NEW YORK — It was difficult to be weary of the more than 30 New York Fashion Week shows that took place here on Monday, followed by another 30 on Tuesday, if for no other reason than the caliber of talent showing had the elixir-like quality of Red Bull.
You could almost hear “Absolutely Fabulous” character Edina Monsoon ticking off her famous line “Everybody’s there, everybody! Big names, you know, Chanel, Dior, Lagerfeld, Givenchy, Gaultier, darling. Names, names, names.” Only it wasn’t the French ateliers showing, but instead the biggest names in American fashion: Thom Browne, Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang. Yes, names, names, names, darlings. Here’s a look at some of the names that made the start of the week exciting.
