It's not often that a dress leaves me gasping for air but this collection by Rosie Assoulin a New York designer is just stunning. I really loved the brief Q & A she did with Harpers Bazaar

"Rosie Assoulin came out of the gate with a major, albeit well-earned following, with supporters like friend and blogger Leandra Medine of the Man Repeller and a host of clout-y fashion publications championing her designs. Recently, Lily Aldridge wore her off-the-shoulder white gown to the amfAR gala and basically stole the show in the couture-like creation. With a background in Oscar de la Renta's altelier, the New York native has elegant formal-wear down but imbues her work with a markedly recognizable signature that belies her young age (some designers work decades to get there)—with plays on volume, interesting uses of color and a way with drama that's somehow perfectly approachable. Read on for what Assoulin had in mind for her standout Fall 2014 season." - HB
