Day two had begun and the winter storm "Nemo″ had started to make an appearance. Snow and sleet were falling which made the dash across the street to Lincoln Center a little tougher than usual. But who says that a snowstorm will stop fashion week? Without fear Cesar Galindo showcased his beautiful collection at 9am, followed by Project Runway which helped other designers score additional celebrity audience for the day’s following shows. Carmen Marc Valvo continued the morning with gorgeous trench coats, fur, cocktail dresses and pink tipped hair sported by the models. Mr. Marc Valvo is sweet as pie and let it be known that he is a big supporter of women’s cancer charities. Rebecca Minkoff makes pretty clothes and showed as well and speaking of Rebecca not seeing Rebecca Taylor on the MBFW schedule was a bit sad.
Jason Wu’s show was the highlight of this day. A strict color palette of black, white, bright red, and deep violet, Wu went deep into tailoring with outstanding outerwear that included sexy, structured lace trench coats, feathered tops and his trademark lady like silhouettes
“It’s all about the embodiment of a woman—powerful, sensual, sexy, glamorous,” said Jason Wu the former Narciso Rodriguez intern as he unveiled his looks board backstage before his show presented at the former Oscar De La Renta’s favorite venue, the "Church" on Park Avenue. “I wanted to project beauty—beautiful clothes and beautiful women.” Said Wu. Two-time charmed on dressing the first lady doesn’t come without an amazing show and this is sure what he delivered.
Academy of University presented their bi annual collections. I recently paid a visit to the school campuses located in San Francisco Ca. and I was so impressed. What a better prize to a senior student then showcase their collections during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
Day 2 gone and so the slippery slop had begun which made room to a huge announcement from Marc Jacobs the great. His show was to be postponed until Thursday Feb 14 at 8pm making even my fab gal Anna Dello Russo to change her flight.
O dear Fashion!
