Thuy Fall 2009
Where & When: Sunday, February 15th at 3 p.m., the Salon, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Thuy Diep's show started with several chic black and gray looks, but just when I started to think, "Uh-oh, here we go again with the monochromatics," out came cobalt blue, bright yellow, greenish prints, and, finally, white and silver. From work-friendly blazers, blouses, and pants to loose-fitting cocktail dresses (a girl after my own heart!), Diep has clearly thought about her customer and what she needs to wear for day and for night. I particularly liked the fun metallic-fringe skirts and curving zipper detailing on the skirts.
Standout Look: The dresses were among the strongest pieces in the show, and those with nipped-in waists, such as this printed one with a flattering crisscross effect in the bodice, have a silhouette that stands the test of time (and thus is worthy of an investment).
Bonus Points: After seeing so many shows where only the front row gets the swag, it was nice to see everyone with a seat got a gift bag. Also, music included one of my new favorite songs, "Rich Girls," by the Virgins.
