The show seemed to come straight out of the 40s, with menswear-inspired pieces and hems below the knee. The color palate was mostly muted, with black, burgundy and navy blue. But at the end, the designer pumped up the volume with bright silk red dresses and jumpsuits with embellishment and embroidery.
Simple and refined, the models had a bold red lip with a clean face and strong brows — proving that you don’t need an overflow of eye shadow to make an impression.
I was surprised: I expected the blizzard to deter the crowds at the tents. But lo-and-behold, people came out with full force (and a lot of fur). Even though the models looked buttoned up at this show, the vibe was fun and relaxed — the front row was bopping to the beat of the music.

Plenty of bloggers at this show! Celeb guests included Olivia Palermo, Poppy Delevingne and Nigil Barker.
As I was leaving the show, I noticed giant trashcans by the doors filled with water. Unfortunately, the temporary fabric used to construct the buildings in fashion week weren’t withstanding Nemo’s wrath. Yes, you read right: The tents were leaking.
