one for me, one for the store....two for me, one for the store....
tuni is my style hero. she is wearing Maurice (DVF sweater with raccoon fur) here and the detail shot is a great combo of necklaces. she is always piling on the jewels and it ALWAYS looks spot on.
Bensoni was a stand out, with a 40's feel. Ben said it was "like a young girl raided her grandmother's closet." It was very "great gatsby" yet completely modern.
Rubber shoes by Melissa are being brought back from the past, with designer collaborations with such greats as Vivienne Westwood & Jean-Paul Gaultier. the shoes are lined with soft velvet and are comfy, waterproof AND flexible!
Byron Lars was a wondrous mix of vintage and modern, playful yet sophisticated with exaggerated shapes and really great fabrics.
Sass & Bide brings in the wave of the future with their detailed and thoroughly modern designs. The look book had a horn shaped piece of plexi on the cover. they are cool all the way!
Improv'd is a great new line of sweaters, leathers and great tees. draping and fabulous neutral colors, along with a doable price point brought this line out in the forefront.
Tracy Reese was actually at her booth making a surprise appearance, chatting up buyers and her reps, all while showing her three fab lines of feminine wearable frocks.
Three days is hardly enough to see everything, especially with so many emerging designers!
Bring on fall 2010!
...even though i'm still anticipating spring!
i will miss the leather, feathers, mesh, and all the other additions to her clothing.
there were some cute pieces, but it was very conservative in general, leading me to believe she lost some financing.
those designs must have cost a lot to produce, as they were very detailed.
the recession has cost us a great talent.
i am even more into my old Roz pieces now! i feel like they are museum worthy, since she is not really fulfilling that vision anymore.

not even 15 minutes passed after the box was delivered, i sawed through it with my house key, and pulled out my Gary Graham spring plaid dress, and was out shooting! ...the very one he was photographed in Vogue pinning for his CFDA finalist article. i am beyond thrilled. it's like inside out plaid. it's darker on the inside...i love him! i put it with his harness belt (i had already envisioned this) and his crinoline skirt, then my iisli crochet leggings (it's still cold, even in florida), and an off white June fur lined suede motorcycle jacket. top it off (or bottom...) with CNC by Costume National cognac boots. glorious! winter into spring, a segway achieved perfectly on this lovely 66 degree day. :)
even though my budget has been cut drastically for clothing, i squeezed this must-have dress in and i know i'll get loads of use from it!
