Na•Be by Victorya Hong
Where & When: Friday, February 1st at 8 p.m., Metropolitan Pavilion
Runway Recap: Love her or hate her, you have to admit that Project Runway designer Victorya Hong is talented--she won three challenges before getting auffed last week with her chic but uninspired denim trench. Reading her program notes about being a "child of the '80s" made me a bit nervous, but Hong sent out a rather polished collection of work-friendly separates. The '80s inspiration came across in slim but slouchy trousers, shoulder-padded jackets, and shots of chartreuse. No leggings or dolman sleeves here--it's all a more polished, sophisticated way to wear the resurgent '80s looks.
Standout Look: Blazers and trousers like these were tailored so well, I'm almost upset we didn't see more of them on Project Runway.
Bonus Points: Christian, Elisa, and Jack, as well as Jay McCarroll from season one, made the front row seem like a Project Runway reunion.
