i woke up yesterday morning bright and early at 6:30am (ahem, 3:30am california time) to make my way to the steven alan fall 2012 presentation. the first show of fashion week! not only that, but it was an absolute pleasure to be able to take a peek backstage before the show and to get a chance to look at all of the pieces up close and personal. the only downside was that i was just a tad bit bleary-eyed and jet-lagged from my flight, so please excuse me if i am lacking in eloquence today!
the entire collection was stunning yet understated. one of my favorite looks was of a model with a fedora perched neatly atop her head with an easy, belted jacket reminiscent of a mexican blanket paired with a bold red skirt. the collection took a nod to the late diego rivera with it’s south american influences and pops of color, all the while remaining cool and casual. definitely a nice way to kick off new york fashion week!
