Farah Angsana Fall 2012
Farah Angsana‘s heavy on evening wear Fall 2012 collection featured lots of gowns: strapless, empire cut, sheath, floor length, knee length and different variation of a cocktail dress. The collection was full of details like crystal embroidery, sequin embellishments, sparkly shoulders and lace detailing. As well as a small section of well tailored suits and eye-popping colors like tangerine orange and scarlet red.
Before Farah Angsana’s runway show began, we went backstage to get a glimpse of the models hair and make-up. To put emphasis on the elaborate gowns, Farah opted for a subdued look for hair and make-up. And, featured only bright red lips. As one of the make-up artist explained, “we created nude eyes with slightly defined brownish tone in the crease and a champagne color to make it stand out with lots of lashes and mascara, black cat eyeliner and a beautiful peachy cheek.”
Dashing Diva, lead by Pattie Yankee gave the show a nude nail in three different shades including Boarding School, a brown opaque crème, Season Tickets, a beige semi-sheer crème and Trust Fund, a brown/beige opaque crème. As Patty explained, the nude color “really goes well with everything.”
The looks complemented the designs and boy she deliver. Farah Angsana set the show off with a heavily bejeweled strapless high-low gown with a stiff gazar cutaway skirt that mimicked a blossoming flower. The show then progressed on to more jetsetter gowns for any occasion.
Favorite pieces include–the uber sophisticated black wool blend suit with the front bowtie and the ivory wool crepe notched v-neck peplum blouse with cap sleeves with the matching skirt; the tangerine silk chiffon gown was beautiful and the color was quite exquisite.
The scarlet silk crepe long sleeve gown was literally awe-inspiring from the screams of excitement from the audience members. Another crowd pleaser included the evergreen ruched silk chiffon gown flowing graciously behind as the model glided down the runway revealing a very high split.
The final piece, a Shanghai blue dragon scale gown, was a bit too revealing for my taste. It was a completely sheer, strapless tulle column gown, embellished with a few strategically placed shimmering peacock feathers. Evening the model looked uncomfortable in the dress that left little to the imagination. –-Ayanna Barton
