Place: The Bowery Hotel

The guests lounged about drinking champagne in what was a very relaxed presentation - a nice first outing this season.

While we liked the eco shorts and shifts [essentially, a separates collection] what really impressed us were the hair/makeup and accessories.
Unlike most first-time starters to New York Fashion Week, this designer didn’t forget the accessories.
There roughly 15 models posed on blocks, all had great patent leather shoes styled British punk style with little ankle socks and little woven clutch purses that reminded of Tomas Maier’s Bottega Venetta.

The hair & makeup: Rock glam all the way. The teased 1980’s manes and smoked eyes would have looked right at home in LA back in the days of early glam rock.
