Alise Marie  NY Fashion Week Fall 2005

Fashion Ledge - Alise Marie
Alise Marie first made the fashion world take notice last season with her spring collection. With 2005, once again her effortlessly stylish designs capture the glamour and drama of vintage-inspired fashion reminiscent of Old Hollywood. The day and eveningwear designs evoke a range of attitudes…from flirtatious siren to feminine sensuality. Lush colors and sumptuous fabrics are provocative, stirring instant emotional response…think “retro chic”.

Alise Marie Fall 2005 recalls the past with a vintage timelessness that contrasts the old with the new for a fresh, modern edge. Her rich fabrics include beautiful sheared velvets, luxurious silks, and cashmere styles in burnished gold and beige hues, deep plums, emerald greens and garnet reds. The best of these vintage-inspired pieces come with lashings of detail: delicate belting, bold faux fur trims, and unique antique buttons.

Alise Marie’s wide range of silhouettes includes fluid chiffon dresses, tweed pencil skirts, well-cut sculpted jackets, demure dresses with wrap coats and sexy pant looks. All the Alise Marie touches are there – angular silhouettes, intricate detailing and unique fabrications. The look is retro-modern with hints of that lusty spirit of Hollywood’s greatest glamour gals…Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner and Jean Harlow. Alise Marie has always been inspired by the mysterious combination of adventure and sensuality that is part of the femme fatale experience.

Masterful tailoring in this collection is precise and dramatic. Alise Marie’s pants are a brilliant mix of masculine and feminine…look for high-waisted 40’s styles and drapey velvet styles with ankle details. Charming short little jackets and long fluid cashmere coats pair with racy evening dresses for red carpet glamour. The creamy silk chiffon Harlow-style evening gown with matching cropped jacket is cut to the curve of the body…this design has the effect of a jaw-dropping gown.

Alise Marie’s 2005 Collection captures her essence: the easy elegance and timeless glamour of vintage-inspired fashion.
