New York Fashion Week
And some designers that might have been thought also-rans in other years just totally shone, most chiefly Chaiken and Chado Ralph Rucci. Every collection glared this year.
This is the year the women of New York scratch and bite to get the runway models because the clothes will sell out, out out. There were several cohesive stories taking place in almost every collection. Ralph Lauren did a now-familiar British Colonial stuck in Africa trope that went down successful to watch, even if everyone can’t pull off a 6-foot balmacaan and sautoir pearls for day.
Calvin Klein went into a more subtle daze than seen of late, possibly wearable by the elite few who should be seen in his clothes and no one else. Vera Wang, noted for gala and bridal wear, contributed an exotic dark princess look with incredibly fine detail that may or may not rule the club/party scene this fall.
