Jacobs' sepia-filtered show wraps Fashion Week
NEW YORK (AP) - Marc Jacobs does the "show" part of a fashion show as well as he does the "fashion". He closed New York Fashion Week on Thursday night with an elaborate production centred around a giant harvest moon that gave off a light that made everyone in the Lexington Avenue Armory appear is if they were in a black-and-white movie. (Photographers were told not to use their flashes.)
Screen sirens in their shiny paillette-covered loungewear - fashion code word for PJs - and glamorous lame and satin slip gowns dramatically circled the runway.
But that left the crowd of retailers, editors, stylists and celebrities, including Miley Cyrus, Sofia Coppola and Christina Ricci, likely wondering what the clothes really looked like.
Jacobs turned up the lights and did the model parade again to allow more focus on the details. It turned out the beaded gaucho outfit was bright purple and the fur skirt suit was green.
