diane von furstenberg showed that’s she’s about much more than the wrap dress. her collection featured short 60s style shifts, pop art trapeze tops, off the shoulder tunics, print minis, and even some denim. and instead of going with the spring-y pastels that other designers have been sticking to so far, she went pucci-bright, with yellow, fushia, black, and red mixed in with pop art prints, oversized houndstooth, and bold geometric patterns.

philip lim’s 3.1 show was a study in white, cream and navy, and he introduced menswear this time around. he mixed shift dresses and strapless dresses embroidered with rosettes and silk ruffle shirts and slim pants with sophisticated suiting, lace bubble skirts, micropleated chiffon and military style jackets.

rachel roy showed her first runway presentation for a select group of editors and buyers. she mixed pleated and pintucked chiffons with menswear fabrics like crisp cotton and tropical weight wool. some standout looks included a white flat sequin flyaway tank with silk shantung knee length slim capris; a grey short shift with a boatneck, full pleated sleeves, and a belted back; gold beaded scalloped edge shift; and a pale yellow silk jersey draped dress.

jovovich-hawk‘s milla jovovich and carmen hawk had a small presentation in milla’s townhouse, and it continued their theme of vintage style pieces. looks included long ruffled hem silk floral print gowns, mixed polka dot halters, slouchy denim trousers with loose wrap tops, ruched print dresses, and white eyelet long dresses.
