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.
