Jill Stuart rocked her Fall 2009 show at New York Fashion week with a collection that the designer herself says was inspired by “iconic women of music.”
Some of sartorial muses included French musician Françoise Hardy, Anita Pallenberg (actress who dated Keith Richards), American singer Stevie Nicks and Madonna.
The first part of Jill Stuart’s Fall 2009 collection was a splendid sea of ink black couture, with leathers and velvets and a hint of delicate lace (it is in style, you know).
“In the latter camp was an ivory tailcoat on Marina Peres, worn, as most looks were, with a tilted fedora topped with lace flowers that immediately said: Bianca—Mick—wedding day,” Style.com said of Fall 2009 Jill Stuart runway show.
Jill Stuart introduced pastel flower toward the end of her show, but not without adding an edge to a few looks, like the wrist-length black rocker gloves paired with the flowing pastel mini.
