DKNY Spring 2013 Show Report - Here's What it Means to be a New Yorker
The most amazing thing at the spring 2013 DKNY show—besides the clothes, the celebrities, the seamless organization, and the models—was the staging. Instead of a conventional catwalk, where the models emerge onto the runway from backstage, at the DKNY show, the editors, buyers, celebs, and VIPs sat indoors and the models walked in from off the street—yes, as in outside. It was super-cool. Check out this video of the finale to get an idea:
We're guessing it was all part of the season's theme—as laid out in the run-of-show manifesto placed on every seat (top), which reads:
What's a New Yorker? Someone's who ready for anything. Day to night. Street to chic. She loves a contradiction; it defines her style. Just give her the elements, she'll take it from there. For her, fashion is personal, an endless possibility of expression. Just like her city.Front row at the show spectacle were boldface names including Louise Roe, Ashley Green, Holland Roden, Kelsey Chow, and Lianne La Havas:
