There was a beautiful range of fabrics which is what stood out the most to me. The range of black, cream and gold, as well as navy, sage and lavender was elegant but in a very refined way. The show featured several dresses in this striking gold.
But I loved the patterns...
This mix of colors was lovely in person.

This very sparkly dress was a bit of a stand-alone during the show but you had to admit it jumped out at you.
The burned out velvet was a great contrast to the lightness of the skirt.
I need a place to wear a big princess-y skirt like this.
While most of the dresses were longer and more formal, I loved this sassy dress with the two-tier ruffles
But the showstopper of the night was this lavender and black dress. It's hard to tell in a still image but this dress moved! Those tiers were amazing and I was in awe. I need a good long entrance, a party to wear it to, and that dress. I mean, damn!
I don't have nearly enough opportunity to dress formal anymore but just knowing there are dresses like these out there makes me happy.
