I always love the spring collections. I'm really curious to see what Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Alexander Wang, and Proenza Schouler do this season.

Richard Chai just started on the live stream.

The womenswear looks are pretty disastrous to me. The color story is very disjointed, though many of the fabrics could make nice cushions or curtains. I'm particularly appalled by what I'm going to call "skrants," which is a skirt attached to the front only of a pair of paints. The proportions throughout were just wrong. A lot of pants hit at odd lengths and then there were mini skirts over long pants. A lot of the styling was off for me. Aline Weber, who is a terrific model, look ghastly with neon blue lipstick.

The menswear was a mixed bag, but I did see several individual pieces that I liked. There was a really slouchy black look with a half trench in the beginning that I loved. There is also a neon coral jacket that I adored and a pair of blue pants with a maroon stripe down the side that I really liked.

This was a strong group of models, but most of them looked like they were thinking "what the f*ck am I wearing?"

This thread will definitely contain rampant Project Runway :COP: conjecture, speculation, and :drama: as photos and attendee reports leak out.

Which makes me chuckle ... the order of presentation and perceived quality of collections always fools everyone over at least one designer's fate. E.g. Amy from a couple of seasons back (for the former) and Anthony from the same season (for the latter).

I hope Anthony Ryan is on the runway. They may have decoys but if he is there then he could still be in it!

Everyone who is in the show after tonight will probably be on the runway tomorrow. That's how they did it last season when 10 designers showed at Fashion Week. I bet Anya had the 13 year old that work for her sew a hell of a collection :rofl:

:lol: I bet you are right. I wonder if they gave her a stiff talking to about having to sew her own things and not letting someone else do it. This wont matter if she isn't final 3.

We need to go work as dressers for the mens collections during fashion week :grope:

Ooh, good idea. :grope: Even better if those two boys need helping dressing for those outfits, as they'd be exactly as dumb as I like my boy toys.

Those studious glasses on the one almost fooled me. Almost.
