Mercedes Benz Fashion Week kicked off Friday in the Bryant Park Tents. One of the most anticipated shows was Erin Fetherston's. This indie fave designer of the fashion set was tapped by Target last year for a diffusion line that launched in November '07.
One of the biggest trends this fashion week is shaping up to be the poufy short skirt. It brings ballerina charm to 20-something girls with nice legs--but it's a lot more forgiving than a bandage dress.
She too wears the poufy skirt cut, this time in dress format. Love his tongue-in-cheek prep-school look with the newsboy cap, bucks, and blazer complete with a coat of arms.
A great transitional look--taking a floral (poufy skirt) dress, cinching it with a black belt and pairing with a little black blazer.

Lynn Yaeger, always in style. The bag with an illustration on front is Lanvin.
Many cute boyish elements--the fedora, the shorts, the pseudo wife-beater, add up to one chic, feminine outfit when paired with T-strap heels.
A model and her handler. As she passed by, she said, "I have about 20 pounds of gold chains on my neck!"
A dress made almost entirely of zippers, by one of New York Fashion Week's sponsors, YKK Zippers.

This is not the most flattering photo of Kate Lanphear of Elle, but she is a style icon, so we must document what she is wearing! Note the structured shoulders of the tuxedo jacket, the skinny black jeans, and tough-looking open-toe booties. The gray metallic python bag isn't too shabby either.
