NEW YORK FASHION WEEK SPRING 2011 BACKSTAGE PICS

BOBI, CARAVAN, BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS, LEILA SHAMS

PLUS: Le Tour de Betsey---Betsey Johnson Fashion Show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

A lot has been written about Betsey Johnson...we surely welcomed her runway show back to the Tents this season.

The real standouts---the boho dresses, lots of PINK, the FUN of it all...and how the video with the fabulous grannie biking around town, inspired her collection---a New York outing all around the town.


AND: the designer's commitment to her staff and family.

On the big screen backdrop---we also loved how Betsey visited her boutiques, greeting her sales staff with major hugs ---

---and the family vignettes---


BACKSTAGE at Bobi/Caravan -sponsored by Elle Magazine...







































 At Bright Young Things---where gals modeled ensembles made from sustainable fabrics. Any break through in fashion---not design wise...but perfectly wearable, on trend...and eco minded.



Leila Shams had a packed house for her LES presentation--at her boutique. This designer is known for her leather jackets that are tops with the Gossip Girls and other celebs with smart stylists....





For Spring she ventured into prints on summery separates...

and buttery toned, light leather jackets.
