Fall Fashion: Kjurek Couture

Saturday's Arctic Studios was alive with the Puerto Rican-based Bomba drums & dancing. The dancers moved their bodies to every beat of the drum, making it a very wild and rich dance. It was the perfect way to start the evening, as you could see the inspiration from Bomba throughout Kimberly Jurek's fall 2010 collection.

It was a BEAUTIFUL show!

The collection consisted of fun, bright prints, in dresses, skirts, tops, and jackets, as well as the debut of a new handbag line--a collaboration of two local talents: Kimberly Jurek & Amanda Christine.

The styling, by Andrea Oseland, was fantastic as well--as she assembled together each piece, often multiple times, showing the various ways to style Kimberly's designs.

We love the print of this skirt paired with the sheer knee high socks-a great look for fall!

Almost every model was wearing a beautiful scarf in teal & magenta prints, draped luxuriously with the clothes. The color palette consisted of strong jewel tones that were complimented by graphic, ethnic-inspired prints that left us feeling inspired and excited about fall fashion!

The handbags are a combination of leather and suede, with lots of fringe and fantastic hardware. A unique yet functional addition to anyone's wardrobe. (I would LOVE to own one myself!!) These will not be available in the typical boutiques where you would find the designs of both Kimberly & Amanda, but instead will be sold independently by the ladies themselves-most likely through a website at some point. (We will keep you updated as to when that happens!)

Her fall collection should be in boutiques next month. A few select pieces have already arrived at some locations. Check out Cliche, Drama, Parc Boutique, or Karma to start adding to your fall wardrobe!

For more details on Kim's collection & take on fashion, check out her interview with l'etoile magazine on the l'etoile magazine blog.

We love the ease of this flowing skirt
and great vest, not to mention the
handbag that we are obsessed with!!

Who could resist this amazing dress?? The fabric was draped amazingly - it has a casual, yet very elegant feel to it, which makes it perfect to wear everywhere!!
