I started my Saturday at New York Fashion Week with the Jay Godfrey Fall 2015 Presentation with my mother as my lucky date. As we walked into The Pavilion, guests surrounded each one of the three displays where the mannequin-like models stood and changed their pose while tilting their heads from left to right every few thirty seconds.
“This a celebration day for me and it feels great,” said Godfrey of his collection. With his two beautiful daughters each holding one of his hands, the media swooning over his lovely collection that he worked so hard to create, we completely agree that it must certainly feel great.
Godfrey’s collection was sophisticated, yet sassy and chic. He developed a stretchy floral fabric and created it into a blazer matched with a pair of flare leg trousers, a high cut-out skirt, and a sleeveless gown. He also used marsala, the Pantone color of the year, for a few of his pieces, while incorporating colors such as orchid, black, and a black and gold plaid.
“We started the brand eight years ago with a desire to create beautiful, sexy tailored garments. We became known as this red carpet brand and this is me coming full circle. It’s definitely the most personal collection to date. My mom was born in London and this collection feels very Savile Row, but in a way that feels very feminine and modern to me,” added the designer.
My favorite garment from the collection was a black long sleeved and wide legged silk jumpsuit with a low square neckline. Godfrey added a touch of color by tieing a marsala sash around the model’s tiny waist. I also love the strapless charcoal thigh high cut-out gown. I adore the “peek a boo” effect of the gown that revealed the floral print that you could only see through the thigh high cut-out. All the models had their parted to the side and slicked into a low ponytail.
