Fashion Design Is So Easy - Even a Housewife Can Do It

Last Season Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta Sheree Whitfield humored the world when she showcased her fashion sketches as a preview to her She by Sheree collection. Fast forward a year later to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring 2010 and what do we have here: Ms. Whitfield actually remembered to bring along some pieces! Her presentation party took place yesterday morning in Soho.

Hues of blue, black and yellow were on display. Some pieces included a banana yellow skirted corset, a black lace corset tucked into a sapphire blue satin skirt and a bubble-hemmed little black dress. Word has it that there were mixed reactions. While some cheered, others jeered. Andrea Mandell reported reactions from the spectators:

“All the clothes were wrinkled,” noted an attendee, “I guess they didn’t steam them. I like the colors though.” “And the accessories,” her friend interjected.

One can't help but to wonder; what was the inspiration behind this collection? Sheree's collection preview was ok for Bravo but not worthy of being shown at Bryant Park. There was nothing new - nothing inspirational. It'll pass; however, it was certainly missing that je ne sais quoi!
