Feminine is without doubt the first word that came to my mind after viewing the Karen Sabag F/W Show, which took place in the Altman Building in Chelsea.
The runway was generously laid out, an almost completely darkened room calmed down the buzzing crowd quickly.
Embrassing the female body by heavy fabrics, rich colors and well formed cuts seemed to be a continuous goal of this collection.
While the models moved swiftly down the long runway to soft beats, over 40 beautiful gowns, abundantly sequined, detailed with feathers and jewels, were presented to their full glory, except for a momentary black moment, when the lights failed.
Although it may have lacked an edgy or modern approach, it was inspiring to see a very classic and feminine collection, directed to women of all types and ages.
Accompanied by applause the model repeated her rather darkened walk.
