RALPH LAUREN

Lauren visited the fineries of Asian fashion in bright-dragon embroideries, silks and satins, and the perfect fit of a slim silhouette.

This wasn’t a journey to bustling, contemporary China. It was regal and elegant with slinky velvet gowns and colorful jackets.

“I have always loved the glamour and sophistication of the 1930’s and its Art Deco and Chinoiserie influences. I see it as relevant and modern now,” Lauren said after the show.

There were many red-carpet evening gowns, which is not always his norm. A black-velvet column gown with a beaded jade-and-silver halter neckline, and the finale look, silver high-neck halter gown paired with a silver beaded hood, were among the most special.

ISAAC MIZRAHI

He put the icing on New York Fashion Week.

Mizrahi sent poodles tinted pink, yellow and blue down his runway, along with tiered cakes to match his line of dresses in the same shades. Models wore poodle-esque black poofs on the top of their heads.

Large oversized bows draped over shoulders or across the backs of the line. Poodles popped up as pins at the waist.

Mizrahi, in a black poodle jacket, ran down the catwalk with one of the pooches at the end.

NAEEM KHAN

Khan received a standing ovation on closing night for a collection filled with what he does best: High shine and elegant glamour.

The Indian-born designer’s dresses were often blackless, sometimes flowing and most always glittery, some with beaded bodices, embroidered with floral threadwork and trimmed with ostrich feathers.
