Presented in a loft space overlooking the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the Negris LeBrum Fall 2012 brought a taste of Louisiana tradition to New York Fashion Week.
Founded in 1998, the Negris LeBrum Clothing Company was inspired by a love story that began in Natchitoches, Louisiana in the 1940’s. A beautiful young Creole woman named Negris fell in love with a handsome black man named Sam LeBrum and the two defied societal prejudice to triumph with the type of love that legends are made of.
With such an inspiration for the company, it is little wonder that the collection blends a romantic femininity with a modern sensibility. With a theme of “Le Noir est Joli”, Black is Beautiful, Negris Lebrum Fall 2012 showed a collection that was predominantly black with shots of white, brown, olive, and a bright red. One stand out look was a flirty watercolor print dress with a fitted sexy body and a slit paneled skirt with lots of movement.
For its first New York Fashion Week showing, Negris LeBrum Fall 2012 was a breath of fresh air in the somewhat jaded world of New York Fashion.
