Spring fashion already?

It's always amused me that the New York Fashion week in September is for the Spring collections. I get that they need time to make the clothes that are ordered but it still seems funny.

At fashion week Marchesa premiered its new underwater fantasy looks. The inspiration for the line came from a painting by Ilya Repin called "Sadko in the Underwater Kingdom."

The line is entirely gowns and evening wear and is full of mermaid shapes and"fish threadwork and oyster silk cording." Feathers were used to give an underwater flowy feel to some dresses and there was tons of scalloped edges and chiffon!

I am completely in love with a few dresses from the line (see below) and sincerely hope that this is the start of a big trend in fashion!
