Then the show quickly approached and we started seating at 8:30. I was lucky enough to get a seat in the front row, because I was told that the show was completely sold out. The show started off with 2 upcoming designers that revealed a lingerie collection & a ready to wear f/w collection. Then Borris Powell raffled off a replica of his famous "Black Swan" dress that was worn at the Oscars.

Finally it was time for Borris Powell to release his collection. Here it is, Borris Powell's C Me N Dior F/W 2011 Collection that is inspired the timeless 40's energy that Christian Dior has shown. The collection consisted of wools, leather, fur, and satins that was strongly tailored with a mix of modern minimalism.
My overall impression of the collection was that the pieces were so well made and innovative. I loved the combinations of leather and fur in a skirt form. Borris Powell received several standing ovations when the last few dresses came out because of the shock that it brought to the room.
Christian Dior would definitely be proud of Borris and of course he didn't let his family, friends, and fans down. Borris Powell recently had a trunk show for his collection on March 12, 2011. If you want more information on when the collection will be available, please check out BorrisPowell.com.
