Fashion month favorites I: NYFW

It’s obvious Alexander Wang can do no wrong. Just thinking of the process each garment went through makes me want to write him a song. (Check here for previous song dedicated to Alaia) For those of you who think this collection was simply stitched up: BOOYA, you couldn’t be further from the truth. So here’s the deal; one late summer night in July, Mr Wang was sitting at his studio thinking about how mainstream garment construction has become and so it hit him; he’d gather leather garments, cut them into pieces then loosely sew them back together with a sort of see-through panel that left strips of skin visible. I wish i could say that was all, but it’s not. For the final walk, the lights were dimmed and all of a sudden the outfits began to glow in the dark. The End.

Here’s what the critics had to say:

More than merely engineered for the in crowd, the lineup was sophisticated and very smart.” WWD

The show already felt vital and dynamic–then came its vibrant ending: Models lined up for a glow-in-the-dark effect that changed graphic into color, bringing an ovation from the crowd.” International Herald Tribune

If any New York designer is setting the agenda in modern fashion it is Alexander Wang, whose latest collection was a surgically re-constructed interpretation of the modern urban uniform that managed to be beautiful and gutsy, bizarre yet plausible.” Fashion Wire Daily

It’s rare, during New York Fashion Week, to attend a show that has audiences literally cheering aloud. At Alexander Wang’s Spring 2013 show today, that’s precisely what happened.” Fashionologie
