If you missed the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York shows on our live player, never fear: we have the autumn–winter 2014–15 collections from Nicholas K, BCBG Max Azria (celebrating 25 years in business), Raoul, Desigual, Tome, Todd Snyder, Creatures of the Wind, Richard Chai, Tadashi Shoji, Mark and Estel, and the Heart Truth Red Dress collection, this year called Go Red for Women, tying in to the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day on Friday.
Celebrities at the Heart Truth show included Nene Leakes in Dolce & Gabbana, AnnaSophia Robb in Alice & Olivia, Taryn Manning in Carmen Marc Valvo, Jill Hennessy in Dennis Basso, Giada de Laurentiis in Carolina Herrera, Lindsey Vonn in crutches wearing Cynthia Rowley, and Ireland Baldwin in Donna Karan. Star Jones hosted the event, along with Macy’s CMO Martine Reardon and the American Heart Association’s CEO Nancy Brown.
It was a largely safe autumn–winter presentation from some designers, with darker, more muted shades being the order of the day one. Exceptions included Raoul and Desigual, in their choice of bolder prints and patterns. Tadashi Shoji was not afraid to go bold, either, with reds and purples, his romantic and elegant eveningwear set in a ‘moonlit Moorish Palace.’ Creatures of the Wind’s Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters went for a greater range of colours, including mint green and a fluorescent yellow, with contrasting silhouettes and approaches. Marissa Webb kept her collection practical and stylish—we predict decent custom come the fall. Mark and Estel, meanwhile, gave a proper glam vibe that celebrated Estel Day and Mark Tango’s love of music and fashion.
