Diane, how could you…
This is how it is: of all the designers across the globe, New York possesses designers who create practical clothing and truly have an array of women on their mind. Furthermore, New York contains the most variety of designers of any major fashion capital. For those looking to stay on top of the trend, look no further than Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan. If you’re in need of hot new party gear, talk to Alexander Wang and Hervé Léger’s Max & Lubov Azria. Rodarte and Calvin Klein can be of some assistance in channeling the latest ‘futuristic’ vibe in your wardrobe. For working women, who choose to look fabulously chic from day to night, Michael Kors and Derek Lam are the men to see. Elegant evening wear is usually one of the highlights of any collection, and Oscar de la Renta delivered for women who want it. Lastly, if you want a little bit of everything and more, Jack and Lazaro of Proenza Schouler might be on Twitter ;). I ♥ NEW YORK. I’m going to do this for each major fashion week, but let’s begin where it always starts. The 10 best collections from NYFW (New York Fashion Week):
