Once upon a time, there was an enchanted forest called Central Park where uptown Cinderella’s braved the elements and the social life in whimsical wardrobes. Such was the premise of Isaac Mizrahi’s witty runway, where he melded camping and couture.

Humble quilting teamed up with distressed silver leather: a heavily studded zip-front coatdress was chic city armor; outdoorsy toggles adorned a sassy strapless evening dress. Entrance makers included crocodile patterned crystals -- clever, clever -- and a leafy peach slither that ends with an explosion of tulle. Fur-trimmed separate hoods and clear booties that slip over stilettos protect from snow, which, natch, came down full force during the show.
