Tonight, the US winner of the prestigious Woolmark prize will be named. But before that happens, take a peek at the sketches submitted by all ten finalists.
While the fashion industry tends to favor the tall ('Dwarf' Cara Delevingne knows this all too well), the Fashionista team probably has a median height of 5'3." Karlie Kloss's denim line is of no interest to us shorties. In fact, you're more likely to find us in the Crewcuts section of J. Crew than anywhere else. However, Anthropologie may have just become our new favorite shopping destination.
Last year, Woolmark revived its International Woolmark Prize, a global fashion competition that is credited with springboarding the careers of Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld in the '50s. Today, the U.S. finalists have been announced and the list includes some of our favorites. They are:
Today, KCD will host its seasonal open house, where market editors, stylists and other fashion types will be given the opportunity to see the latest collections from the PR powerhouse's roster of brands—including Givenchy, Chloe and Marc by Marc Jacobs—up-close. Mostly everyone attends KCD's press day because it's filled with great brands that magazines (and, increasingly, websites) want to shoot. That's why it's such a coup for three-year-old accessories line Reece Hudson to show its Fall 2013 collection alongside KCD's clients. As an emerging label, the company can't afford to pay KCD a monthly retainer for representation. But designer Reece Solomon and business partner Max Stein are mentored by KCD senior vice president of public relations, Renee Barletta, through the CFDA incubator program.
We visited the CFDA Incubator (where 10 hand-picked emerging designers are provided with studio space--which they still pay for at a monthly rent--and mentoring for about two years) for a market day during fashion week and kind of didn’t want to leave. There were lots of positive vibes. In addition to checking out the latest from designers like Timo Weiland, Daniel Vosovic, Whit and Isaora, we decided to try and find out what it's like to work in a shared space with a bunch of other designers--something designers don't really do, unless they're on Project Runway (though Vosovic tells us this is totally different).
"We usually get very bright and graphic with our prints, but I was feeling a little moody this season, so we did this kind of romantic, late 60's-early 70's inspiration," says Steven Alan alum (and Kate Spade niece) Whitney Pozgay of the starting point for her latest collection, which debuted to a packed house at the W Union Square this afternoon.
It's only day two, so you can't be behind yet! To make sure you keep up, here's another round of show notes: WHiT dared to mix patterns in the best way, Creatures of the Wind referenced 60s couture, and Richard Chai Love got sporty.
