Here's a look at the collections from New York fashion week that I think have mastered the party dress.
Every season Alice + Olivia and Erin Fetherston make beautiful dresses that are great for fancy occasions that aren't the Oscars, which means they are wearable! Alice + Olivia stepped out of the box a little with their shapes and patterns, and I love Erin Fetherston's etherial look.
They seem to follow with the idea, much like Marchesa, that if it ain't broke don't fix it.
