Yoana Goes to "Virtualand"

By Tiffany Olson

Taken from the show program, "The Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collection takes us on an emotional journey thru Virtualand, a familiar place in our dreams and on our computer screens.  Here Faux Reality reins and transports us in a cinematic domain where 70's excess glam divas morph into virtual modern heroines."

Yoana Baraschi’s fall 2011 presentation played with color blocking, transparency, and textural combinations, which were inspired by the faux reality we see everyday in our digitally enhanced world, like the tricks you can play with photoshop.   The show included a lot of warm fall color with giant prints, which represented the "HyperReal" 3D world we live in. Models were sleek in pulled back hair.  Makeup was simple except for heavy eyeshadow that was in coordinating shades of purple, pink and orange. 

The androgynous Serbian-Australian model Andrej Pejic also caused quite a stir, modeling in this show! 
When I spoke with Yoana backstage, she said her favorite piece of the collection was the tech brocade victory dress with the open back.  It just so happened to be our favorite as well!!  It’s one of the most classic, fabulous pieces we’ve seen in a LONG time. We’re in love!! 

Celebs spotted at this event: Teresa Giudice, recording artist Erika Jayne, and J. Alexander, also known as Miss J from America's Next Top Model.
