herve-legerHerve Leger is a celebrity favorite, as designer Max Azria’s body hugging signature bandage dresses have a high fashion appeal but are still body-conscious and wearable.

Still, Azria is often criticized as a designer for refusing to stray from the bandage design that propelled his brand into mainstream notoriety. After all, how many short, tight striped dresses can one fashion house make?

Well, Azria marched his response to this question down the Mercedes Benz Fashion week runways this past week. The answer? At least 32 more.

The collection managed to reinvent the bandage dress is a more cutting edge way. Azria showed conceptual dresses with dramatic cuts and complicated detailing. The typical skin tight Leger mini dresses have graduated to angular, sculpted frocks. In some pieces, the bandaging technique is abandoned altogether in favor of elaborate weaving, although there is always a subtle nod to the original thrown in masterfully.
