Fashion Week's Designer of the Day: Miss Sixty

0_21_Miss_Sixty_internal

Miss Sixty is a label known for quirky styles that speak to the bold fashionista who isn't afraid to stand out from the crowd.

And this season's fun and refreshing show did not disappoint. In fact, it was FOXNews.com's winner of the "Designer of the Day" award for Sunday February 15.

Miss Sixty's shows at Fashion Week are consistently among the favorites for editors and celebrities alike. This season drew Mischa Barton, Kristin Bell, and Minka Kelly- now among the Miss Sixty hall of fame that includes fashion heavy hitters such as Demi Moore, Chloe Sevigny, Ashley Olsen, Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Milla Jovovich, and many, many more.

For the Fall/Winter 2009 collection, Creative Director and Co-Founder Wichy Hassan plunged into the 80's with a collection inspired by the decade's edgy, motorcycle-chic style combined with playful femininity and, of course, lots of attitude.

Denim was the common thread pulling this eclectic collection together with an array of washes and silhouettes from super skinny to loose and slouchy.

The collection marked a return to hyper-feminine 80's styles where excess was key and anything and everything could be mixed and matched.

Some looks were marked by loaded-on layers, while others stayed minimal, with fitted-waistlines accentuated by fierce corset-style belts.

The 80's-party-girl spirit was captured with super-mini dresses and show-stopping prints while the biker soul was referenced through the use of leather and edgy studs in gold, silver, and bronze.

As is often the case for fall, black abounded but with the 80's as a theme, bold colors in striking shades of electric blue, violet, fuschia, and orange found their way into the fabulous mix.

Overall, this show was a fabulous celebration of glamour, femininity, and eccentricity which perfectly captured the spirit of a decade filled with vitality, optimism, and statement-making styles.
