Known for her beautifully ornate red carpet gowns, Jenny Packham took inspiration for fall from “a quick visit to the Prado Museum in Madrid.” Captivated by the work of Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta — known for painting society ladies who were beautiful, confident and flirty — she used color and texture to translate the artist’s aesthetic without it looking too costumey.

Packham worked her signature embroidered gowns in silhouettes ranging from sexy-slinky to full-skirted with coquettish slits. She also mixed things up a bit style-wise, adding cropped palazzo pants, jumpsuits and rompers as well as several show-stopping sequined coats that gave a 3-D dimension to the collection.
