    I thought this was a very good debut for Michael Vollbracht. The collection was very youthful w/o being tarty and grown-up w/o being matronly. I think it will cater beautifully to Bill Blass devotees.

    Good debut, I agree as Astrid said, but I still have to be convinced he's capable of taking the reigns of this fabled American house. There are alot of Blass classics here and some pieces are amazing (for the social set, not moi :unsure: ) , but there were no imprints yet of his own style and lots of Valentino and de la Renta was seen in this collection, too.

    The next collection is a def must-see.

    Thanks, Astrid! :flower: :heart:

    i grew to like it more towards the end and I agree that I saw some de la Renta in here and would never ever wear this I think it suits the clientele.

    The hair is sort of typical Blass, no?

    Well, I think Vollbracht did a nice job. Then again, I'm a bit older than most people who post here, so I got a lot of inspiration. I'm a working person who doesn't have designer $$$, but it gives me ideas. I love the socialite looks.

    It was also cool to see Pat Cleveland and Coco Mitchell. Those are pioneering AfAm models. I remember Pat Cleveland from Fashion Fair layouts in Ebony. ;)

    Some beautiful dresses,some pieces look really oldfashioned too me.

    I do think they picked the right models for this show,they all have an aristocratic look that suits this collection :heart:

    He should have done more with the hair in my opinion.
