On February 9, 2012, I attended the Fall/Winter runway show of Italian-born designer Danilo Gabrielli, during Nolcha Fashion Week: New York at the Alvin Ailey Studios in New York City. The designer has certainly come a long way since I covered his Spring/Summer 2012 show last season at Nolcha, where he had to share the runway with two other independent designers. This season, the spotlight was on Gabrielli alone, whose show attracted the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City, who were in attendance, along with a plethora of other Gabrielli supporters.
The F/W 2012 collection drew on references from the 1940s, by using wool and silk fabrics and modernizing popular trends from that era including demure pencil and a-line skirts, modified shoulder pads, pussy bow blouses and fur stoles. The looks were complementary opponents by somehow managing to be powerful, yet feminine at the same time. Unexpectedly, glamorous sparkling creations managed to surface and intertwine perfectly in between the sophisticated subdued hues of a majority of the fashion, making the collection effortlessly chic and stylish.
