Alexander Wang at New York Fashion Week

I almost leapt with joy when I saw pictures from Alexander Wang's show from New York Fashion Week. Wang's spring summer 2013 collection showed a whole array of cut out detail on dresses, with sexy slits everywhere.

If you have been following my blog closely then you will remember that I am a fan of the cut out dress or "Peeping Tom" as I like to call it. 

Although I love this style, I thought that it would have its fashionable moment and then peak, resulting in women going back to wearing "normally" tailored dresses.

But, if Wang's spring summer 13 collection is anything to go by then cut out dresses are here to stay, at least for another season or two.

Indeed, Wang's collection presented an interesting assortment of cut out details, with slits that can be traced from the model Erin Wasson's thigh up to her chest.

This, accompanied by cut out detail around her neck and a vertical slit running down the dress, creates a very striking look. This is the way that a modern Grecian goddess would be styled (if there was such a thing). 

With lots of sexy slits and cut out detail in all the wrong places, Wang knows that the modern woman no longer wants to wear simply tailored dresses with a conventional look. 

If Cinderella was around today she wouldn't want to wear a ball gown. She would want to jazz up the proceedings in a Wong style dress with slits in all the wrong but actually RIGHT places!


  1. How did you find out about this designer? I love love how modern the designs are. x

  2. There's a lot of press surrouding Alexander Wang's spring summer 2013 collection at New York Fashion Week. This is because people love his collection and also Liberty Ross modelled in his show (for the first time since the affair scandal), which gave the show some publicity. I also love Wang's designs too, they have a very futuristic feel to them.
