A Bite of the Big Apple

February 11 of NYC Fashion week was again a sight for the senses. 

  The anatomical lines were blurred on the catwalk.  Peter Som’s menswear inspired wool and double oxford’s were spiked with a little feminine sparkle, While young designer Jason Wu managed to make his boxy shapes look beautiful.

Costello Tagliapietra and Rebecca Taylor both chose looks that had definite retro vibes about them. Soft prints, dresses with fluttery sleeves, blue jeans, chiffon and bright colors gave us the hope that spring is right around the corner.
