News From fashion Week
So its almost the midpoint of New York Fashion week and there is already tons to talk about. The best shows so far have definitely been Alexander Wang and Diane Von Furstenberg. Wang's show was dark and submissive, he used both skinny and wide leg pants with black blazers and sweaters. There was also a fantastic use of new wave fabrics in black and earthy toned skirts and wrap dresses. It was quite reminiscent of Givenchy's recent shows. Furstenberg's show was a brave step away from her usual uber feminine looks. She used the Dior New look in most of the pieces
with great colors like olive and deep purple. Obviously Baby Phat was disgusting and gaudy as always. Relative newcomer Sass and Bide had a fantastic show, perfect for the Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs costumer, Chic, Young, and Tough.
