NY Fashion Week Fall ’08. Behnaz Sarafpour’s Journey Back Again

February 5, 2008 • New York Fashion Week Fall '08







Summary: Way before Target, Behnaz Sarafpour won us over with her chic frocks, but it seems everyone is doing the same old dresses these days. Sarfpour clearly wanted to spread her wings and try something new this season. Some of it worked brilliantly and some fell a little short. She began the show with eco-friendly designs using organic cotton, wool and jersey. Then we noticed the footwear which were booties covered in goat fur and we got a little scared. Goat fur then began showing up as stoles and embellishments paired with soft silk dresses for an effect that puzzled us. So did the eyeliner witch looked like the models were punched with purple or yellow paint. Then thankfully the dresses we were waiting for emerged and we were happy again. Our favorite was the crinkled plum and grey shift with a metallic bow. Gorgeous.
