DSquared2′s Teenage Dream – Well known for collections with quirky themes, the fall 2012 showing from DSquared2 designers Dan and Dean Caten went back in time for their own take on 1960′s high school fashions. Opening with modified versions of the pencil skirt, knitted cardigan and cigarette pants, models walked the runway with cigarettes in gloved hands and teased tresses. A color palette of powder pink, forest green, canary yellow and light blue transformed into black as the Catens took on evening wear or “prom fashions”. Black, slinky gowns adorned with jewelry and sparkling sequins closed the show for a more sumptuous take on the upcoming autumn.
House of Holland’s Electric Fall – For fall 2012, House of Holland’s Henry Holland sent out an array of colorful patterns in primary colors.

The flirty silhouettes were matched with patterned stockings or socks and chunky, platform heels. For beauty, models walked down the runway with bright red lips and messy ponytails reflecting the carefree spirit of autumn.
Slip into Fall – For fall 2012, Vera Wang embraced slinky silhouettes in autumn hues of wheat, marmalade, blue and ink black.

For the finale, Wang matched crystal-adorned bodices with airy fabric for an almost bohemian effect.
Candy Couture – Elie Saab presented a romantic collection of ivory and pastel hues of powder blue, rose and wheat for his spring 2012 haute couture show in Paris earlier today.
