- Miniskirts: Fashionologie reports that designers are cutting hems across the board, swapping their usual sweeping gowns for short skirts (so many jokes about "cutting back" we want to make right now!)
- Marc Jacobs: Okay, so his show was technically on Monday, but the buzz around the espresso makers this morning was all about his show the night before. WWD even raved that Jacobs had delivered "an over-the-top ode to the New York Eighties that did what fashion is supposed to do: put people in a good mood."
- Bodkin: Former Teen Vogue and Nylon writer actually manages to make stylish clothes that are also sustainable? It really is a miracle. While some of the pieces might have veered a bit close to pajama-leggings for us, some of the more classic tailored shapes—from a white cocktail dress to a parka—were right on the mark. And blessed by the Dalai Lama to boot!
- Rodarte: Not only was the duo's show absolutely gorgeous, but Pierre-Yves Roussel, chief executive officer of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s fashion division, took in the show. Looking for new designers, Monsieur Roussel? Big money!
- Max Azria: Fans of their silky, drapey, ultra-flattering dresses will be disappointed come fall 09 to find that their cocktail party standbys have been replaced by goth-inspired black lace, leather, and velvet. Granted, it kind of looked hot—but not in a "I can't wait to go out and buy this!" kind of way.
- Shenae Grimes: Turns out even celebrities get locked out if they're running too late for the show. Justice!
