NY Fashion Week Fall ’08. Twinkle. Victor, Victoria, Victorious

February 3, 2008 • New York Fashion Week Fall '08







Summary: As expected Twinkle by Wenlan was entertaining, but what we didn’t expect was the added sophistication to this season’s collection. And we were pleased. Wenlan admits to exploring new realms for Fall 2008 borrowing from the best of menswear and transforming it into feminine sporty looks. A look she called "Victor/Victoria." The very wearable line was a mix of lightweight airy silks mixed with her chunky trademark Twinkle knits
which made for a cohesive silhouette that we have not seen from the designer before. Was it groundbreaking? No, but considering the line is usually a little young in it’s aesthetic, this was new frontier.
