NY Fashion Week Spring ’08. Anna Sui’s Playful Manic Panic. Second City Style Fashion Blog

September 11, 2007 • New York Fashion Week Spring '08

Summary: I have come to expect a fun, but frentic show from Anna Sui. I usually don’t like it when I see it on the runway, but know by the time it gets watered down for Anthropologie and copied by Forever21, I will change my mind. So I sit back and enjoy the ride. This was one of the most glitzy, glammed-up collections Sui has produced. She threw everything together, but the kitchen sink like: neon prints, metallic paillettes, sequins and even feathers. Reminiscent of the over-the-top seventies, the show oddly worked. Is it wearable? We shall see.
