Rachel Yeomans for Second City Style Once again, a mere tent has turned New York’s Bryant Park into a separate fashion kingdom. The lofty fountain as the centerpiece surrounded by throngs of loyal bedazzled subjects, all waiting impatiently to be ushered into the court’s runway — a tribute only bestowed to those honored to receive personalized invitations. Those fortunate subjects […]

Among the many designers that showed their fall collections in New York last week, Thuy Diep‘s self-named label, pronounced "Twee", truly shined. From the fiery red leather gloves to the mustard yellow skirt to the opaque indigo tights, this collection is simply to die for.  Finding inspiration in imperfection, Diep focused on contrasting elements such as masculine and feminine, opaque […]

Since we now know the five remaining designers already showed at Fashion Week, this episode was a bit of a let-down. True, the viewing audience will not see Sweet P or either Chris or Rami’s collections, but they still got to show at Bryant Park. So in a way, they all won. But, BravoTV thinks we are all idiots, so […]

Yes, this year’s fall runway was full of fashion winners…but unfortunately a few of the celebs in the front row were fashion losers… Here’s who topped the list: Ginnifer Goodwin at Peter Som Comment: Ginnifer Goodwin is a bit of a plain Jane, so we were glad to see her at the shows.

NY Fashion Week Fall ’08. Marc Jacobs. Taste Without a Tantrum.

Summary: My inner cynic says that last year’s collection was a bit too bold for the consumer’s closet (although it was an amazing indulgence on the runway!) — and that’s what accounts for the tame fall presentation. Somewhere between the pretty pieces that launched Jacobs into world renown and the cautious, educated optimism of his last two shows lies the […]

Summary: As I walked into the Jenni Kayne presentation, which was held in a gorgeous Greenwich townhouse, I overheard the designer discussing her inspiration: the 90’s, Nirvana, Seattle grunge. The cynic in me envisioned cliché’s of flannel and baggy sweaters. Please no Doc Martens. Moments later, I stepped into the presentation room and standing before me were about 2 dozen […]

NY Fashion Week Fall ’08. Donna Karan. From the Boardroom to the Bedroom

Summary: We were not really getting Donna Karan‘s silk satin bathrobe or extra long arm cuffs and super big shoulders, but all hope was not lost. Karan herself said she wanted a more unstructured collection and was influenced by rich jewel tones. Luckily there were some structured pieces as well. Flattering tailored suits and wrapped coats were some of our […]
