BCBGMAXAZRIA S/S 2012- New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week opened its doors today just a few hours away from Fashion Night out. 
I attended the BCBGMaxAzria Spring/Summer 2012 show today at Lincoln Center. As soon as you arrive you couldn’t  help but notice everyone was in great spirits. Despite the heavy rain all morning in New York you couldn’t help but feel the great energy at the Theatre today. Everyone seemed so excited to kick off fashion week. From sightings of editors, publishers and many fashionistas (some wearing the FNO t-shirt) the buzz was just about to begin and it was palpable. 

So once the runway was ready, the audience was seated and the lights were dimmed. The music by Hercules & Love Affair (My House, “Stopmakingme Remix”) started and here come the models….
The silhouettes were light and airy with bright and neutral tones. There were tribal prints dresses with embroidery and pleats. The hems were elongated and paired with platform wooden sandals and metallic clutches.  There was a sexy edginess mixed with a soft palette that made this collection glamourous but very modern.   
Here are a few of my personal photos from the show. It was definitely a great start to the most fabulous and exciting week in New York.
