Fashion Week NYC : Happy Endings

Marc Jacobs closed the curtain on NYC Fashion Week '11, with his show held at the Lexington Avenue Armory in Manhattan. His collection remained true to the common thread this season, expressing recession-chic.

The inspiration; twenties flapper with his own aesthetic reflected in basic silhouettes.
While some perceived the individual garments as "flat", each overall look was uplifted by color and fabric.
Clearly sheer, many runways this season were see-through, further emphasizing the thinness of our skin in a dwindling economy. Fashion Week '11 draws to a close, at least delivering beauty to a time of otherwise uncertainty.


However, Mr. Jacobs had other matters on his mind while his models worked the collection. He was dressing to impress for sure, as he is also in the running to inherit the coveted position of couturier at Dior, which was formerly held by John Galliano. Although true couture is an endangered species of fashion it is the blood which runs through all designers and hopefully Marc Jacobs can replenish it.

Headlines will continue to follow the negotiations to reposition the Dior house on the fashion map and perhaps change the course of couture.
