Key Takeaways: Project Alabama started the show with a series of fitted black and navy outfits that mesh with fashion’s current trend towards minimalism. However, the show turned more colorful with geometric and botanical prints on the same basic silhouette: fitted on top, full on bottom. Visually, the prints gave an ethnic feeling to the collection, a trend that’s somewhat tired after a couple of seasons on the runway.
Color Palette: Black and Navy, with additions of Yellow, White, and Red.
Silhouettes: A slim waistline, scoop necklines, and full skirts. Belted looks.
What’s Wearable: The fitted bodices and full skirts are generally flattering. Project Alabama’s minimalist black dresses are especially on-trend.
What’s Not Wearable: Like at Luca Luca, multiple loud prints in the same outfit.
