This is the first day of Fashion Week. I’ll be covering some of the shows in greater detail after the crush of fashion week information subsides a bit (I really want you to read and absorb some information, not be bombarded). So for now, here are some photos from Nolcha at Fashion Week. Nolcha always has creative, interesting designers. Truth be told, sometimes the shows outside of the tents have a much larger “wow!” factor. This group show at the Ailey Studios included designers Antonia, Castro-Rojas, Riza Manalo, Rebeca Tiago and Baruni. There was plenty of color, lots of lace, headgear that looked like it might belong on Laurence of Arabia, bright colors, and a variety of wearable dresses and pants outfits that should make fashionistas long for Fall, right now!
