Fashion week in NYC has officially begun and the most exciting aspect for me was going to my best friend’s fashion presentation:
Safe by Rebecca Turbow A/W09-10 at the Moeller Snow Gallery. As I mentioned last week, many labels young & old have taken to galleries and more intimate spaces to showcase their collections. What was nice about the Moeller Snow Gallery were the multiple levels (one staircase leads to a balcony where the dj set up, another to an area for the models to change), and the long rectangular shape. Platforms were set up against 3 walls for the band of gray, black & silver clad models to ascend and pose for onlookers. The live show lasted about 2 hours, provided ample alcohol for the drunkenistas and was a success indeed. I was in awe of the accessories Rebecca’s intern created for the show (as pictured above) and the ensembles were the most romantic pieces I’ve seen come out of her monotone world, which has recently switched from exclusively turquoise & white (which I admit after the fact was quite martian-like) to everything silver, gray & white. Bravo!
