Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], Feb. 11 (ANI): Seems like, jewels have made a comeback in the fashion world, New York Fashion Week has seen to it.

The ramp at the Fashion Week was splashed with crystals and gemstones. Two of the renowned designers presented their new collection of shoes loaded with jewels.

One of the designers, Jason Wu, has proven that sparkle never goes out of fashion. He has given a decorative touch to his collection with colours drawn from gemstones and rhinestones to add a dash of sparkle.

Wu, inspired by modernist jewellery, called the mix of clothes, shoes with jewels an "unexpected" new touch on textures, "where the traditional elements were broken apart as a deconstructed version of classic glamour".

The other of the two designers, Paul Andrew, took to glitter gulch for his new collection. He created shoes and boots embellished with crystals, gemstones, and rhinestones.

From high-heels to flat slip-ons to classic red suede pump, Andrew played with all styles and gave a glittery gulch to everything in his collection.

The designer believes that his inspiration though much wider includes bold red, black, and white palette inspired by the paintings of Robert Motherwell.

Beside shoes, the designers also made dustings of crystals and gemstones on their clothing lines. (ANI)
