Fall 2009 - Charlotte Ronson and BCBGMAXAZRIA RUNWAY PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen   

BCBGMAXAZRIA DesignThe Fall and Winter 2009 Collections of Charlotte Ronson and BCBGMAXAZRIA RUNWAY as seen from the American Express® Skybox during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

 

 

When I attend the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week shows, I like to be where the action is, which is sitting inside the Promenade, Tent, or in the Salon at Bryant Park where the shows are held. No matter how large the show, and how crowded they may be, there is something thrilling about being there front and center when the models take to the runway.

With that said, for the back-to-back Charlotte Ronson and BCBGMAXAZRIA RUNWAY shows, Edward and I decided to do something different, and view the shows from the lofty American Express® Skybox which provided American Express Platinum Card® and Gold Card members with the opportunity to be a part of the insider world of fashion by purchasing American Express Premium Access tickets to attend the fashion shows, which are otherwise reserved for members of the industry, celebrities, and other invited VIPs.

Of course, not sitting in the Promenade did not provide us with the opportunity to mingle with Lindsey Lohan and the other celebrities sitting in the front row of the show, however the fact that the very personable, and funny, actress Valerie Bertinelli who had modeled for the Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection 2009 in the morning, and was sitting up in the Skybox with us enjoying the show, more than made up for it, and her bubbly personality added to the festive, party atmosphere as she happily chatted with the other Skybox members.

Charlotte Ronson at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York February 20091930s and 1940s music set the mood for the Charlotte Ronson show, which featured 40 looks in her Fall and Winter 2009 Collection. Designer Charlotte Ronson had her models take to the runway with music provided by her DJ sister, Sam Ronson, with the first model strutting the runway to the 1942 song, "Why Don't You Do Right," wearing a Black zipper coat with black knit skirt and matching sweater, and tall black bomber boots to open the show.

Music continued with the 1933 song "It's Only a Paper Moon," followed by the 1939 song "In the Mood," the 1942 song "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," and the 1941 song "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," as the models wore high-waist shorts, high-waist pants, fringed pants, skinny pants, silk jumpsuits, pencil skirts, paisley and printed dresses, stonewashed sweatshirts, short blazers, and one-shoulder looks from her collection, which featured a mostly black color palette with sprinklings of green and blue, and orange plaid, with black leather as the focal point of the collection, interspersed with wool boucle, rayon, silk, satin, and lace.

Max paid special attention to details at the shoulders and the waists of his designs in the collection, utilizing long zippers as accents, and sexy back glimpses that added a level of sophisticated playfulness. Sleeve lengths, as well as hem lengths varied greatly throughout the collection, providing a wider range of appeal across the fashion spectrum.

Although the fashion experience was different sitting up in the American Express® Skybox for the Charlotte Ronson and Max Azria BCBGMAXAZRIA RUNWAY shows, nonetheless, it was an exciting, and definitely pleasurable way of experiencing the fashion shows.
