be a statement piece for any occasion.
Leanne Marshall took to the runway with the model wearing her final piece,¬†and the applause were thunderous. All in all I have to say that Leanne‚Äôs collection was breath taking. The color pallet gave a¬†nod to¬†the fall season, however the designs kept¬†true to the more breathable and comfortable trends¬†of the spring and summer months. Leanne Marshall continues to impress long after her Project Runway win, and I can’t wait to see what this innovative designer will showcase in the future.
