If ever was there a fav fashion week show of mine, it's DKNY. It's the epic part of my New York trip each season, and usually the last show I see before I fly home. I love ending it on such a good note! Each season, Donna Karan shows at Cedar Lake in Chelsea and it's just as much a who's who as it is the fashion. On our way to the show, famed New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham rode past us on his bicycle, wearing his blue jacket. We chimed, "hi, Bill!" and he responded with a friendly "hello." Such a New York moment.
I'm not sure about you, but I'm a little excited (as a new mom) how things are turning towards sporty chic these days. While I'm not sure I could rock a bright-red dress with crazy platform pumps in my hometown, I do admire those who could. Being comfortable and bold, graphic patterns are something we can all look forward to come spring 2015. Donna Karan's "New York nation" is about beautiful black and white mixed with bold hues of red and blue. Pleats and volume and stripes, oh my! (gimme that crop top) DKNY pulls out all of the brave cards this spring, and I know I can't wait to scoop up some more platform pumps for my dresses.
P.S. What a great crowd at this show...I was able to catch up with Newsday fashion editor Anne Bratskeir (such a doll); Lucky editor Alexis Bryan Morgan (toting her monogrammed Louis Vuitton); Marie Claire accessories editor Kyle Anderson (check out those sunnies); Paper Magazine editorial director Mickey Boardman; blogger Tina Craig of BagSnob; the Beckerman Blog girls; DJ Chelsea Leyland; Victoria Justice; blogger Perez Hilton and, of course, DKNYPRGirl, who was working the room making sure everyone was taken care of. Oh, and did you see my Nina Garcia selfie after the show? ;)
