All work and no play make for a dull girl indeed, so when I received an invitation to the Nicole Bridger show at Opus last Thursday, I welcomed the break from my work and writing deadlines. It was also a chance to catch up with fellow bloggers Carolina (Closet Full of Nothing), Anya (I'm the It Girl), and Niki (A Haute Mess) while admiring the latest spring/summer 2010 collection from Bridger. As with her previous collections, wearable draped silhouettes and a neutral colour palette were the most notable characteristics of the pieces overall. I really liked the unexpected details on pieces such as hidden pockets in skirts and dresses. Due to the fact that the lighting was poor and I was having too much fun to concentrate on taking pictures, I don't have very many to share from the show.
Opus proved to be a cozy chic venue and the show was a small intimate one. The "runway" was just a pathway cleared through the crowd for the models. This season's collection was inspired by concepts of community.
The designer herself. Nicole Bridger recently won the Design Forward award from Fashion Takes Action, a group devoted to promoting sustainability in fashion design. Congratulations on all your successes Nicole!
