The Emerald City

Trend by Contributor – Dartanya

Oz the Great and Powerful movie may have been the shift to the color Emerald this year? The Pantone Color Institute named Emerald as the color of the year 2013. The runway may not have been the yellow brick road but the emerald city was skipping down the runway.

The Wizard of Oz has yet inspired another movie and fantasy on the fall runway. Emerald was seen in designer collections such as Monique Luhuillier, Caroline Herrera, Celine, Erdem and many others. The emerald jewel tone is stunning and the clarity of its presence will not go unnoticed.

Monique Luhuilliers fall presentation was magical. It brought the fantasy of Oz to life. Two toned chiffon dresses swooped across the runway. Sheer beaded dresses with dramatic breathtaking details and touches of lace, digital printed fabric and brocade appeared in the collection.

Lhuillier stated “So I wanted this girl to be super sexy. It’s dramatic, mixed in with a little Art Deco, and just really intense colour and intense structure.” The collection was very glamorous and had a wondrous flight of imagination. The road to the Emerald city has never been so lovely.

Day gloves, long skirts, fur caps and long body clinging gowns graced Carolina Herrera’s runways. Her inspiration seemed to be inspired by the 30’s and 40’s classical starlets from the glam days. The models dressed in stunning gowns looked like old Hollywood glamour dolls.

The big screen has always made an impact on fashion. This powerful statement of sex appeal and feminine power like the Witches of Oz is empowering for women everywhere and Carolina shows she knows how to cater to women.
