A snowy day at New York Fashion Week it was, but as the adage goes, the show must go on. And show they did.
• Vera Wang pushed the whole - this is a women's collection, NOT bridal - thing to the extreme (but in a good way), showing a collection almost entirely comprised of black, with gussied up party pieces that have just enough edge to work uptown and down.
• Sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy proved as creative as ever in constructing - or should we say deconstructing - fall 2010 looks for their label Rodarte. Bits of plaid, spidery knits, lace, and mohair were pieced together, draped, and wrapped for an expertly executed, craft-y chic vibe.
• In keeping with the day's upbeat vibe, Derek Lam summoned his inner cowboy, CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner Sophie Theallet channeled princesses of childhood folk tales, and Alice Temperely got groovy with vintage sixties styles stripes and prints.
