On Tuesday, November 12th, 2013, Catherine Deane showcased her exquisite forms of art at the Wortham Center in downtown Houston Texas.
The Spring 2014 collection featured an abundance of lace, beading, delicate folds, and soft accents, but also incorporated edgier notes such as leather.
In a color palette of sophisticated slate, sexy black, and feminine pastels, a mixture of alluring full-length gowns and sheath silhouettes danced across the runway. The pieces fluently transitioned from casual chic to elegant evening to glamorous red-carpet.
Sheer ivory adorned with elaborate beading and stitched florals varied from short flutter sleeves to transparent full length, adding an element of diversity for cool, crisp spring evenings. Glittery back details were highlighted by the models’ gracefully sideswept hair. Glowing pink cheeks and rosy lips enhanced the enchanting designs.
Deane effortlessly combined leather and lace, giving more casual looks a sleek, sophisticated edge. One style combined a metallic leather laser cut skirt with navy bodice while another paired a leather skirt with shimmery lace bodice with leather trim.
Deane’s signature beading and dainty embellishments were seen on high-wasted belts and tightly fitted bodices that enhanced the female figure, offset by flowing multilayer’s of silk, satin and chiffon. A hazy purple gown with deep V-neck and shimmering silver belt and shoulder beading was a standout among the timeless collection.
While some looks color blocked traditional black and white, others featured silky white layered under sheer black. One gown cinched at the waist and continued with a floral embroidered layer into an elegant V-neck while another extended to the neckline.
In the world of evening gown and bridal couture, Catherine Deane is a star on the rise. For more on her enchanting style and designs, visit her website.
