One of our Fashionista 15, Victor de Souza did not disappoint at his Spring 2011 runway show last night at an intimate gallery space in the garment district. Although he's worked in the fashion industry for several years, he is just starting to make a name for himself with his eponymous line of women's wear. And we aren't the only ones who have taken notice. The space, though small, was completely full with, well, some random people and family and Amanda Lepore, but also several editors including Elle's Kate Lanphear.
I was a little tired after a long day of fashion week prep, but these clothes definitely woke me up. If Lady Gaga hasn't already worn Victor de Souza, she will. The collection was mostly evening wear with a few odd bodysuit things mixed in. What really wowed me...or maybe just freaked me out...were the unexpected, bold uses of color and the impossible structure of some of the gowns. Also, apparently we aren't done with the huge shoulder thing yet, at least Victor isn't. Then, there was the hot pink ball gown (seen above) that closed the show and barely even fit on the runway, which I think I actually gasped upon seeing. Click through for more.
