Glam Rock Ladies

London…Julien Macdonald

Keeping in tune with New York design directions, Macdonald looked at the evolution of his client from younger looks to higher degrees of sophistication. His party days are over and his focus has shifted to work and world issues. He said, “I’m just working really hard, nonstop. All I’ve ever wanted is to make women feel glamorous and amazing when they walk into a room.” Keeping with his glam-rock standard but maintaining a chic statement, streamlined suits and grey jersey dresses saw a new addition of big-shoulders. Crystal embellished cobweb knits and innovative cables looked similar to Balmain’s long-sleeved mini dresses for spring.
