Malan Breton - Fall 2014

Malan Breton presented his Fall 2014 Collection on Feb 11th and BPR Field Reporter, Jennifer Mara, sends us this report - thanks Jen!



Today Malan Breton traded his white runway for a black box theatre and his Fall 2014 fashion show was among the best.

Malan Breton shows are always extremely well run and executed with the most professional staff.


The atmosphere was dark with blue spotlights streaming from above in every direction, the one white spotlight on the incredible pianist Erik James who really put us in the mood.



The place filled with energy as each look passed through the U-shaped space with thirty plus looks. (Malan always delivers.)

Malan Breton at "Celebrate Taiwan" Sept. 28


Taiwan and the Smithsonian Museum Present Malan Breton Spring 2014 Collection NYC, NY.

Taiwan Tourism Bureau in New York partners with the Smithsonian Museum promoting Taiwan culture with "Celebrate Taiwan at Grand Central Terminal" this Saturday September 28 from 11 - 2 PM.

Taiwan celebrity fashion designer Malan Breton has been invited to show his fashions as a part of the festivities. The Malan Breton Collection will be shown at 1 PM.

The Malan Breton collection is inspired by a meeting of delicacy and strength; yin and yang. 

"The strong Savile Row silhouettes of the 1960's British pops invasion meets the decadent romance of Won Kar Wei's film, In the Mood for Love," explains Malan. 

 The silhouettes are enhanced by opalescent fabrics, old world corsetry, rich brocades, organza, mylar, cashmere, embroideries, and mother of pearl that give these collections a touch of glamour, romance, luxury, and strength.

Malanathon - Part 2

A second look at Malan's show is provided by BPR Field Reporter - Jennifer Mara - Thanks Jen! 
Jen with Elisa Jimenez

 You can always count on Malan Breton to put on a unique show, today beautiful in so many ways, he does it again. 



 Today his show began with a logo and a song on the trumpet. The silence in the audience was beautiful. Then we kick it into gear. 

 Thematically very interesting; same fabrics crossing between male and female.




Suits of silk and glitter both embellished for each gender and tailored for personality for a very fashionable but wearable look. 

 Cummerbunds worn by women around their waists as belts were super sleek and different. 

Each look was extremely well made and well thought out. 



 My favorite?; that would be the white tube top dress with the tuxedo belt OR the Copper patent leather pants rocked out twice in the show-once by a woman and once for a man. 

 Work it Malan! 

 Click here for LOTS of photos from Jen. Thank you!

It's a Malanathon! - Part 1


The next entry in today's Malanathon is a report from Nancy T - thanks Nancy!

Malan by Malan Breton – on The Catwalk!

 Malan Breton is all over Fashion Week for Spring 2014.

On September 7, he showed in the Mercedes Benz tents.

On September 11, he put on another show in Metropolitan Pavilion sponsored by Style 360 and Fancy Feast. Nobody was sure what to expect from a show sponsored by cat food. Would there be feline companions for the models? Fur coats? Cat fights?

 None of the above (thank goodness). Though there was a fluffy Persian posing in the lobby and backstage, only men and women took to the catwalk.



 The show was characteristically Malan – timeless fashion and ageless looks.

Malan’s designs seemed inspired by mens’ formal wear, with tuxedo touches (cummerbunds, satin stripes on pants), a mostly black and white palette, and beautiful silks and brocades.

Leather and a few items in vivid reds and yellows were interspersed with the dressier looks, making the collection feel like it could be worn on the street (but only on a VERY NICE street).



 The final look was a stunner. The model strode the runway, wrapped in a voluminous gray and white cloak. At the end of the walk , she unfastened and dropped the cloak – which turned out to be a very long train on a white strapless gown. Think “Say Yes to the Dress” for a drama queen.

 Thanks Malan for another lovely collection!

BPR Field Reporter, Jennifer Mara sends us this report - thanks Jen!

Jennifer Mara and Malan Breton

Malan ALWAYS puts on an incredible show, last night at Pier 59 was no different. Every season, Malan produces new levels of growth and evolution at a rapid pace which is refreshing and enjoyable to see. 


