GENERAL IDEA S/S 2010

The boys modeling for General Idea seemed like they were preparing for their first day back to school. As the team lined up backstage, they were like boarding school sophomores waiting for convocation to start.Stylists acted the part of nervous mother, fussing to comb their boys' unruly hair.

PROENZA SCHOULER S/S 2010

Bright colors, scuba diving materials, tie dye, and chic animal prints. They don’t sound like they would necessarily work together - however, at Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2010 show, the collaboration created a line of chic, youthful designs full of energy and excitement.  The designers were inspired by sports they grew up with, such as surfing and skating. They took simple athletic items like track jackets and wet suits, and transformed them into high-end commodities.

CALVIN KLEIN S/S 2010

In a drastic departure from last season, Calvin Klein Collection designer Francisco Costa abandoned his sharp hemlines and stark silhouettes for a softer approach to the label’s signature minimalism.  Ushering in a new palate of washed out shades, as so many designers have done this season, the designer took Spring literally and showed a voluminous collection of wind-catching pieces.

L’WREN SCOTT S/S 2010

Those unfamiliar with the story of Madame du Barry would see L’Wren Scott’s Spring 2010 collection as just another slinky, highly body-conscious showing from the designer. But those in the know would take the designer/stylist’s collection for more than meets the eye. Madame du Barry, noted as the title of this collection, was the official mistress to Louis XV.

PETER SOM S/S 2010

Rather than Alice falling down the rabbit hole, Peter Som sent a New York socialite down for his Spring 2010 collection. After a disappointing business season, the designer is back on his feet with a full presentation of slightly kooky designs.

NANETTE LEPORE S/S 2010

With only 28 looks, Nanette Lepore’s collection may well have been the shortest runway show I’ve seen at the Bryant Park tents this season and other designers should well take note of how well-edited and crisp Lepore’s collection was this time around.

MILLY S/S 2010

Milly’s Michelle Smith can always be counted on to deliver a slew of fun, wearable colorful designs, but this season proved slightly different. Yes, every piece in the collection was wearable – from the cloqué beaded jackets to the silk metallic jacquard gathered shorts – but this season Milly opted to jolt a little with an abundance of black.

DOO.RI S/S 2010

Going along with the muted color trend of the season, Doo-Ri Chung presented a mostly ‘shades of gray’ collection. Inspired by the work of artist Annette Messager, Chung was determined to take her usual draped dresses to an edgier place.  By adding chains (another big trend) and netting over her signature cocktail dresses, the collection was indeed edgier by her standards. The opening look gave the viewers a perfect idea of what was to come, a cohesive and sure to be commercially successful collection.

ANNA SUI S/S 2010

Anna Sui sure has staying power.  After being awarded a CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award and recently presenting an Upper East Side-inspired collection for target, the designer showed a fantastic circus-inspired collection for her namesake label.

RODARTE S/S 2010

The silhouettes may seem similar to past collection, but the details have gotten even more complex along with the story behind the Spring 2010 collection. A trip to Death Valley inspired the two sisters' theme behind the mangled creations that were aged, burned and shredded into couture designs. Imagine a woman left for death in the dessert and forced to scrape together rags to cover her exposed body. Tribal tattoes marked models arms hinting that these survivors were warriors against the elements. With pain, suffering and survival, there is beauty. A gothic beauty appropriate with the time that Rodarte seems to take the lead on communicating.

RAD HOURANI S/S 2010

The New York hipster crowd was buzzing about Rad Hourani’s Spring 2010 collection. After his much talked about Rad by Rad Hourani debut a few months ago, the designer had major anticipation surrounding his next collection. Unfortunately, while still enjoyable, his collection proved to be underwhelming. The attendees were dressed in London cool-kid uniforms - sky high platforms, lots of leather, and creative (read: eccentric) ensembles.

NARCISO RODRIGUEZ S/S 2010

It was hard not to stare at the front row at this season’s Narciso Rodriguez show – everyone from Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, and Carine Roitfeld to Courtney Love, Jessica Alba, and Isabel and Reuben Toledo were in attendance. When the lights came down, however, all eyes were on this season’s killer collection.

CATHERINE MALANDRINO S/S 2010

Catherine Malandrino’s presentations are always a favorite of mine because she’s a designer I wear on a regular basis. Malandrino is one of the few designers that has managed to carve out a unique and recognizable niche for herself (and all that without resorting to splattering tacky logos all over the place), that appeals to a wide demographic of women.

BRIAN REYES S/S 2010

For the woman in her 20's and 30's that will one day wear Oscar de la Renta, but who is looking in the meantime to have some lady-like fun, Brian Reyes proves time and time again to be the perfect stepping stone. Reyes showed a nice mix of floor length pieces and super-short party dresses as well as both solids, pops of color, and prints.

SOPHIE THEALLET S/S 2010

The young designer Sophie Théallet burst onto the public scene this year when a certain fashionable First Lady was spotted in her designs. This, plus the designer being a finalist for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, has shot her to the top of the commercial world’s radar. Whereas last season, Théallet showed a native-inspired collection of dresses and separates, this season was more romantic, which seems to be a prevalent trend.

HERVE LEGER S/S 2010

Those bandage tight, extremely crafted, barely there mini dresses from Herve Leger (adored by starlets) have gone a step further this season, and are guarantee to impress. The collection was anything from carb-friendly, but it’s worth a month on the Atkins diet to drape yourself in one of these creations. Especially with the new fabrications and finishing techniques seen in these new versions.

ZAC POSEN S/S 2010

Color blocking, youthful silhouettes and sexy cutouts were the major crowd pleasers at the Zac Posen Monday morning show.  Although the 9 am show time wasn’t a huge favorite among the New York Fashion crowd, the change of venue seemed to be a better fit for this collection full of vibrant color cocktail dresses. Lime green prints and color blocking were paired with cutout overlays, feathers were incorporated into oversized sleeves, and little cartoonish cutouts of hearts and mouths were adorned on the lady like looks for a kitschy twist.

TADASHI SHOJI S/S 2010

The Tadashi Shoji collection was all about - as could be expected - ruching and pleating this season.  The most successful looks where those at the start of the show which were done in a beautiful champagne color, many of which glimmered with embroidery.

JILL STUART S/S 2010

Jill Stuart is always attended by the who’s who of the celebrity reality world, and this season was no different.  Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel, Kelly Bensimon, Dina and Caroline Manzo, Kim Kardashian, and Gail Simmons were all present. In fact with so many reality celebs, it was easy to miss Amanda Bynes and Rachel Bilson.
