Jackie Rogers, the celebrated couturier to high-profile women and men in entertainment and high society, introduced her Fall 2010 luxury collections with an exclusive runway presentation held March 31 at her Madison Avenue boutique here. The event marked a return to menswear for Ms. Rogers.
Jackie RogersвЂ™ Fall womenвЂ™s designs were strongly influenced by Asian culture with inspired styling elements including asymmetric closures, mandarin collars, and richly appointed dimensional accents such as braiding, leather trim, floral rosettes, and contour quilting that are both modern and chic. Ms. RogersвЂ™ signature silhouette, the jumpsuit, is making a return in a number of fabrications. A sophisticated style, it flatters and enhances a womanвЂ™s curves. вЂњThe jumpsuit has been a favorite style of many of my customers,вЂќ says Rogers. вЂњIt slims and elongates a womanвЂ™s proportions giving her a statuesque look.вЂќ
A staunch believer in natural fabrics, Jackie Rogers incorporates ultra-luxurious cashmeres, supple wool gabardines, flowing crepes, lavish velvets and sumptuous silk satins for Fall 2010. And thatвЂ™s where it all begins. A design comes alive at Jackie RogersвЂ™ hand after a fabric is draped and molded to the desired shape. Each season has a point of view that emanates from the selected fabric. Clean, linear jackets and coats gently follow the female form, creating looks that are as comfortable in executive suites as they are at social luncheons.
Ms. RogersвЂ™ couture clientele is a WhoвЂ™s Who of high-profile women, including The First Lady of Malaysia, New York StateвЂ™s First Lady Michelle Paige Paterson, and Madame Amal Alankary. Broadway stars Patti LuPone and Christine Baranski, singer Roberta Flack and Oscar-winning actress Marisa Tomei are also among her loyal customers.
Jackie RogersвЂ™ relaunched menswear collection was created for the man with a passion for refined taste, impeccable fit and expert tailoring. The collection boasts sports suits, jackets, sexy trousers and shirts that reflect clean, elegant design. Created in only the finest natural fabrics, the designs are built on rich cashmeres, fine and textured woolens, and sumptuous, supple gabardines. вЂњI only design in the finest, most exclusive fabrics and itвЂ™s these fabrics that lead me to shaping the final garments,вЂќ says Rogers.
Jackie Rogers originals are available at her namesake high-end boutiques in the exclusive shopping districts of New York City and and Palm Beach, Florida.
