Karen Sabag Fall 2009
Karen Saba has had a few seasons under her belt as a designer. Her past collections seemed to have a more costume design feel with not much attention paid to ready to wear clothing. But with age comes wisdom, and the fall 2009 collection is a vast separation to what she’s done in the past. Gone are the fantasy inspired looks we saw years ago, Karen has embraced the ready to wear aspect and is trying to harness her client with a wearable collection of fitted and structured pieces. Showing a thirty-six piece collection might be a bit much in these economic times, there is a vast selection to choose from for both day and evening. Her fabric selections rage from silk charmeuse, double faced satin and organza, just to name a few. What we like most about this collection is that for the first time there is a focus to the clothing and a concentrated effort to producing a line with a fluid feel. If she stays on this path great things should come down the road.
