No secret. I'm a fan. So when Korto Momolu sent around a post on Facebook about donating to a cause she was backing I checked it out. Since one of the "perks" of donating was access to the Live Feed for her show, of course I donated! According to the About Page for the donation, this will be Korto's last NYFW show for a while. She's starting a not for profit called "Gracie's Gift" which will help Liberian orphanages, and will have other fashion opportunities. But to see her LAST runway show for a while? Yes, of course I wanted to watch.
And watch I did. Then I lamented over the fact that my screen captures from the show were TERRIBLE and there was no way I could post them here and do Korto's (amazing, stunning, fabulous) prints and designs justice. I wrote an email to Korto and she politely and quickly responded with the images of her designs for me to share with you. How fabulous!!!
Let's have a look!
|I totally want to see more detail on this. It looks like the skirt could be really interesting and fun!|
|Sign me up for the fun boxy top!|
|Probably my favorite of the collection. This was a showstopper during the Live Feed. This picture does not do it justice.|
|Also a showstopper - just look at this rainbow print!!! It's gorgeous and the girl seriously worked it. Sadly the images I received from Korto did not include the top that she showed that was made out of the same print. Beautiful!|
|Easy to wear, but not my thing. Reminds me a bit of a smock.|
|When I see suits now I am reminded of my girl Lisa Scott at Beaute Box. I think she'd love this, but perhaps with a different color strip. Then again, Lisa surprises me in her tastes all the time. What do you think?|
|Such an easy-to-wear gown out of that same gorgeous print.|
|LBD!!! I like the straps.|
|This neckline can be difficult for some people (like myself) with large arms. But it's gorgeous on the right girl. Is that you?|
|I like this top but I'll be honest - I'm not sure I need the volume at my hips. On the other hand, I could love it. I'd have to try it and see. The neutral tone appeals to me, though.|
So what do you think? I'm in love with that white skirt black/yellow patterned top dress myself. There was another dress during the Live Feed that I loved (coral in color) that I didn't receive in images. Also the aforementioned rainbow print top. But over all, I thought these were very wearable and that a lot of people would love them. Kudos to Korto!
