In reviewing the collections from this past week, I’ve come up with what I consider to be the top 5 houses, and one totally misguided effort. This was a season that had no one direction – each designer that excelled had their own distinct vision. The two prevalent ideas on the runway that I came away with were that dressing had a little more ease to it, and that bold colors were often combined in most unusual ways. In the end, it all seemed to make sense.
This past Sunday I attended DELPOZO’s premiere New York runway show. It was staged in the Starrett-Lehigh Building on the 14th floor with a gorgeous view of the Hudson River. I predicted Josep Font (the firm’s creative director) was going to be the STAR of Fashion week Fall/Winter 2013 runway, and I was spot on with my prediction.
Loosely translated, ‘Las Estrellas En Ascenso’ means ‘The Rising Stars’. Last week I sat down with one of those stars, my good friend Jim Villa, to discuss his representation of who I am predicting will be the BREAKOUT STAR of the New York Fall/Winter 2013 runway shows this week.
It’s fashion week in New York and I’m wondering – am I the only person that quietly imagines the possible mash-ups between fashions latest arbiters and the luminaries of interior design? I spent part of last evening reviewing the collections of the day on Style.com (my not-so-secret internet vice.) Of course it would be hard to say that an interior designer was directly influenced by a fashion designer, or vice-versa, but I like to ponder the possibilities.
Here are my picks for the best fashions from today’s runway shows, and the women of the interior design industry I’d like to dress in them. Who knows, I might have a career in personal shopping. These combinations have me imagining a Bergdorf Goodman – Barney’s New York – Saks Fifth Avenue marathon, with architectural drawings, a scale ruler, and a bag full of swatches in hand.
