The shows must go on…

I am now a day behind on blogging, because the time seems to fly by here! Between running from one show to the next, trying to catch a meal here and there, and taking a much needed break now and then, the day is gone.BREAKING NEWS…I am definitely confirmed to attend the finale of this season’s Project Runway!!!  I am  beyond excited as I am a big fan of the show!Sunday was Tracey Reese to start the day.  She is such a great designer in part because she designs for real women.  Her styles were so feminine!  Andre Leon Talley from Vogue, Ana Ortiz from “Ugly Betty” and singer Brandy were all front row occupants.  Again, we saw a lot of flesh tones and chiffon, wide leg pants and some cute trench coats.  Soft peach was a key color for this show.  There were also some watercolor prints that I thought were pretty.  Tracey showed some raspberry, purple and kelly green in some of her designs.  I thought this was a very accessible collection.   Herve Leger was the next show and Maria Sharipova,  Joy Bryant,  Michelle Trachtenberg were front row along with some other minor celebs that I am too old to know about!  This was a very full show.  I was not that familiar with this line and I was really surprised by it.  This is a line that is made for the very thin, very tall and very beautiful.  Max Azria designs for this line and he has kept the line true to it’s origins.  The dresses were incredibly short, architectural and form fitting.  They are constructed with elastic panels (or so it seemed) and layered to form the dress.  There were varying shades of gray, along with orange formed into both vertical and horizontal bands of color.  The effect was really striking.  The evening looks were also beautiful and the show ended with what seemed to be bathing suits that wrapped around these beautiful models, although one dunk in a pool or ocean might render them completely ineffective! Tibi was next and so far the collection I liked the least.  This show looked like a throwback to the 80′s.  Very severe padded shoulders and colors that were so saturated that they seemed comic almost.  There were harem pants and lots of pleating.  This was disturbing because if something looks voluminous on a model, what about the rest of us!  There was a few Asian inspired dresses that I liked and the use of a cummerbund style belt in some of the looks was appealing.  Overall, not my favorite show.I had a close brush with Eva Longoria as she was in the tents introducing a new line of M&Ms.  I also passed Nina Garcia, judge from Project Runway, on my way out of the tents.The fun continues here in New York… stay tuned
