Lorick Fall 2010

Where & When: Sunday, February 14 from 11-12:30, Union Square Ballroom
Runway Recap: Former model Abigail Lorick's collection is perhaps best known for standing in for Eleanor Waldorf's fashion line on Gossip Girl. Her designs are perfect for the characters on the show, as well as for real-life New York City girls--they're polished enough to wear to lunch at Rouge Tomate uptown but funky enough for a night of partying at the Boom Boom Room downtown. This season, inspired by the concept of angels and cocoons, the former was represented in sky blue dresses and airy gold metallic, while nubby tweeds and forest-like prints referenced the latter. I detected a 1930s undercurrent too, which makes this collection very on trend for fall.
Standout Look: From the powdery-soft blue color to the swirly, intricately ruched skirt, this strapless party dress stood out for its balance of classic femininity and interesting details.
Bonus Points: Sometimes the styling of a show can overwhelm the clothes, and sometimes it's so nonexistent, the clothes look boring as a result. In this case, however, the styling was just right: vintage-looking pillbox hats, glittery tights, Subversive jewelry, slouchy long gloves, and peep-toe booties from Tashkent enhanced Lorick's clothes with a 1930s-meets-East-Village vibe.
