More from Aspen Fashion Week….

Yesterday was the wrap up of the shows and in-store events.  Authier got a good review for its energy.  Unfortunately, I missed it due to the fact that the show went on much earlier than planned!  It’s kind of ironic, since all of them start at least 20-30 minutes late, which is more the the norm.  So a lot of us simply missed it…oh well, more room for photos from the kinetic KJUS show, with its fun mixing of colors, and innovative fabrics.  This year they produced a thin translucent cover layer for the dyed down that lay underneath…it’s even water resistant!   No more drowning in your down jacket during a snowstorm!  The showstopping finale show was Finnish designer Wille Rajola’s collection, called DUOHTAVUOHTA…don’t ask me how to pronounce it…. of the most fantasy-like creations using leather and fur,,,Finnish raccoon naturally…..jackets, coats and full length skirts, augmented by gala-ready crinolines.  His line reminds me of a princess from the remote northern regions of Scandanavia…coming out of her isolated castle to meet her prince…and doesn’t a girl always harbor some form of that dream in her heart?….Rajala’s line feeds into that fantasy with great opulence and glamour.  His are the perfect gowns to be married on stylish and majestic Aspen Mountain.  I heard that very comment from a few of the enraptured women at the end of the show….ah, yes.
