DC RUNWAY: Bouchra Jarrar Fall 2012 Couture
Bouchra Jarrar has been showing at Couture for six seasons and has yet to put a single beaded ball gown on her runway. That small detail told the whole story of the collection, which was notable for its new sense of femininity. Jarrar said: "Everything has a waist," "It's very constructed, but A-line and flared." A year ago, her jackets were boxy and her frocks were almost egg-shaped. Here, belts played a starring role, whether cinching dresses made from shirting stripe fabric or buckled over the black, peplumed bustier that topped a pair of gabardine pants. Women have fallen for Jarrar because she's given them something new to wear for work. This season, seduction is the order of the day. A silk gown in a lily print turned to reveal a plunging draped back. Another long dress was made from shifting layers of georgette and crepe de chine in black and a green she aptly called "very profond"; the effect was captivating.
