Passion for Fashion

I attended Shanel Regier's Fall 2007 fashion show in Milwaukee this past weekend. The crowd was young, well dressed and the drinks were flowing. And once again, the show didn’t disappoint. The large, open hall had a runway right down the middle of the room and models could be seen up close strutting their stuff. Regier’s chosen color scheme was more subdued and reflected chillier temps: black, brown, taupe, mint green and cream. Once again, Regier incorporated ruffles (one of her favorite design elements to use) and fitted silhouettes, but inserted a few flowy, oversized shapes too. Looks ranged from a swingy mint-green overcoat to a seductive (and see-through) black lace top with black silk pants. My show favorites included the swingy overcoat, a sweet tailored shirtdress with a flounce on the bottom and the beautiful one-of-a-kind dresses that opened the show constructed of brilliant green and brown silk. A few of Regier’s corset tops were even spotted on audience members who are no doubt loyal fans of the designer.
