Fashion Week: Nanette Lepore (Video)
What: pops of color in citrus yellow opened the show. This is a bright collection with a lot of youth and fresh energy.
Take away: color is here to stay this season, as in Ms. Lepore sent down the runway a yummy array of neons and shebert palettes. Each one of her creation is so bright one will be able to see a Nanette Lepore girl a mile away (doesn't hurt either to show off a little tanned skin). If one wonders if she is still worried about keeping her business mainstay in NYC's garment district, this collection seems to be perfect anecdote of that pessimism.
What we love: her bright colors, and her spirit to stay optimistic. We wish her well in getting what she wants!
