Designer Blake reveals enchanting FW14 couture line

Apr '14
With Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like the Wolf” energizing the audience, Jonathan treated fashion buyers, clients, special guests and media to a runway “walk on the wild side” on Wednesday, April 2, that ended with Miss Texas 2013 Ali Nugent and her escort a trained wolf from Oklahoma named Scout. 
 
Anything but wild or hungry, Scout displayed fearless, gentle and affectionate tendencies with front row guests. With Nugent as his beautiful handler (clad in mink and Nappa leather bolero jacket and a black cotton satin Jonathan Blake evening gown with Nappa leather inserts and trim), Scout garnered huge applause from the crowd of 350-plus and became an immediate Jonathan Blake social media super star.
 
The invitation-only runway fashion show last week at The Omni Hotel in Houston at Riverway marked the fourth for this up-and-coming designer in his hometown. The show featured 29 looks and 55 pieces, including a new line of Jonathan Blake handbags. Sharron Melton, KTRK-TV/ABC 13 morning news anchor, served as the emcee for the runway fashion show and reception at the Omni Houston Hotel near the Houston Galleria. Page Parkes provided models. 
 
“Women who have a ‘secret’ side, who are refined and restrained by day and uninhibited and fun-loving by night, are the muses for my new Fall/Winter collection. I have introduced luxurious furs and intricate embroidery into my Jonathan Blake line. I also expanded my use of fine leathers and exotic skins, silk and wool. With regard to my new handbags, women who travel stylishly served as my inspiration. Each handbag is handmade in the United States and is available in a unique color of fine leather or exotic skin,” Jonathan explained.
 
The color palette for the new Jonathan Blake Fall/Winter collection includes forest green, navy, red, burgundy, winter white, brown, black and hounds tooth. The collection features jackets, coats, dresses, skirts, blouses and slacks made from wool, leather, sable, mink, ermine, fox, hair hide, and long haired goat sourced from the United States, Canada, Denmark, Finland and Russia. For Jonathan Blake’s handbags, the official tannery of Hermes supplied crocodile, alligator, lizard and ostrich to ensure the highest quality and luxury that the Jonathan Blake brand represents. 
 
Naomi Smart, a London-based fashion features assistant with British Vogue who attended the Jonathan Blake trunk show last week, commented: “I loved the green leather dress with the mink shrug. It was luxurious with a cool vibe and was appropriate for any age. Jonathan was able to appeal to a chic, uptown girl while also conveying a slightly edgier tone. I also thought Jonathan’s use of exotic furs was brilliant and his placement of furs was very interesting.”
