NYFW Fall '12: Marchesa
There were four dresses at the Marchesashow that literally swept the toes of the front row, one of which even threatened to carry away Ingrid Sischy's phone, which she accidentally dropped on the runway. (She picked it up in the nick of time.)
That said, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig's second time showing their dresses in motion continued to take them in a more realistic direction. Reality is, of course, relative when you're making dresses for galas and Oscar ceremonies, but there was lots in the shorter and lighter category. Two lovely caped dresses probably had thousands of dollars worth of lace embroidery, but they had an almost girlish sweetness. There was even a cap-sleeved wool dress that could work for (gasp) day.
