Terri Stevens Fall 2009
S5 contestant Terri Stevens presented her fall 2009 collection at Brooklyn Fashion Week and we find ourselves hesitant to say anything because we didn’t want to start the week off by being so negative. But kittens, it’s just not to our taste. More importantly, it doesn’t look particularly polished, which is surprising, because her competition work was usually very polished. Some of the elements or pieces are downright bizarre, like the sequined pants and the weird ruffly/pleaty things that seem to be haphazardly stuck here and there. Then there are the …um, crotch treatments that make the models look like they’re wearing jockstraps. We like the harlequin check jackets, but that’s about it. We’re disappointed, to say the least. We liked a lot of her competition work and assumed that she would produce a polished collection of RTW separates, but who’s ready to wear this stuff?
