Brooklyn Fashion Week(end) – Badass Pretty Clothing

On the evening of Saturday, September 29th, I attended the 2013 Spring/Summer shows at Brooklyn Fashion Week{end} (BKFW) at Industry City at Bush Terminal in Sunset Park. Over the course of four days, BKFW gives emerging international and local designers a platform to showcase their work, while supporting charities. Proceeds from this year’s event benefit The Paul Robeson Theater, The SCIP program and Soles4Souls®.

At Saturday’s show, one presentation that absolutely blew mind was Melissa Squire’s line, Badass Pretty Clothing. Models donned outfits that looked like 1950s pin-ups got together with rocker chicks from the 1980s and decided to start a clothing line. This, as it turned out, was a very good thing. There was nothing bland or ordinary in this show. Vivid colors, fun prints and peek-a-boo lace detailing made for an exciting parade of fashions on the runway. Dresses that looked very sexy, all of a sudden became sweet, as models turned around to reveal cute, unexpected bow detailing on backside of the clothing. The fashions in this line are over-the-top and playful, but still very wearable. All of the items can be dressed up with accessories and heels, or made casual with funky jewelry and layers. I should also point out that a lot of the dresses are actually reversible, so you get two outfits for the price of one. The collection is, as the name of the line says, pretty badass.
