J. Mendel's spring 2010 line was a successful foray into delicate fabrics, sculptural handicraft and structure, with a precisely feminine edge.
Shades of Venus De Milo were brought to mind with the delicate charmeuse, softly draped chiffon, and the exquisite sculptural handicraft seen in the tulles and organzas.
Sleek and sophisticated, J. Mendel’s spring 2010 line of sculptural handicraft and softly-luxurious fabrics could make even the trashiest of celebrities appear cosmopolitan and refined.
Implications - Looking at these dresses makes me think of some of the most famous 'hot mess' celebrities and the power one of these dresses could have to change their image one good award-show evening. I hope J Mendel's PR people are placing calls now.
