Highlights from today:
Cynthia Rowley, (who, by the way, is selling her fall styles as soon as they go down the runway) showed a collection full of prints and textures and interesting pieces. The body styles in her collection were full of volume and detail, from billowy skirts with bubble hems to ruched dresses complimented with fringe and feathers. This show caught our eye because so many of the pieces were different than what we have seen before and they really seemed to have an imagination behind them. Rowley described the collection as the "chic-monster-girl collection."
Jason Wu tried to show his scope as a designer with his fall collection, sending items down the runway that were far different than his typical short cocktail dresses. He said that the inspiration behind his collection was based on Irving Penn himself. His pieces, similarly to Rowleys, were heavy on the prints and textures, and were a nice break from many designers affinity for bleak colors and boring silhouettes.
And Preen, well Preen was just amazing. They definitely took it to the next level. We loved every piece.
