New York fashion week begins on confident note
NEW YORK (AFP) - New York Fashion Week - the start of a month of spring-summer 2013 shows - began on a confident note on Thursday, despite tough economic times, with collections from BCBG Max Azria and Nicholas K.
With consumers' morale at a relative low, Max and Lubov Azria at BCBG Max Azria offered up a decidedly sexy, feminine collection for next summer - nothing too provocative, with lots of lace and transparent garments.
There was a nearly all black-and-white look from the designer couple, with a few flashes of coral. Most dresses were sleeveless, but hemlines were demure - most past the knee and several to the floor.
But the lace detailing and sheer fabrics offered hints of the sexy BCBG Max Azria woman beneath.
