L.A.M.B.: Absolutely Terrible!

New York Fashion Week is officially over, and there has been some considerable amounts of positive and negative moments. We’ve seen poodles and cakes on Issac Mizrahi’s runway; we’ve also seen the success of Michael Kors once again. However, from all of the fashion shows shown, one show will be remembered as a disaster, and sad to say it belongs to Gwen Stefani.

Gwen Stefani’s clothing line, L.A.M.B., of approximately five years have been quite controversial. There has been only two sides of the industry that stood upon the flourish of her brand. One side absolutely loved her clothing and always bid an oath to support her. They thought that Stefani being a celebrity, and producing something actually lucrative(So many celebrities create a clothing line, and all the garments turns out to be trash.)was something to initiate success. However, many thought L.A.M.B. was considerably over-priced for poorly made clothing, and garments that were not needed at all. (I fit into this category!) I will assure you that the two clashing groups will become one and decide that L.A.M.B.’s Autumn collection was a disastrous train-wreck.

First, I believe the clothing wasn’t considerably awing for buyers to swoon. Garments were perfectly styled on models–fat ones at that– to attract attention. Consequently, however, if you take one piece at a time and visualize the garment as an individual structure, you’ll find that the pieces were garbage. I might also add that some maxi dresses caught my attention with rich colors and ethnic prints that could be easily connected to Missoni this Spring 2011 season. Plus, a small amount of sweaters weren’t quick to actually disappoint. Overall, I snickered in ridicule, L.A.M.B. fulfilled the celebrity stereotype when producing clothing.

Second, Gwen Stefani ignorantly used models as a way to clump races in garment groups. If you carefully look through the fashion show, you’ll notice that she grouped models, “a little oddly,” says Style.com’s Mathew Schneier, “by race.” (I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed the “coincidence”.) She grouped models with darker skin under more ethnic, African inspired prints. In addition, Stefani ignorantly placed Asian models in more modish, “geek-like” looks. If at all, someone should be at the least a bit offended. The collection was an opportunity to plant and stereotype racial groups in garment classes.

Lastly, I finish the harsh review with a little humor. A model in the L.A.M.B. fashion show was unlucky enough to be granted a shoe, of the many, that was poorly made. Style.com in an inspiring way says, “But it’s not much fun to wear things that are poorly made. The platform of one model’s shoe went flying off mid-walk; she, flying to the ground. It didn’t inspire confidence. It did prove to be a girl-power moment, though. She was a Buffalo Girl by look, but she bravely Solidered on.”
