Catherine Malandrino Combines Sporty With Victorian For Spring

Designer Catherine Malandrino's Spring/ Summer 2013 collection combined soft feminine pastels with sharp laser cut leatherwork. The presentation held at a loft  space on the outskirts of Chelsea, brought out  a strong crowd of true fashion gliterrati. Spotted were stylist June Ambrose, InStyle magazine's  Hal Rubenstein, Beyonce's stylist Ty Hunter, Style Network's Jenny Mai, Bergdorf Goodman's Linda Fargo and basketball player Amare Stoudmire's fiancee  Alexis Welch who does not look like a mother of three.  I've been in this industry long enough to know when a collection is buzzing and this was. The Malandrino show was a cohesive showstopper with strong red carpet pieces as well as great editorial looks  all the perfect combination a designer like Malandrino  seeks.
