Borris Powell Views Fall 2011 In Red

Dear Fashionistas,

Borris Powell is the Chicago darling who won the Oscar Designer Challenge with his exquisite Black Swan Dress.  He may have been hanging back stage with Karl Lagerfeld at the Oscars but he is home now to his beloved city, Chicago.

Last Friday, BJP' hosted his Fall 2011 collection fashion show at the Sheraton Hotel.  It was a packed house! Standing room only for those trying to catch a glimpse at the last minute.   BJP showed us he is mad about plaid and the color red.  (London Calling?) The tartan look is topped off with a red wool cape which I absolutely adored.  The red evening dress shown above is a one-shoulder wonder with a figure flattering bodice and a flowing skirt.  It's a dress that will be sure to stop traffic.  

This will be BJP's first collection featuring separates and can be purchased at his studio at 2465 N Halsted Avenue or for more details.  

Ta Ta,
