Timing is everything, and Australian designer Jayson Brunsdon had the unfortunate distinction of showing his debut NYC Fashion Week collection after Zac Posen's stunning presentation. As a result, the crowd consensus was one of disappointment, but Brundson's clean lines and lusturous fabrics show promise for a debut offering that just lacked the right setting.

Brundson began his eponymous label after twenty years of experience in the fashion industry as a stylist and illustrator. In his artist's statement, Jayson said he is interested in "...channeling his vast knowledge into a line of day and eveningwear based on the lives and looks of iconic women with an aura of contemporary glamour."

His Fall 2007 collection was all about wool and silk satin combinations, with sharply curved seaming. The collection consisted primarily of elegant and subdued dresses made of contrasting textured fabrics that were rich, yet understated. His main color palette was teal, olive, mocha and copper, with a mix of modern patterns and handpainted illustrations. Skinny belts, stylish darts and seaming provided shape and interest to the eveningwear- Jayson Brundson is a designer that would make any girl feel pretty.
