One of the biggest (and most perplexing) trends of F/W 10, has been the overabundance of velvet. Designers have sent models down the runways in velvet looks at almost every other show this season: particularly interesting was the amount of red velvet seen at the shows. Were designers craving cupcakes this season or is it simply a coincidence? MDC presents an overview of some of the season’s crimson and ruby looks – Tell us which designer / model pulls it off best and whether you’re loving this trend or hating it.

    I guess if I had to pick, I would say Nanette Lapore’s, but I really hate this trend. Altazurra and A. Wang are so terrible.

  2. Rini says:

    imo red velvet should only exist in cupcake form or on little girls wearing Christmas frocks with crocheted lace collars. Those are really the only acceptable forms.

  3. All about Models says:

    Yulia K rocks in Ralph Lauren. Same with Tetyana M at Antonio Baradi. I actually don’t like the jeans’s at Altazura.

  4. Icebattle says:

    Ughs include: Lauren, Posen (I know he’s a genius etc.), and Altuzarra. Love-love-love Wang and Berardi.

  5. Justice says:

    The Alexander Wang isn’t that horrible, but velvet isn’t a trend I want to see carry on.

  6. gaga says:

    Diaconu and Miller are rocking it !

  7. Neo says:

    Anja Rubik for Altuzarra, easy one.

    PS Congrats on the new content, I thought I was on style.com for a second when reading this piece!

    Anja @ Altuzarra

    Sessilee is OWNING the velvet straight-jacket…

  10. maricelle rivera says:

    Awful, I hate velvet. If needed I have one green velvet Betsey Johnson I wore circa. 1988 which I could pull poput in cas of emergency but I refuse to pay to wear velvet.. Not even for either one of my daughter during Xmas.

  11. Donald says:

    Siri at Altuzarra is absolutely lovely!

  12. viki says:

    o, please explain me why everybodys against velvet?
    personally i love it, cause it really has its own spirit
    not for everyday wearing but still hey.

  13. Joe says:

    I don’t particularly like any of it but if I had to pick one I would pick the Alexander Wang piece

  14. Mango says:

    Antonio Berardi!

  15. Calvin says:

    I’m not picking any one of these. I’ve never been a fan of velvet especially once it trickles down to mall retail stores like Express. It looks cheap and costumey to me! If I could ban one fabric, it would without a doubt be VELVET!


  16. J says:

    Velvet = DO NOT WANT

  17. Jimmy says:

    Altuzarra, Antonio and Alexander

  18. Zoe says:

    Altuzarra, Antonio & Wang… but other than the Alexander Wang I don’t see myself wearing any of these
    funny how designers often do the same thing at the same time

  19. Nathalie says:

    So nice!!!!!! this is fashion!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  20. Zain says:

    Very much with Calvin..
