Tanya Taylor’s Fall 2012 presentation at Exit Art marked her debut in the New York Fashion scene. To celebrate her debut, her Fall 2012 presentation was a proper tea party complete with macarons, scones, tea cakes and tea for everyone. Shoving macarons into my mouth between observing the various looks in Tanya Taylor’s Fall 2012 collection proved to be complete anti-girly girl bliss. I blame the macarons, personally. They make me do crazy things. Speaking of crazy, what’s crazy to me is that prior to the presentation, there wasn’t much to know about Tanya Taylor aside from a LinkedIn profile that revealed her time as an assistant designer at Elizabeth and James. After this tea party debut, I there’ll be much more to know about Tanya Taylor. Her gorgeous tea party-inspired Fall 2012 collection proves that you can trust people with a full name made of two first names.
Before I go on, let’s all take a moment to appreciate how cute this table full of macarons, tea-cakes and tea is — there were about 4 of these around:
As a fan of the ladylike direction fashion is making now, I was happy to see beautiful floral prints and a palette of black and gray splashed with shades of peach, pink, yellow and champagne. The silhouettes featured were very classic with a simplicity that reminds me a lot about the 60s. Think loose and great for any body type. Some beautiful detail shots for you:
There was still the usual menswear-inspired pieces (taylored pantsuits and trousers) but even those were made feminine looking with printed florals and softer fabrics. The use of different textures and fabrics was also very eyecatching — there were instances of wool jackets with pants bearing a shiny satin finish that was to die for!
Overall, a gorgeous collection that’s enough to satisfy the girliest of girls and those who tend to stray from girlish-looks.
Here are images I took from the presentation:
