Fashion Week Recap: Part 1

Our head buyer, Derek, has been hopping from show to show the past few days and says the designers are absolutely turning it out this season. Check out his recap of the first half of Fashion Week!



Helmut Lang

Ultra cool and ultra chic draped separates and dresses in black, white and canary yellow.  Looked like classic Helmut Lang from when the designer was at the height of popularity in the late 90′s.




Christian Siriano

Christian paired striped t-shirts with maxi skirts in bright citrus colors. The highlight of the show was the accordion pleated poppy colored gown at the end of the show.


Yigal Azrouel

Yigal’s well edited show featured clean lines and bold colors.  Easy to wear but will also get the wearer noticed.




Prabal Gurung

Absolutely stunning.  Featured dresses made of Tulle with bold colorblocked cutouts and sportswear in an beautiful abstract print.  Gorgeous jackets, stunning gowns and all around an amazing show.  Prabal really elevated his collection to an even higher level this season.



Zac Posen

For Spring Zac focused on what he has always done best- look at me gorgeous cocktail dresses and paparazzi magnet red carpet gowns.  The gowns in the show were pure couture and were astonishingly plentiful.  I can’t even imagine how many man hours each of those dreams took to create.





Thakoon likes juxtaposition and this season he was inspired by cowboys and the country of India.  He mixed colorful paisly print with gold lame inserts and the effect was incredibly creative and beautiful.




Lela Rose

Lela feature some amazing fabrics and embellishments this season.  My favorite was the dot embroidered nude tulle that floated romantically down the runway.




Derek Lam

Derek Lam featured some gorgeous leather pieces and details on dresses.  The show was sportswear focused, with some great knits, skirts and coats.  Loved the black beaded sequin dress at the end- easy throw on glamour.