RHONY Aviva Dresher
On a clean white runway, Malan showcased menswear, womenswear, evening, outerwear, and well, you name it. Malan is not holding back on us! (Not that he ever did) The collection is complete with 45 looks in a 50's Marilyn Monroe theme that delivered in every way. 

Outstanding music set the tone and each model brought a new flavor to each pass. Each garment was stunning.


Audible ooo's and aahh's kept the energy high throughout the show and every look was a hit, especially the men's fur. WOW! ... Malan's personal favorite, the blue mink...and can you blame him?


Malan included the Marilyn Monroe Jewelry™ Collection by JTV, luxury lingerie company Chantelle Paris, Batiste Dry Shampoo, Brooklyn Spectacles, GOLDTOE Socks, H.H. Brown Shoe Company, Harbor Footwear Group, with his dear friend Aviva Drescher in support of the One Step Ahead Foundation.

BPR Interview with Malan Breton


Project Runway season 3 designer, Malan Breton, updates us on his plans for Fashion Week and into the future.  

A highlight:

BPR: Are you living in New York?

MB: As you know I have been traveling between New York and L.A. for the past year.

I have just signed a contract to appear in a film with Taylor Negron. I am playing an attorney, a french attorney. I'll keep you posted on that.

BPR: Malan, can you do a french accent? (because naturally I would love hear it!)

MB: Actually I speak french in the film. 

... And also, I have just been offered another opportunity to star in another film yesterday. I can't say what it is, but you will see, it is one of the biggest franchises in the world. I have been offered the role of a villainous character. Please stay tuned.

Malan Breton Fall 2012 BPR Field Report

Project Runway Season 3 designer, Malan Breton, presented his Fall 2012 Collection on Feb . 14th. BPR Field reporter, Jennifer Mara sends us this report. Thanks Jen!

Those who attended the Fall 2012 Malan Breton Presentation in Chelsea this past week enjoyed a great show. This is what Fashion Week is all about.


Malan showed a variety of menswear looks, each complemented by architecturally awesome accessories and bursts of color!


Three evening gowns appeared in the collection, each more intriguing than the next perfectly spaced at the beginning, middle and end of the show.


The black mini with the sheer bottom definitely made some jaws drop. Malan is not afraid of color- that’s for sure. His detailing and fabric choices let each look live vibrantly. Eye catching and beautiful each with their own personality, with cohesion throughout and the shoes…AMAZING!

Futuristic line-designed high-tops and men's dress shoes with a reverse cut stencil heel backing - Malan was wearing them too!!! Boy, did he look snazzy in a pale pink suit.

Malan Breton's Designs Featured in "Beauty is Skin Deep" Fashion Show



BPR Field Reporter, Rie Sadler was at the event last night and sends us this report - thanks Rie!

The 2nd annual "Beauty is Skin Deep" fashion show presented by Miss Sinergy was held at the La Maison Francaise at the Embassy of France in Washington, D.C., on March 4, 2011, to benefit the Skin Cancer Foundation. The show featured several pieces from a number of different designers, including Malan Breton, Stephen Mikhail, Maggie Norris, Timo Weiland, and DarBeDar by Tala Raassi.

Everything from swimwear to couture was shown. Will Thomas, weekend news anchor for Fox 5 in Washington, was the Master of Ceremonies, and special guests included Carson Kressley from "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and "How to Look Good Naked", Cat Ommaney from "Real Housewives of Washington DC", and Lucy Sykes Rellie, former fashion director at Marie Claire Magazine. Socialite Alexa Winner was the official stylist of the event. Kari Erskine, wife of Washington Capital's defenseman John Erskine, was a featured model.

Malan showed several selections from both his men's and women's lines, including the alligator print kimono he featured during his Fall 2011 show just a few weeks ago in New York.


The Skin Cancer Foundation was founded in 1979 and has set the standard for educating the public as well as the medical profession about skin cancer, its prevention by means of of sun protection, the need for early detection, and prompt, effective treatment. It is the only international organization devoted solely to combating the world's most common cancer, now occurring at epidemic levels. Many designers who donated their time, including Malan, have had loved ones who have suffered the effects of skin cancer.
