Kimberly Ovitz Spring 2010

Where & When: Wednesday, September 16th from 5-8 p.m., Milk Studios
Runway Recap: Kimberly Ovitz's last name precedes her, and while it would be easy to assume that it's opened doors for the young designer (and it probably has, to some extent), Ovitz has a strong sense of what cool young women want to wear, and her collection was hip yet accessible. Silhouettes varied from long and lean to short and draped, and while at first glance it might seem like a lack of focus, Ovitz knows that her customer needs a variety of dresses--a fitted zip-front sheath and liquid metallic number for the clubs, a sleeveless coatdress and a fluid striped wrap number for work. There was definitely a West Coast vibe to the collection, with shorts figuring prominently in several looks, but we New Yorkers could certainly benefit from a little relaxation. Another presentation at which I found myself shopping while reporting, Kimberly Ovitz is definitely a designer to watch.
Standout Look: An alternative to the party dress, this softly draped liquid metallic cardigan, layered over a black top and skinny pants, looks incredibly cool and could work for everything from dinner to a concert. Suddenly it seems like your wardrobe is missing one, doesn't it?
Bonus Points: I missed him entirely, but apparently Martin Scorsese was there! Also, I will reiterate how much I love the ease and informal nature of presentations, especially at (the relatively serene) Milk Studios.
