So what is in store for us in the next 10 days for New York Fashion Week? A quick survey of my designer colleagues shows that everyone is working their butts off to put together an amazing collection in time for the show.
I love looking at fashion sketches as they show more of a designer's creative process than just how pretty the garment will look on the model.
Desigual's Manel Jadraque found his muse in the magic and curiosities that are hidden within a city. Son Jung Wan wanted to express emotions in colors like abstract artist Mark Rothko.
Byron Lars is all about seaming and shape in his mad dash party of sketches in the top left.
Angel Sanchez is exploring the duality, quoting Oscar Wilde, "Every Saint has a past, and every sinner has a future."
Zang Toi was masterfully organizing his lineup this week. The theme promises to be a glamorous interpretation of 1930's glamour mixing the Orient in Paris.
Don O'Neill of Theia showed some elegant ladies showing their wild side with a pretty leopard print in pre-fall. The sneak peeks he has allowed us to see for fall 2014 proper are some ritzy gold deco sequin embroidery and fabulous frocks to come.
