FALL 2018 READY-TO-WEAR Thom Browne


 Looks like Thom Browne set up his show space like an art studio last month, with an all-female model army lined up at easels along the runway. The idea, as Browne put it, was to imagine “Vigée Le Brun painting a vision of what she wanted to be in the 21st century.” The 18th-century artist was a trailblazer, rising to fame and fortune as Marie Antoinette’s official portraitist in a fiercely male-dominated milieu. She would no doubt have been completely enthralled by the subversive tableau of feminine power that Browne conjured tonight. As the lights went up on the first looks Madonna number one dance song "Vogue" bellowed from the speakers. Setting the tone of the runway show.  The silhouette strong shoulder, padded hip, and nipped waist is classic. It lade the frame work that Browne is know from though-out his collections. The sexy anatomy of a dress that has been pulled apart several this season, though only Browne could reconstruct it such femininity and beauty. Floor length gray flannel dress came embroidered with nude females body.
