Body Conscious Dressing: Herve Leger at NY Fashion Week

Herve Leger is best known for its famous body hugging 'bandage style' dresses made famous by supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford who were often seen wearing the dresses.  The last few years fashion has seen a revival of this bandage style from high end to the lower priced knock-offs.  Today at New York Fashion Week the collection for spring 2013 was still true to the label's tradition of body conscious dressing. 

Leger, which is now owned by Max Azria, showed a collection that was inspired by the south.  With details that took references from traditional patchwork, appliques and quilting, it was smart and very sexy.  The silhouette's hugged a woman's curves and some included this season's flared trumpet style skirt.  But for the most part all the dresses were snug on the body with no room for any error.  You definitely can't eat that second piece of cake wearing one of these garments.
