Summary: Gary Graham's Fall '11 RTW presentation employed his coy urban aesthetic, with the very element of deconstruction that makes his design sensibility so unique. Draped harems and oversized, mixmatched boho/ethnic prints were accented by the black, shaggy, 80s-style wigs worn by each of the models.
Not without a sense of humor, Graham's cleverly mismatched ensembles were accessorized with slouchy, striped socks in bold colors and an array of black heels and lace-up Converse.
