In a flourish of glitter, glamour and all things glamorous, fashion week sweeps into New York twice a year with the grandest of fanfare and disappears as quickly as it appears. Now that the streets outside my building are quiet again (there are always a couple of shows next door...cool but the actual definition of insanity) I can finally begin to digest the whirlwind of a week. Whether it be minimalist make-up and hair, nods to the sixties (and even the nineties), pretty accessories, pops of color, or embellishments galore, there was plenty to like this time around.
Here is the beginning of what is to be a very long list of favorites for the southern child in the city...
