White is the new black at NY Fashion Week
Question of the Day
The clothes exuded an earthy kind of natural feel with colors that included, white, indigo, sand, black and copper. There was also a geometric animal print. Hewson said not all the clothes are organic and not all are made in Africa, but they are mindful of making the items in an ethical way.
Vivienne Tam looked east for inspiration for her spring 2011 collection, a line she dubbed “the new silk road.”
The collection was heavy on lace and patchwork in a slouchy, loose style that gave off a modern bohemian vibe.
Tam’s clothes were fit for a global traveler _ the cotton lace patchwork minidresses and jackets that opened the show would have been as at home in a Parisian market as on the Silk Road.
In notes left for editors, stylists and retailers gathered for New York Fashion Week, Tam dedicated the show to the people who survived devastating floods this summer in China and Pakistan.
Lacoste turned to its tennis-design past, outfitting models in a modern take on decades-old tennis pants. The high-waisted pants were baggy in the thigh and tapered at the ankle.
Lemaire’s show, his final one for the brand, featured boxy, geometric, clean shapes with a lot of white, cream, orange, tan, red and black. He also used different textures like net, cotton and nylon.
Georges Chakra’s Editions show was all gowns, many with lines of satin straps inspired by the undulating curves and wraparound bands of the Absolute Towers in Mississauga, Canada.

Never apologetic. Never afraid. Lieutenant Colonel Allen B. West joins Communities to bring tales from the biggest Foxhole of them all, the one inside the Beltway.
Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.
