It was more about the scene than the clothes at newbie Catherine Holstein's Fall 2008 presentation at the Thom Bar Thursday night. Almost all in a row, we spotted Amy Astley, two editors from Vogue and a photographer from Vanity Fair in the crowd of mostly New School students. The room was so packed with people (from fashion editors to a slew of bystanders in sweatshirts,) it was almost a push/shove situation to make your way over to the little side rooms where the actual clothes (oh, it was a Fashion Week thing?) were on display. So, the clothes? We loved it, even if the models in fake nerd glasses were a little much. As far as Cat Holstein is concerned, this fall is all about slouchy cool made up with structured bottoms and loose tops. The most striking aspect of her presentation was the use of Miro-inspired prints (Holstein decorated the space with Miro-inspired sketches of her own design,) on flimsy, worn tees - just the kind of off-hand use of something significant that the Parsons crowd adores. Meanwhile, we're adoring the super stiff skirts that stand up on their own (check it out after the jump) - but maybe paired with Hanes undershirts to avoid the clash look at work. And it's not even officially Day 1 of the Week...
