After attending the Spring 2011 shows in NYC it is clear to me that fresh, minimalistic, yet still refined & chic is on trend & here to stay! Isoude designer Katie Brierley exudes that with her Fall 2010 collection that I had the upmost pleasure of seeing last week at Plain Clothes in Homewood. First off, the designer, Katie is divine, so personable, & a true artist. Proof of her artist mastery are her hand painted fabrics, her luxe cashmere dresses & capes, and most excitingly…her gown being featured in NYC’s Fashion Institute of Technology Museum!!
Now begin your lust for the Isoude Fall 2010 Collection, I sure as hell did! In Katie’s own words this collection is representative of purity, strength, walking one’s own path, & as always a modern yet feminine feel.
The perfect evening gown. This is the kind of dress you would have forever. Classic yet easily made ‘trendy’ with a patent leather skinny belt. Katie & I also giddily chatted about how lovely these evening gowns would look paired with Hunter wellies at a chic country party…especially her evening gown in a plush velvet!
This photo does not do the color or fabric of this cocktail dress justice. This lush, rich burgundy dress hugs a woman in all the right places.
All hand-crafted. Katie is a true American couturier!
OK…my absolute obsession…the burgundy cashmere cape lined in a sumptuous silk…ohhh & made complete with pockets! I literally could live in this cape…like sleep, work, eat, etc. in it!
Haha I wasn’t kidding, love this cape!

She is so easy to work with & as I said a true artist so she can create pieces that fit you better than any ready made piece you could pick up at a department store. And when your clothes fit right, your day is instantly made a million times better-trust me!
