Adolfo Sanchez Fall 2011

Way back in February during NY Fashion Week I went to this event for the Nolcha Fashion Week at the Empire Hotel. First a little background on Nolcha Fashion Week- "Nolcha is an award-winning leading global platform advancing the business of independent fashion designers and retailers via social e-commerce, fashion week events and an educational video portal. (Nolcha Fashion Week.com). " The event was set up at the Empire Hotel rooftop bar and independent fashion designers had set up in little areas around the room showcasing some of their work. I was fortunate enough to meet a few talented fashion designers there two of them who I wrote about here were the duo from Abreu Rios and another designer Adolfo Sanchez. Sanchez is a Los Angeles designer who created his ready to wear woman's line back in 2006. He recently debuted his Fall 2011 line during the LA Fashion Week and thanks to Sanchez and his PR team they sent me a copy of the lookbook, which I have been dieing to share with you all! His collection is full of crisp sharp lines and plenty of details. Lots of pleating, leather details, and fur in this collection. One of my favorite looks is the leather detail dress with transparent sleeves and the pleated skirt paired with oversized fur purse. The leather detail to me really stands out paired with the elegant transparent sleeve and the pleated skirt. The sleeves and the skirt add a feminine effect against the edgy leather detail. This dress can be totally biker chicked out with leather military style boots or softened up with a simple pair of pumps or even a pair of vibrant red pumps. I also just love the oversize fur clutch called Magna-Oso, it's so unique and totally stands out on its own.

Another one of my favorites is the ballroom gown called Esti-Rosa. The one shoulder detail gives the dress character and interest, also the transparency in the top gives it a bit of edginess and sexiness without giving to much away. The movement in the skirt is quiet fluid and there really is nothing like a long elegant flowly ballroom gown. This is a dress that I can see being worn down the red carpet of the Oscars since it has everything a woman is looking for: sex appeal, edge, and a stand out detail.

This collection is all about edginess and sex appeal with low cut dress, short hem lines, and leather details. These looks could be soften up or taken to their full potential of biker girl chic. His dresses are what every woman needs, a good night out on the town dress. They are sleek and sexy with the perfect eye catching details that will show of your curves and flatter your body.

I can see his work being the go to dress for a night out with the girls or for a hot date. His dresses are fun, flirty, and sexy but have an edginess and a coolness to them. Men will apperciate the short hem lines and the flirty tops but woman will love the details, the cuts, and the way it shapes their body. To learn more about Adolfo Sanchez check out his website here.
