Hervé Léger At NYFW

Designer Herve Leger's Fall/Winter 14 runway show during New York Fashion Week.

This was one of our favorite New York Fashion Week F/W 14 collections so far. Okayafrica favorite Hervé Léger  captured his audience with outstanding designs. It looked like a female army took the runway by storm in his latest show, as the models strutted down the catwalk with a powerful presence. Paired with immaculate staging, the collection featured corset belts, leather jackets topped with fur, and feathers as sleeves, amongst other genius statements. The collection follows Leger's  previous one with another level of je ne sais quoi. From head-to-toe, meticulous attention had been paid to every detail— from the high long ponytails to the high-knee boots. Most of the dresses and skirts came to the knee, showing some skin without feeling absolutely out of winter control. As to the fashionistas who wore bare legs with stilettos in the snow... no comment. Overall, it was a great collection presented by a great designer  that'll certainly be a great asset for next season. Scroll through our gallery to above.
