Herrera, Posen, Fraser-Swan make it work at Fashion Week

NEW YORK — On Monday, New York Fashion Week chatter was squarely focused on obtaining a ticket for that evening’s Marc Jacobs show, always the hottest catwalk of the week, and one of the most difficult to see in person. Still, there were enough big names showing earlier in the day to appease the masses who could not gain entry to Jacobs’s extravaganza.

Designer Carolina Herrera’s calm and refined style is always a draw for heavy hitters such as Vogue editor Anna Wintour and designer Ivanka Trump, who were perched front row at Lincoln Center Monday for Herrera’s collection of flirty citrus lace dresses, and, of course, her immaculate evening gowns. She employed what is quickly becoming a major color for Spring/Summer 2013 — lemon chiffon — in sophisticated new ways for both youthful separates and cocktail attire. Remarkably, the seasoned designer manages to hit both ends of the generational market consistently, and beautifully, each year.
