Marcy Carmack, the stylist who owns Chic Wardrobe Solutions in San Francisco, attended the recent Fall 2009 showings at New York Fashion Week, and has summed up what she saw for her clients. Some of the highlights from her report:
“A major trend for fall is metallic, both gold and silver. Even though we may not be as flush as we used to, we can still feel rich by wearing metallics.
Carolina Herrera did her usual pretty ladylike collection.
Rodarte is always a sought after show and didn’t disappoint. So creative – and the boots! They were so high I don’t know how the models got them on.
Derek Lam was a very modern take on classical sportswear (love the gold houndstooth skirt).
Behnaz Sarafpour had her best show in a couple of seasons that made you think of Hitchcock heroines. It turns out that Behnaz’s husband is a huge fan of Jennifer Siebel Newsom from her role on NBC’s “Life”.
Oscar de la Renta showed on the Upper East Side to the Park Avenue ladies who are his clients.
J. Mendel always a favorite – glamorous, modern and feminine – was a little hard edged this season.
Justin Timberlake and Ben Harper (with David Arquette) designing William Rast and Propr respectively – truly Renaissance men. Laura Dern and Courteney Cox were decidedly un-Hollywood at their husbands’ show. Down to earth and refreshing.”
Marcy is known for helping some of San Francisco’s best dressed women with their wardrobe needs. If you’d like a consultation from her, she can be reached via chicwardrobesolutions.com or by emailing [email protected]
