The Fashion Week Diaries: Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang, Tibi, Marc By Marc Jacobs, Herve Leger By Max Azria, Rodarte

Lincoln Center in New York City was a bustling hub yesterday during New York Fall 2011 Fashion Week, where some of our fave designers (Tibi, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Hervé Léger, Rodarte, Vera Wang, and Badgley Mischka) were showing off their wares.

BADGLEY MISCHKA: All-out glamour was the name of the game at Badgley Mischka, where models (with 1950s style rolled hair) stepped out in crystal-studded tops, red carpet-worthy gowns and opulent knits.

VERA WANG: For us, Vera Wang’s Fall 2011 collection read ballerina-meets-punk rock, and we loved every bit of it. The fashion-forward line included tons of pleated chiffon dresses of the floaty and fur-trimmed anoraks, which were teamed with a rugged/futuristic makeup look.

TIBI: While Tibi’s fall collection may have been minimalistic with a slight industrial feel, it was still completely girly. Just check out the ruffles, sheer shoulders, and short-short sillhouettes!

MARC BY MARC JACOBS: With a runway done up to look like a school gymnasium, Mr. Jacob’s Fall 2011 fashion show seemed to be an ode to his high school days in the late ’70s and early ’80s (not to date him, or anything!). Models stomped down the runway in adorable print dresses, blazers, short-shorts, and metallic skirts. Too cute for school!

HERVÉ LÉGER BY MAX AZRIA: Hervé Léger by Maz Azria amped up the iconic bandage dress for Fall with slick silver and gold hardware, giving the supersexy shifts a tough-girl edge.

RODARTE: Often, Rodarte’s threads only work if you’re in a magazine spread, walking the runway, or in a movie called Black Swan. But the design duo’s fall collection, full of long dresses, lace and linen blouses, and funky patterned shifts, is completely wearable. P.S. We also adore the side twist hairstyle the models wore.
