New York Fashion Week Floods City With Glamour and Texture

New York City hummed with palpable electricity as legions of fashion fiends swarmed the tents at Lincoln Center to behold the collections built on blood, sweat and glitter. This was New York Fashion Week.

The intrigue of Alexander Wang’s collection enticed fashionistas to schlep down to Brooklyn’s Navy Yard, far from the chaos of Manhattan. Complete with a spinning runway, Wang dazzled with his dramatic flair.

Models were unrecognizable with icy stares, bleached brows and slick-straight wigs, which reflected the androgynous overtones of the show. They marched down the runway in utilitarian dresses with rows of pockets for things you never knew you needed. Wang played with gender bending in menswear-inspired frocks. Billowing slacks hid under oversized coats with massive lapels that veiled any trace of womanly curves.

Resort 2013 Roundup: Highlights & Trends, Part II

Our first Resort 2013 Roundup highlighted just some of our favorite trends from summer’s debut of the Resort 2013 season. The designers who offered up covetable collections to appease our fashion appetites in between major seasons seemed to have all been on the same page when it came to energizing prints and jet-set-worthy frocks. To sum up part one of our trend roundup, stripes and florals covered everything from mini skirts to wide-leg pajama pants. However, the pre-season Resort collections were just too good not to take notice—there’s still more great fashion we can’t help but talk about.

The Little White Dress

From the runway:

The LWD dominated the spring 2011 ready-to-wear runway shows, most notably Dolce & Gabbana's. Jill Stuart’s take on the LWD included structured silhouettes mixed with ruffles and frills. Azzaro’s show-stopping LWD encompassed a crystal bodice and a tired white silk skirt both united by a large black bow. Monique Lhuillier’s LWD designs were just angelic. Some other LWD designers included Derek Lam, Chanel, and Alexander McQueen (which is in the hands of the deserving Sarah Burton who took over for the late McQueen).

2. For the "everyday" girl: Abercrombie, ‘Kylie’ dress ($68 at Abercrombie)

Fashion moves fast; do not get left behind. The LWD is the season's hottest trend, but it may become your fierce new closet staple.
