FNO REPORT VIA NEW YORKPosted BY FRANCES MAY ON September 09th, 2011
This morning I went to the Rachel Antonoff presentation. As a Fashion week newbie I learned that a presentation differs from a runway show in that the models are stationary and the audience gets to walk around them. This gives you the opportunity to really examine each piece and for the designer to create a fashion installation. Antonoff’s aesthetic has a very young and fresh vibe. The whole installation and attitude of the girls felt very Wednesday Adams which added a nice balance to the sweetness of the clothes. (Side note: Is the girl in the white eyelet blouse & black skirt from Americas Next Top Model like a million years ago?!) It’s difficult to contain my excitement at these things.
Today was also Fashion’s Night Out and the streets were bananas! My first stop was Love Adorned for a Gem Reading by self proclaimed Gem Intuitive Paul Wagenblast who takes your hands intuitively assigns you your power gems.
Then I headed over to 5th Avenue to the YSL party because my best friend’s boyfriend’s aunt’s YSL guy said that Nikki Minaj was going to make an appearance (Pink Friday on repeat!). Apparently she showed up but all I saw.
