Fashion world marks Sept. 11 as shows go on
Even the dresses with pleated skirts were built with tight bodices.
Beckham has made her hallmark out of well-cut geometric clothes, and it’s OK for her to stick with it. It’s the style that suits her best, anyway, as she showed off her post-baby figure in a zip-back shift while she took it all in from the front row.
The heart and soul of Karan’s DKNY brand is New York, and on this anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, she paid tribute to her hometown using one of its most recognizable symbols as backdrop _ the yellow taxi.
Models in loose shirtdresses, sheer sundresses, floppy hats and knee-length board shorts faced a bank of photographers with the doors of the Chelsea studio flung open to display a perfectly positioned taxi.
But New York is only a thread in the nation’s larger fabric, Karan said in her notes. She offered several cheerful looks in bold red, white and blue floral print. There were red-and-blue striped outfits, too.
Diane von Furstenberg’s spring collection, dubbed “Beginnings,” seemed more about renewal.
The looks were fresh and breezy, but not overly frilly or frivolous.
Von Furstenberg was faced with a challenge from the start. As president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, she helps set the international calendar of style previews. New York’s spring shows are always the second week of September, therefore always crossing Sept. 11.
This year, on the milestone 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, it fell on the day of von Furstenberg’s usual time slot.
She couldn’t really change it, nor did she want to, she said in an interview earlier this week, but she had to acknowledge it, too. She found the appropriate balance by handing out American flags to the front row as she took her bow _ hand in hand with creative director Yvan Mispelaere.
