from the Y-3 S/S '10 show
Today was my last day of shows, and I'm a bit brain dead. Please excuse the lazy style post. I ran into the lovely Trish and Mo of Smashing Darling, and over lunch in Soho, we had a bit of a laugh over how my writing over at Dossier Journal was going for New York Fashion Week. "You know," I said. "The most difficult part is that I've been running out of ways to say 'elegant,' 'draping' and things like that to describe the clothes."
I will return to do a full recap of some of my favorite shows during my crazy whirlwind Fashion Week experience, but I leave you with a "Runway Review Mad Libs" (feel free to print it out and play along at home!) and a picture (above) of the Y-3 show, which ended with a few fun soccer-style kicks by models and Yohji Yamamoto himself. Probably the only show where I found myself laughing out loud in delight before the finale.
