These are a few of the designers we managed to photograph as they left their shows.
Marc by Marc Jacobs chose ’70s silhouettes in bright stripes.
With rocker husband Gavin Rossdale and son Kingston sitting front-row, Gwen Stefani for L.A.M.B. delivered an African-inspired collection. And wow, does this lady have a following! A large crowd gathered in the drizzling rain waiting for the designer/singer/songwriter to exit the building.
“For spring 2011, we were inspired by the stylish film, ‘White Mischief’. We were fascinated by the idea of a woman with a very languid, proper veneer with a smoldering sensuality just beneath the surface.” Mark Badgley and James Mischka
Carolina Herrera’s line was inspired by two things: the traditional clothes of Korea and botanical plates collected in the eighteenth century.
Michael Kors ‘naturaluxe’ style was relaxed sophistication.
Isaac Mizrahi’s spring collection was called IM Xerox, his take on photocopy-like prints.
Tracey Reese’s muse was a traveler of both time and space.
Herve Leger by Max Azria, well-known for his bandage dress, presented a corseted Marie Antoinette of the future. His wife, Lubov Azria, is of course in one of his latest creations.
Cah razy colorful Betsey Johnson used a bike ride through New York City as her runway setting. La Tour de Betsey stopped in Brooklyn, Central Park and ended at Times Square. She then finished her show with her signature cartwheel…we also need to mention she’s 68 years old!?!
