Fashion News Recap: Designer Celebrations
by Danielle Zabrauskas, Fashion News Correspondent
There are few fashion icons bigger than Carrie Bradshaw, and so it was a pleasure to see the beloved actress behind the character, Sarah Jessica Parker, maintain her fashion ties with the legendary Valentino. The two collaborated for the New York City Ballet’s fall gala, with the designer creating the costumes for the evening’s performances. Featuring sixteen designs in bright organza and black and white tulle, the looks were absolutely stunning.
The designer Erin Fetherston has decided to sell an assortment of her own vintage pieces. With iconic brands offered such as Chloé, Dior and Chanel, the garments are going quickly. If you are searching for a beautiful piece, the limited-time sale is available online through Wasteland.com.
This past week the exhibit “Chloé Attitudes” opened in Paris. The display is an incredible record of Chloé’s history, as seen by the myriad thematic representations of colors and prints. At the opening cocktail party Friday night, crowds and reporters were delighted by the surprise appearance of Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld, perhaps the longest running designer to have worked at Chloé in the brand’s 60-year history.
Meanwhile, the Parisian shows are moving along with strength and elegance. Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2013 collection was characterized by blacks, bursts of color, and pop star tributes. Inspired by artists from Madonna to Michael Jackson, the flashback added a little bit of American pop culture to Paris Fashion Week.
