New York Fashion Week Begins On A Somber Note

Please support The Fat and Skinny Shop!
As you all know New York Fashion begun yesterday with the news of Alexander McQueen’s death.  I think everybody took his death pretty hard. He will be missed. Death and the Snowpocalypse could not stop NYFW. It still moved on at a slower and somber pace. Photos from Style.com.
Vena Cava was amazing. Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock showed what looked like a 1970s Studio 54 meets the wild west. I saw a lot of silk, Western inspired jewelry, and wool. The floppy hats and turtlenecks were a nice touch too. Question to the ladies, will you be sporting Vena Cava’s fall short and fishnet stocking look come fall? Cute yes, but practical? I guess it depends on the climate.
Shipley & Halmos was another awesome collection. Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos really know how to dress a modern woman. The alpaca sweaters and sweatshirts are not only practical for the fall, but they look nice too. The pants were slim fitting, and I even saw a pair of jeans. I wish they would of had a few more jean offerings so there would be a balance between jeans and dress pants. The best thing about the collection were the fur lined coats. Whoever buys them will be so warm next fall.
The thing I liked about Lyn Devon’s collection was that it was full of bright, playful basics that I am sure Audrey Hepburn would have loved to wear. Devon’s collection featured classic cropped and slim pants, cropped shirts, full skirts, playful patterns, and beautiful wool jackets. A perfect collection for the woman who doesn’t like her fashion fussy.
