Once again Amanda deLeon wowed the attendees of NOLAFW. Her leather work seen in her fall collection had everyone talking, and this season her spectacular use of sequins and and tassels will have them continuing to talk. This collection proved her range. She was able to bring her edgy style and merge it flawlessly with summer and spring colors, materials, and structures. But, she was still true to herself, and her inspirations. DeLeon’s inspiration alone made her stand out. Her collection was inspired by two things that connect everyone: water and digital communication. “It is an idea that through both water and technology alike we all belong. We are all connected. The world becomes smaller. It is not I; it is we. It is not mine; it is ours.” –Amanda deLeon
She gave her looks amazing fluid motion like the flow of water by using tassels and sequins. And, there were deep, pure hues of aqua and blue throughout the collection. Accents of gold and other metallics as well as the organza cut outs on the back of her dresses respectively gave tribute to the screens digital devices and electric wiring.
