NYFW: Shows from Day 1
Project Runway winner Christian Siriano's Fall 2011 Collection started with a dark vibe including a beginning color palette of black and gray and a fabric selection of some leather and silk. He chose to emphasize long, lean lines and some a-line silhouettes throughout his collection. It received mixed reviews, but I really liked it overall. I feel like you can see a huge development since his debut.
Behind the scenes
Take a look at this fun The Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection featuring celebs like Patti Labelle, Taraji P. Henson, Eve, and others for the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. This show is done annually as a tribute, and the dresses were by designers anywhere from Zac Posen to Donna Karan. Beautiful!
I love NY fashion week! I can't wait to see what the other shows are going to look like. This is only the beginning, so stay tuned!
