You could tell Anna Sui was cooking up something très, très Francais from the moment you stepped inside the tent and took your seat, serenaded by a series of ‘60s (and thereabouts) French pop songs. Another tip-off -- her program, entitled “Nouvelle Vague” (or New Wave).
Ahhhh, oui, oui, but of course -- La Sui, she is paying homage to the French New Wave, a group of maverick French...Read more »
Jeremy Scott sure knows how to put on a show -- the roar of applause was deafening after he unleashed a jet-fueled, neon-lit, sugar-rush collection inspired by the raucous, take-no-prisoners punk rock / New Wave movements, and sure to please all you club-hopping fashionistas and downtown dudes out there.
It was like time traveling back to 1979, with the B-52s anthem “Rock Lobster” blasting...Read more »

Narciso Rodriguez is a slasher extraordinaire—known for outfitting celebs like Julianna Margulies and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss in sleek, figure-hugging numbers with sexy, slashed cutouts. For fall, he loosens the silhouette, and offers no flashes of skin, but keeps things exciting with unexpected, diagonal color-blocking and slashed, angled hemlines.
There are no horizontal or vertical lines here....Read more »
You almost feel like you should have your passport on you when you attend a Sophie Theallet runway show. Surely there’s some sort of customs checkpoint, where cold but impeccably dressed officials should survey your papers, and a front-row seat requires a visa. Because as soon as the lights go down, the music pumps in and the models start down the runway, well, it’s clear we’re not in...Read more »
People of a certain age remember the ominous Hitchcock greeting: “Good evening.” The Badgley Mischka runway – dark and filled with fog -- offered up a collection, inspired by Hitchcock femme fatales, that virtually guaranteed a good evening with its high style, glam and glitter.
The boys, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, are self-proclaimed magpies and so it’s a pretty sure thing that almost...Read more »
The buzz was audible preshow at Oscar de la Renta on Tuesday night as show attendees wondered aloud, “Is John Galliano at the back of the house? Will he take a bow? Will we catch a glimpse?”
The answer was yes, he was at the back of the house and no, and we didn’t see him. Recently de la Renta invited Galliano to work with him as “designer in residence.” Galliano, who is considered by many...Read more »
Jenny Packham’s runway was achingly beautiful with mostly evening gowns and cocktail dresses that simultaneously managed to be delicate and strong. These, said the designer, were inspired by 17th-century Paris Salons that served as virtual women’s clubs, where “strong-minded women met to discuss arts and culture.”
Packham, a British designer, who has dressed a bunch of strong-minded...Read more »
Tory Burch presented her elegant, downright pretty collection for Fall 2013 in a swanky ballroom lit by crystal chandeliers at the Pierre Hotel on Fifth Avenue.
Inspired by the rich textures of Gustav Klimt’s portraits and the Art Nouveau movement, Burch’s looks were uber-embellished and classy, yet still maintained an air of whimsy.
Beetle prints turned out on blouses and turtlenecks...Read more »
