NYFW: Jenny Packham and Her Painting Perfect Gowns

Jenny Packham, a favorite designer of Kate Middleton, showed a F/W 2015 RTW collection inspired by Spanish artist Raimundo de Madrazo Garreta, who was known for painting portraits of women of high society in luxurious fashion during the 19th century. Possible inspiration could have been this painting, entitled “Portrait of Mrs”, showing an unknown woman in an opulent brocade gown with lace detailing and satin shoes.

The result in Packham’s collection is beautiful – intricate detail work in beads, pearls and crystals on simple yet elegant silhouettes.
