Monique Lhuillier’s collection is a winter special at New York Fashion Week

Fashion designer Monique Lhuillier presented her new collection at New York Fashion Week that seemed befitting for the winter season. According to, the first ten looks of Lhuillier's collection "managed to make white garments interesting, perhaps even arresting". The white gowns stood out in sharp contrast against the black runway that quickly caught hold of the viewer's attention.

The collection included white ready-to-wear, art deco-influenced gowns rendered in deep greens, blacks and oxbloods, according to IBTimes. There were also geometric cutouts in suede leather, crushed velvet and satin and shortened hems. Some of the best looks were a black lace cut out dress and a long-sleeved beaded jade gown, according to IBTimes.

There were also cocktail dresses of different hemlines as well as knits for the winter season.

Lhuillier discussed her new collection with The Associated Press by stating, "Well you know, every time I start a collection I always say, 'What haven't I don't before, what's exciting, what's new, what do I want to accomplish this season?'".

Lhuillier also commented on an opulent green dress that a model was wearing, "So I wanted this girl to be super sexy. It's dramatic, mixed in with a little Art Deco, and just really intense color and intense structure."

With Oscar season upon us Lhuillier was asked if any of her gowns will be worn by an Oscar nominee, Lhuillier responded with a smile, "You'll have to wait and see but, um, anything is possible".
