This season, Carmelita Martell of Carmelita Couture debuted her FW 2010 collection which continues to show her distinct bold style. Her signature party dress makes a return in gold with black tulle while other familiar silhouettes are given new life in fine fabric in similar colors.

Amongst the black and gold are an electric blue secretary-like  backless number and a caped ensemble, both in soft suede. Zippers shift between being for function and form, a detail that’s present throughout the collection. Speaking of details, new to the Carmelita Couture design aesthetic is the use of sequins and studs which adorned the shoulders of tops and dress sleeves.

Compared to when M.I.S.S. first caught a glimpse of Carmelita Couture at Las Vegas Pool trade show in 2009, you can say this collection is a bit more grown up. The range of colors is turned down a notch and the use of prints are to a minimum if not non-existent. The collection as a whole however can still be easily tied to previous collections by how the clothes fit close to the body without being too tight and give a sense of power and sexual prowess without being too serious or too revealing.
