Fashion Week: Rachel Roy

September 14, 2009 by Lila Delilah

All of Rachel Roy’s collections seem to reflect an uptown sophistication not unlike her own. Her latest designs are elegant, strong and polished and balance the like of a 40’s screen legend with a strong 90’s business woman.

Rachel Roy Spring 2010

Who is the customer: An uptown girl who never forgets to be polite and say thank you. Boldface names include, Oprah Winfrey, Ivanka Trump and Niki Taylor.

Why buy: You’re strong and sexy but always centered and relaxed even in the most stressful situations.

What to buy: The shoes, Rachel Roy for Manolo Blahnik, are insanely striking. Next, go for the short skirts and wide-leg pants. There’s no reason why business and sexy can’t go together.

Bypass: Plunging necklines with no camisole. You can only be so sexy in a boardroom.

Overall contribution to fashion: Rachel’s collection was strong and serious but very feminine.The power suit is easily transformed into the beauty suit because there is nothing more sexy than an strong, sexy, driven woman with brains.
