    PORTS 1961| Runway Fall 2009 Collection-Mercedes Benz Fashion Week… Inspired by exotic India the Ports 1961 fall 2009 collection was beaming with rich color, luxe fabrications, metallics and attention to the tiny details in accessories and overall construction.

  • NY Fashion Week: Chado Ralph Rucci fashion show review


    CHADO RALPH RUCCI | Runway Fall 2009 Collection-Mercedes Benz Fashion Week… It was like being in an Asia-inspired Blade Runner!

    REBECCA TAYLOR | Runway Fall 2009 Collection-Mercedes Benz Fashion Week… A warm colored presentation of feminine pieces mixed with some edge and balanced with an air of innocence best describes the Rebecca Taylor fashion show for fall 2009. I picture these pieces on a cute, mousy girl at an art gallery opening sipping red wine, a little bit quirky, very creative and intuitive, she stares at the art with question but really she is wondering why Wendy ever left Neverland….

  • NY Fashion Week: Custo Barcelona fashion show review


    CUSTO BARCELONA | Runway Fall 2009 Collection-Mercedes Benz Fashion Week… Love Custo!!! I realize Custo Barcelona clothing may come off as ridiculous to some, it makes no sense, but that is what is to love about it!!! Wild patterns, a million colors all at once, texture mixing and playing no where near the rule book – fashion on acid – doesn’t that sound amazing?! >> More Mercedes Benz Fashion Week photos of the Custo Barcelona fashion show   There was…
