Showing its dedication to cutting edge style, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicked off yesterday in its stunning new uptown location – the Lincoln Center!
Opening the week was Project Runway and its fourth season winner Christian Siriano respectively.
Judges Jessica Simpson, Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia were all on the front row watching their protégés showcase their collections.
Heidi Klum opened the Project Runway show wearing a hot red trouser suit – and brights were a clear trend running through the show as budding designer Valerie Mayen went for fuschia pink, while Ivy Higa opted for sunshine yellow.
Following Project Runway, Christian Siriano went for more muted, desert tones, featuring caramel leathers, cream flare-cut trousers, camel hotpants, white strapless organza and taffeta dresses, along with dressier eveningwear in exotic terracotta and red prints.
With BCBG MAX AZIA and Nicole Miller showcasing their collection today, tomorrow's hot tickets have to be Z Spoke by Zac Posen, Jill Stewart and Prabal Gurung - come back for our daily round-up!
