California label Wildfox Couture is a Young Hollywood wardrobe staple— stars like Vanessa Hudgens consider it their off-duty uniform— so when designer Kimberley Gordon decides to stage a runway show in downtown NYC, her famous fans follow. Proving that even (really cute, really comfy) t-shirts can still warrant a spot in Fashion Week, last night’s The Great Gatsby– inspired presentation showcased Wildfox’s comfy tops as well sequins, Americana shorts, and tops splashed with trademark Gatsby phrases like “It was just a dream,” and “Daisy.” While the models worked the goods (including a new collab with Michelle Siwy!) on the runway, attendees like Vanessa, Victoria Justice, and Ashlee Simpson rocked the collection off the catwalk. And all of this happened BEFORE New York band Chairlift ended the night with their Valentine’s Day single, “I Belong In Your Arms.”
Vanessa wore a White Label sequin dress and Ashlee sported the Cat Face tee, both from the Fall collection. Although you might have to wait a few month to nab these items for yourself, good news for those who want some instant gratification— you CAN score Victoria’s sequin sweater for Spring ’13. One thing’s for sure: considering Wildfox’s rep for amazing lookbooks, we can’t WAIT to see this one get The Great Gatsby treatment.
