Today a trifecta of designers blended their three shows individually into one time slot at the tents. The result was efficient, and enjoyable. Would that other designers do the same…spectators might not have to stand in line for an hour to see one ten minute show.
I tried my best to get some candid shots, but quickly realized there is a reason why we hire professional photographers, talent for one, and a designated spot to get a good view, for two. Sadly my video and pics did not do any of the shows justice. But fear not, quality pics are on the way…and in the mean time here is a verbal run down to wet your appetite.
Mara Hoffman — Very Feminine, think flowing, think chiffon, think bright colors and graphic prints, with a bit of draping thrown in for good measure. Per usual this design duo did not disappoint!
Whitney Eve — Whitney’s collection was quite more than I expected, and was delighted to see a young designer with an eye show her collection; it was ecclectic, but not without a collective creative stamp. like MH Whitney’s clothes are girly, but she played all across the color wheel, with pastels, rich hues, and even a few looks all in black. She intelligently added feminine flounces to her darker ensembles by adding ruffles, and a mini circle skirt supported underneath with tulle. I imagine the collection will be well recieved and that Whitney has a good chance to break out of her reality t.v. career.
Nicholas K — Ahh…what can I say here? Sorry Nicholas but I wasn’t too impressed. Denim Coolie hats…large checked pastel plaid…and opening the show with brightly colored sweats? I failed to see the vision.
