The images from WWD just didn't do justice to the raw, light-filled loft that served as the setting for Jenny Kayne's Fall 2010 presentation. The models were poised on a marble-colored stage with a thick, neutral curtain behind them, allowing the sparse infusions of color in the collection to pop that much more. The great thing about presentations during Fashion Week is that you're allowed to really see the pieces up close—you can observe the soft swaths of fabric in a skirt, the exquisite construction of a jacket, or the smooth finish of a suede stiletto. But the absolute best thing about the more informal setup of a presentation is that the designer is often there mingling with their devoted public. In this case, Jenni Kayne herself wove in and out of the crowd in a cheerful manner, taking a moment out of her busy schedule to snap a picture with me. I couldn't think of a better way to kick off my fashion week!
