NYFW came and went as usual with it's hurried frenzy. I worked with two new designers this season, JC Obando and Wes Gordon which was exciting. JC Obando's SS 2011 collection at Milk Studios was an interesting mix of futuristic, punk, tough girl power yet fused with free flowing chiffon skirts and feminine bralets. It was inspiring to work with him because he is very experienced, knowledgeable and knows his craft very well. Wes Gordon was a treat to work with as well, this being his second presentation for the recent Central St. Martins grad. His collection shown at the Hotel Empire was well edited, finely tailored and possessed a simple elegance that really appealed to me. His growing success is evident due to his rising popularity with the chic set in NYC.
