Benjamin Cho- all I can say is whoa!

One of my favorite shows from fashion week, Benjamin Cho, Fall 2007. He chose incredible saturated colors, when everyone else was showing lots of grey and navy blue. I adore the giant geometric heart and gem adornments. All of it feels really wearable too, another huge bonus.

This last one with the hands "knitting" the dress as the model wears it feels like it's paying homage to a look from my one of my favorite films, George Cukor's 1939 masterpiece The Women. There's a techinicolor fashion show sequence with a model in a swimsuit covered up by an ivory colored cape that fastens closed with a mannequin's hand holding a silk rose, then opens to reveal a printed lining made up of hands holding roses, just like the outside closure. If you love fashion (especially of by-gone eras) run, don't walk, to see this film!
