All 28 of the designers showing at Made's Milk Studios and Standard Hotel spaces next week are worth paying attention to. But we're especially excited about the seven designers who are joining their ranks for the first time.
Last night CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nominee SUNO hosted its first-ever runway show at Milk. Perhaps it was the CFDA recognition that encouraged the brand to mature in many ways, from a presentation to a show, from kooky mixed prints to ladylike complementary patterns. Minutes before the show, I speculated with a friend about how well SUNO's intensely layered looks, complicated prints, and detailed accessories would translate to the five-second-glimpse of a look one gets at a fashion show... Not well, we decided. SUNO's designers Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty must have agreed with us, since the kooky art-teacher-on-vacation vibe that permeated SUNO shows of yore was replaced with nothing short of ladylike glamor.
