Roland Mouret


Thank god for distant family connections! My cousin Daniel Marks who works in fashion public relations (he has his own company, here) came to NYC to represent one of his designers, Roland Mouret. Mouret's line has just been picked up by Bergdorf Goodman, and there was a little cocktail party in honor of it, and I GOT TO GO! Thanks to my amazing cousin! Yay! It was totally amazing, and I even got to try on his signature dress, which has been worn by numerous celebrities, including Victoria Beckham! Okay, enough with my jabber. Here are the pictures of me in the dress!

I wish you could see the back of the dress, it had beautiful details on the butt and an amazing EXPOSED ZIPPER!! Almost all of the clothes in his line with zippers had these beautiful-super-amazing exposed zippers =]

This is me and Mouret...oh did I mention I got to meet him?? He was soooo nice and he said I looked like a model in his dress! I felt so honored and happy =]

Here are two of the models in some of his dresses. You might not be able to tell, but the heels they were wearing were literally 6 inches tall.

Roland Mouret's line is all about pleats, creases, and accentuating the shape of the body. All of his clothes are very geometric and perfect to the t. They are very futuristic, and beautiful. A lot of parts of them resemble tuxedos and menswear ideas. After seeing these dresses in person, Mouret has quickly and easily become one of my favorite designers; I swear he is the next big thing!

I am jealous of many things here:
1) Your cool relatives. You go to NYC for this big designer's party, I go to Virginia for a PHD ceremony thing
2) You wore that amazing dress
3) You wore that amazing famous dress
4) Your wore that amazing famous dress well
5) You've been told by Roland Mouret that you look like a model

Ok, so on the count of 3, say "I wish I could be Tavi, for at least one day!" and I'll say "I wish I could be Zoe, for at least one day!" and I will be at peace and stop screaming into a pillow.

Ok, I'm normal now, and I can totally see Mouret's stuff being huge. Really huge. He is now a favorite designer of mine, thanks!
Sorry for the long comment...I'll stop.
