Remember how excited we were about VG’s very own Sarah Muhl showcasing the first collection for her line Make.Love.Not.War? Well, we’re back to report on the results. I was fortunate enough to attend the event in Philadelphia and believe me, I was smitten by what I saw.
The show itself was hosted by the Philadelphia Design Initiative and took place at 32 Degrees Luxe Lounge in Old City. It goes without saying that putting on a runway show is not easy, and when it takes place in such tight space it takes some real talent to pull off. However, the whole show went off without a hitch. The girls entered the room from behind a curtain and walked the entire length of the elongated bar, literally brushing by spectators as they made their way down; it was really a rare pleasure to be able to see the garments from such a close perspective.
Simply put, Sarah’s girls are clean and chic. The dresses were flirty, with a touch of 50s snuck in, and the tops were elegant, stand-alone pieces that would even pair perfectly with jeans. My personal favorites were the cream colored sheer shirt with built-in neck bow and the amazing, luxurious pair of rust pajama-style pants. But as a whole, the entire M.L.N.W. line was no-nonsense, well-made, classy clothing.
