NYFW Spring 2012 - Korto Momolu RTW Runway Review

From the first look - artfully draped billowy silk pants - to the last, Korto Momolu neatly summed up her forecast for Spring 2012. Draped silk dresses in orange and graphic black, cream and white prints lit up the runway, with chic separates and lace-infused dresses playing compelling supporting roles.

Dresses were offered in a range of lengths and styles - from a quietly glamorous asymmetric off-shoulder orange dress, to a layered mixed print floor skimmer with a bold black underlay. Necklines plunged in a tasteful v, with their downward descent seemingly interrupted by skinny orange belts. Restraint aside, dresses moved unhindered and shared the stage with more structured kimono-style shapes (a particular cream pleated dress was memorable), tailored pants, and a mini skirt.

Custom chunky beaded and Tuareg style Korto Momolu necklaces adorned necklines, while poofy mohawks with braided ponytails were the choice for hair. A dazzling display for all in need of sophisticated, unashamedly sexy, varied pieces, and a brilliant outing for Korto Momolu.
