United Bamboo Fall 2011 Fashion Show Review During Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New York

United Bamboo Fall 2011 CollectionStudio 450 on February 12, 2011, in New York City, United Bamboo showcased their Fall 2011 line bright and early that morning.  With the sunlight streaming through, models and stylists were busy at work creating just the right look for designers Miho Aoki and Thuy Pham, who were presenting their newest collection of coats, coat dresses, oversized cardigans, and jodhpurs, sprinkled with plaid, wool, and thigh high leather boots.  The styles were reminiscent of the 1930s with an updated feel.  There were varying hemlines with  dresses hemmed at the knee in black chiffon, thigh-length pleated plaid flapper-style dresses paired with hip-hugging ties, gray A-line cotton blend dresses with geometric stitching and circular thigh-framing pockets.  The styles were cohesive and flowed well (with what seemed like a common trend for the Fall 2011 runways in New York).  For fear of redundancy, the description of layered patch-quilted bohemia comes to mind.

United Bamboo was styled to appeal to conservative college coeds and all ranges of women (working, stay-at-home moms) in cold weather.  The gray stretch hose and platform wedges enhanced the look that designers Miho and Thuy managed to keep low key and down to earth.  The model’s hair and makeup, which was very understated, brought my focus on this collection and away from the models.

Sitting front row were Sean Lennon, musician Yuka Honda, musician Andrew VanWyngarden, and jewelry designer and actor Waris Ahluwalia.
