Katie Holmes' debut of her Holmes & Yang (Holmes' Stylist) line was a definite highlight of fashion week. This exclusive event prompted IMG to inform the media that only those with a direct invite from Holmes and Yang team will gain access to the venue. The line is said to convey simple sophistication.
Regarding the prevailing trends we saw bold brocade as presented by Lela Rose. Cropped tops by Jason Wu signaled bare midriffs come spring/summer. Marchesa and Vera Wang intrigued us with Indian inspired pieces. Alice and Olivia was all sweet and feminine, kind of a cross between stepford wives and pretty preppy. Orange emerged as the color d' jour and of course there was quite a bit of sparkle and shine. Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs all presented stripes. However, Marc Jacobs' super bold(mod) stripes stole the show.
