Georgine Fall 2015 Collection Review - Erté Meets Studio 54

As per the Georgine post show press release, the collection was inspired by “the spirit of the Weimar Cabaret in 1920s and 1930s Berlin, mixed with the romantic yet mod sensibility of 1960s British designers like Ossie Clarke and Biba”.



Yet, as I watched designer Georgine Ratelband debut her Fall 2015 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York, I felt immediately transported to 1979 and the VIP basement at Studio 54, where Bianca Jagger sipped champagne while chatting with Halston and Liza, and Warhol reigned supreme. Featuring an assortment of luxurious textiles including cashmere, silk, gold and bronze lame, hand painted graphic burnout velvet, and a rainbow display of brightly colored mid-thigh fox fur jackets, Georgine’s creations read both chic and opulent, and yet utterly accessible. 


Standout looks for me included:


Aubergine trench over hand painted velvet pants and champagne blouse


Gold patterned turtle neck over gold palazzo pants


Blue jacquard bomber jacket over luci embroidered dress


Plum hand embroidered gown


Green lame with mustard teddy and teal blue dyed Jonavon fox fur


The sexy afro-bob wigs, donned by the models, were Janet collection as styled by Ric Pipno for Melville Pipino Salon.  The make-up was designed by Gordon Espinet and the M.A.C Pro team, and the absolutely PHENOMENAL model casting was executed by Mao Public Relations.
