In a rare moment, the scientific and fashion community overlapped on the Fendi runway today when Karl Lagerfeld sent a collection of frills and ruffles down the catwalk. “They’re not ruffles, they’re waves,” the designer corrected backstage before the show, making reference to electric and gravitational waves that he translated into an entire show of rippled fabric.

Feb 22, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Beyoncé looks killer in a skin-baring, bedazzled mini dress, but not everyone can pull off such a theatrical design. Julien Macdonald, on the other hand, thinks the look was made for the masses. As is his forte, the designer sent skintight dresses, barely-there fabrics and a series of strategically cut out numbers down the Fall 2016 runway.

Feb 22, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Fur, embellishments and metallic fabrics might seem like an ultra-lush collection for most ready-to-wear lines, but for Gilles Mendel it’s par for the course. For the Fall 2016 J. Mendel line, he chose to simplify his usual aesthetic and designed the silhouettes to be chic, effortless and uncomplicated—though the same can’t be said for anything else in the collection.

Failure to Fortune: Notable Designers That Overcame Runway Disasters

Feb 20, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen and Hedi Slimane are some of the biggest names on the Fashion Week calendar, but that wasn’t always the case. Before they made a name for themselves in the industry, they all had a series of horribly failed collections that could have made their entire career come to a screeching halt. Some were just starting off and understandably green, while others were transitioning from one label to the next and still hadn’t managed to find their footing.

Delpozo's Dystopian Runway

Feb 18, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

At first glance, the Fall 2016 Delpozo runway seemed like just another beautifully imaginative rendition from creative director Josep Font. But this season the bright colors and floral detailing was inspired by the urban dystopia of Metropolis, the 1927 sci-fi film, and the dark digital illustrations of Daria Pertilli, an Italian artist whose surreal work focuses on women surrounded by nature.

Feb 17, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Cousins Shaikha Noor Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa are no strangers to loud prints, bold colors and modest cuts, which is why their Noon by Noor Fall 2016 collection came as such a surprise.

Feb 17, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

For years the Rag & Bone runway has been a NYFW favorite.

Feb 12, 2016  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

The hot topic of the season has been the idea of restructuring the classic Fashion Week model, and today Wes Gordon joined the ranks of designers forgoing the traditional runway. For Fall 2016, he presented his collection entirely online in a series of nine GIFs posted to his Instagram account. “It can be kind of limiting—four white walls, six minutes to tell our story,” Gordon told WWD. “There are 600 shows on the calendar.
