Willow Fall 2008
Where & When: Friday, February 8th at 2 p.m. in the Salon, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Australian designer Kit Willow always ends up on those "up-and-coming designer" lists but then for some reason never quite hits it big. Which is too bad, because her collection was filled with great dresses and separates, and even a superbly tailored three-piece suit. Willow embellished most pieces with exposed zippers, grommets, or lacing, which made them stand out from the asymmetrical draped satin pieces we've seen on other runways.
Standout Look: Here are five fall trends, all in one place: the long vest, the drapey charmeuse blouse, the defined waist, the bubble skirt, and over-the-knee boots. Thankfully, all of these pieces are understated and chic, which prevents the look from fashion victimization.
Bonus Points: The lighter colors and airy fabrics looked refreshing (and almost spring-like) in comparison to the heavy tweeds and plaids at many other shows.
