New York Fashion Week Fall Coverage

Day 5

— February 5, 2008 — Fashion
Designers showing their collections at NYC Fashion Week today included Badgley Mischka, Monique Lhuillier and the much anticipated Diesel label.

After the first four days of Mercedes-Benz Fall 2008 Fashion Week, several trends are beginning to reveal themselves as the final designers show their ideas of what the world's style savvy should be dawning.

As soon as the shows are over, the photos snapped and journalistic notes taken are sent away to designers who will quickly create knockoffs. It won't be long before fast fashion retailers bring these looks into stores, so even if you can't afford to wear Miss Sixty or Carolina Herrera, chances are, a cheaper alternative can be yours in coming weeks. Piracy is unfortunate, but it's part of the industry.

The video shows a recap of yesterday's Betsey Johnson show.

February 5 Collections:

Tibi - Kicking off at the Salon at 9 a.m. was Amy Smilovic collection with feminine prints and eye-pleasing colours. As always, the collection was inspired be her own personal lifestyle; the designer says she draws inspiration from her travels in Asia and Europe.

Badgley Mischka - This show took place at the Tents at Bryant Park and included tailored looks followed by evening gowns and very glittering eye makeup. All looks will no doubt be scooped up by VIPs... some of which failed to show for the early 10 a.m. start. Celebs who did attend included Jaime King, Aisha Tyler, Eliza Dushku, Marcia Gay Harden and of course Vogue's famous editor, Anna Wintour.

Monique Lhuillier - If I had to choose a gown for the Oscars, or needed to dress my bridesmaids, this show at the Promenade would have been the place to do it. There were plenty of flowing, feminine fabrics like organza and tulle, but also a range of day wear which had a neutral palette. Grey toned pieces were able to set a smoky mood easily, particularly as paired with the dark, smudged liner around the models' eyes.

Cynthia Steffe - The New York fashion designer showed her fall collection at the Salon.

Dennis Basso - Not afraid to show his love of luxurious furs, Basso showed an opulent collection at the Promenade. The show will be highly debatable among animal rights activists like PETA, but instantly adored by admirers of all things chinchilla and mink.

Diesel - The 3 p.m. at the tents was a highlight of the day as the Italian label paraded the runways with their signature denim designs along with an all too hip collection of other ready to wear pieces. They expanded their line further with the debut of Black Gold, a higher end division which will offer items for the more affluent fashionistas.

Matthew Williamson - 36 year old Williamson showed his fall line at Lux Studios on West 18th St at 5 p.m. His name has become a familiar one among the fashion savvy, yet at the mention of his name, his distinctly glittering looks are often not the first thing to come to mind. It was a clearly fun line that offered pieces that would fit well into any wardrobe.

Joanna Mastroianni - The New York designer showed at the Salon and displayed a line geared at younger generations who want to have fun with their wardrobes while still evoking an air of sophisticated. Mastroianni's looks are also popular among older A-listers including Sharon Stone, Michelle Pfeiffer and Melanie Griffith.

Vivienne Tam - The Chinese designer, who now lives in New York, closed the day's fashion events at 7 p.m. when she showed off her collection at the Promenade. This was her second big publicity gig in the last weeks as she received a lot of media attention for the Mickey and Minnie Mouse costumes she designed for Hong Kong Disneyland at the end of January.
