As day five of New York Fashion Week comes to a close, check out Timo Weiland's solid collection inspired by New York youth culture and outer space, Thakoon's subtly sexy dresses, and Edun's fashion with a conscience. Go here for that and all the rest of our fashion week coverage.
Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein are those hot young designers that everyone is falling in love with. At this point, they're starting to amass a cult following--everywhere I looked at the designers' first-ever runway show Sunday night, I saw one of Timo and Alan's unmistakeable prints--on ladies from all walks of life, from Timo's mom to upper east side socialites to cool kids like Annabelle Dexter-Jones.
In addition to girls about town, Timo and Alan have also been garnering respect from fashion industry heavyweights. They were recently chosen to participate in the exclusive CFDA Fashion Incubator program and CFDA CEO Steven Kolb was sitting in the front row, along with major editors and stylists and even Bill Cunningham.
There's a lot of excitement surrounding Timo and Alan and that showed in the clothes, which truly came alive on the runway.
