"The inception of the Tents at Bryant Park in 1993 was a defining moment for fashion and the city of New York"-Yeohlee Teng
Peter Som returned to the runway with a bang, bringing us a marvelous melange of bright colors, prints and textures. Alexander Wang will have us pining for pinstripes come fall, and Helmut Lang did black-and-white right, along with several shades of grey... But my pick for the day is from Georges Chakra's evening-wear collection, which was a divine display of glamour with surprising back detailing like like a gown resembling a backward tuxedo. The look below is an interesting interpretation of oversized separates - tied up in the back with a touch of shine. Please forgive the photo quality, as I couldn't yet find his reviews online - and the photos are my own from the show.
