If your collection is comparable to works by students from a fashion school, it’s problematic! This season, such a tragedy descended upon Barbara Tfank. Inspired by Elizabeth Taylor, her Fall 2019 line of “couture-esque” looks were far from the grandeur and the excellence that the Hollywood legend wore. They were just rehashes of the 40s, 50s, and 60s, and to make matters worse, they were all poorly executed. You can see the low quality with the unflattering fit on the cocktail dresses, some of which the darts didn’t even look completely sewn together! Similarly, some dresses on the mini-bridal line had puckering at the seams and slightly scrunched-up finishes. It was almost embarrassingly low-quality, especially to the standards of Ms. Tfank. We didn’t recognize her elegant touch here at all. Was it possible that an intern designed and made these clothes? At this point, we’re not ruling that out! We only wish that her star clients like former First Lady Michelle Obama and singer Adele won’t be spotted in these monstrosities!
Barbara Tfank Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
There's a proper way to approach the 50s and 60s couture, and unfortunately, Barbara Tfank didn't do it this season. Her Fall 2019 line was just a poor woman's copy of elegant styles and chic creations of that past. But hers were low-quality, slightly cheap-looking pieces that simply looked poor!
