Fashion Week Day 4

So NY is having quite a good week, fashion shows galore and the Giants winning the Superbowl. None of the morning shows over excited me(er some were good like Oscar De la Renta, but w/e), so we'll just skip straight to the afternoon.

One of my favorite designers, Betsey Johnson, was celebarating 30 years of fashion and gave a show through the decades, starting with the betanik feel of the 1950's. The designs went from black to the fun colorfullness and prints we all know and love. There was abundant dresses, as well as fun bags, glasses, shoes, and belts.The show ended with the models all walking out with bundles of balloons and Bestey not doing one, but two of her signature cartwheels.

Charlotte Ronson's collection kind of reminded me of an Urban Outfitters catalog, but nothing's wrong with that. She mixed girly and delicate clothes with bright colors and some awesome plaid pieces. I can't find a video of the show yet, but it seemed like a good environment and I'm sure had some awesome music playing.

Max Azria's self titled line was the third show he did this week and everything was still awesome and different from the other 2 shows. The clothes were all about looking sexy with see-through items, underwear as outerwear, and cinched belts. There was also gorgeous sweaters and well-constructed dresses. Using dark fall colors and awesome shoes, the Max Azria show was definetly a hit.

With well-constructed jackets, jeweled tone dresses, and just the right amount of shine, the Proenza Schouler show was a hit for me. It was slightly different then what they've done in the past, but I find it to be an upgrade. Accesorized with colored tights and shoes, any of the looks in the show could make an awesome statement for fall.
