Two words to describe Falguni and Shane Peacock's Fall 2012 collection: Couture Rockstar. Holy hell I was amazed by this collection. I don't know what I was expecting from this married duo since I really didn't know much about them...but this was not definitely not it. This runway show by far had the best music and was the most fun. Skrillex "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" sent the models down the runway and had me rocking out in my seat. It totally matched the vibe of the clothing- edgy, rock 'n roll, sexy, couture...The collection was filled of sheers, embellishments, and feathers with drastic eyebrows and deep eyeliner. Their design plays with layers of fabric and peaks of sheerness. There is so much detail that goes into each piece and it all looks amazing going down the runway but I really got to appreciate it even more after check out the pictures. My favorite looks were the very last look with the cat suit that had jewel embellishments and a feather sheer tail (I caught this final look on my phone and is now the background) and the deep v-neck jumper. I'm not sure where I would be going in these but I think I could totally rock them out.

After doing my research this whole collection makes sense to Falguni and Shane Peacock design aesthetics, they have designed pieces for Britney Spears (seen in Hold It Against Me and Till the World Ends video), Ashanti, Keri Hilson, and other rather sexy songstresses. So this rocker edge is not surprising to their whole design aspect at all...just to me...the newbie. And I'm loving them for it!
