Carlos Miele Fall/Winter 2008

I know it's a shame for someone who blogs about fashion to admit, but I JUST discovered Brazilian Fashion designer Carlos Miele. His runway shows feature ready-to-wear fashion unlike most other designers, which I'm in love with.

His look is best defined as "highly structured and busy pieces, bold color combinations, plenty of patchwork, bias-cut sheer gowns, clingy silhouettes, plunging necklines, low backs, and jagged hemlines open to the thigh." (NY mag).

While watching the runway show I noticed his designs indeed include alot of simple looking dresses which gorgeous fabrics, spiced things up with very sexy, plunging back lines in intricate designs.
Another trend in this Fall/Winter 2008 collection his the use of greys paired with various shades of green and ruffles.

Check out clips from the runway show (; it's so worth the look because you get to see the backs..); it's divided in 2 parts below.

Favorite picks:

Thanks for the comment, on my blog!~

(One of) my grandmothers works in a store that sells a lot of different kinds of shoes, Pierre Dumas is one of them, so any shoes I have from that line have all been given to me as gifts from her. <3

Don't be embarrassed! Because I didn't know him either till I read this post! His work is absolutely gorgeous and sometimes I feel like these kind of designers need more of the spotlight!

BTW, would you like to do a link exchange with me?
