Monique Lhuillier correction
I just wanted to clarify that Monique Lhuillier is NOT French born nor is she NY based. She was born in Cebu, Philippines to French-Spanish-Filipino parents. She is a Filipino designer who has made it big into the international fashion scene. (Another famous designer who is Filipino is Josie Natori)> Monique is based in Los Angeles where she also has her atelier. Thanks



Quote Libertyrose: Monique Lhuillier is another French-born, NY-based designer that I want to push. The checkered coat is amazing as is the orange belt. You may know her from Jamie Lee Curtis' revealing water-blue gown from the Oscars this year, but the majority of Lhuillier's work is much more refined. She started out from bridal wear and one of her dresses was featured in Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue this year. This is her first runway show, I believe.[/QUOTE]

libertyrose, if you were an ediatrix, i'd definitely subscribe: excellent looks. although i think that the prada group would twist your arm to include them in some way...maybe their beauty line? or the shoes? or even the menswear...

I thought the same, Softgrey. And Style.com also credits Lhuillier as an NY-based designer. I wonder if she'd have a higher profile now that she dressed La Spears for her wedding. But thanks for the info, Ingenue!

Mikejames, I loved Prada pre-2002 but I was not too taken with their recent collections, esp. their SS05 stuff. They still have excellent accessories, many of which were not on the runway, but I don't have enough photos to make an accessories ed.

And thanks to whoever that lurks on this board!

Two quick notes on Monique Lhuillier. Yes, she's based in L.A. and yes, she shows during NY Fashion Week. Also she was just mentioned in last Thursday's WWD:

Glamour Girls

LOS ANGELES — Designers here are no strangers to the effects of a jaw-dropping gown. So this season they’re referencing Hollywood’s greatest glamour gals, Rita Hayworth and Ava Gardner — ensuring, at the very least, a flashbulb-worthy future.

Wow, Libertyrose! Very impresive, I definately think you would make great editor the you planned everything.

If I were an editor I think I would make a music theme once with models wearing clothes that resembles the instrument they're posing with.
For models I would definately use someone like Hannelore Knuts (some sort of wind instrument), Maria Carla/Marina Peres (Guitar), Ai Tominaga (piano), Solange/Noot (strings), Ciara Nugent/Jaunel (brass instruments) and so on...
The whole thing would be shot by Paolo Roversi.
