Tommye: Maria just makes really wearable clothes.

Me: She really does.

I sat next to Tommye—of Fashionologie fame—yesterday morning at the Zero + Maria Cornejo show. The collection was presented in a gorgeous gallery space on the westside, just off 11th Avenue. The sun was beaming through the skylights and grew stronger as the time neared noon; It was the perfect arena to view a collection.

"For both the men's and women's collections, I was exploring the structure of perfectly crafted tailoring, but wanting to remake the rules and push things off balance," designer Maria Cornejo said, of her AW10 collection.
