For Fall 2009, Max Azria was all about incorporating leather, lace and velvet in a black dominated palette, for a sexy, dark mystique, with the first few looks appearing very bondage-like. Dresses were layered over lace, sheer turtleneck bodysuits or paired with suede leggings. Over-accessorizing was encouraged, either with layering pieces, large leather clutches or almost to-the-shoulder long leather gloves. There were square shoulder jackets and dresses and draped jersey dresses that looked like the back of the dress was being worn as the front.
