Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012 RTW



I must say today was the first I have seen or heard of Miss Lhullier. She started as a Bridal Gown designer in 1996. She with the help of her husband launched her RTW line in 2003. These are very seductive designs, made for the Red Carpet. The collection pays homage to The Year of The Dragon with vibrant red, black and prints in sequins, silks and leather. If you pay attention to the details of the pieces you’ll see the craftsmanship is given the same precision as her bridal gowns.

Tupac’s.

With 2 of the big 3 sports leagues maybe having lengthy work stoppages this year, fans need to be very patient.
