This is what my invitation for Fashion Week said for the dress code. Somehow, I think that this sums up event-wear so much better than some descriptions … and it is certainly better than the similarly named business casual.
I have now added this into my vocabulary and use it regularly. I suggest you do too.
Now…here are some pictures from the last two nights of fashion week (they are a mix of my photos and my friend Kerry’s photos—she came along for the ride). My favorite of the week was by a Bangladeshi designer name Aneela Haque. I thought she did a great job of taking traditional Eastern techniques and styles and updating them and bringing in a little Western flare (without trying to Westernize them too much). Hers are the first garments pictures.
