“These dresses are so fabulous because they
are iconic, and brides need to be iconic on their
wedding day,” the designer said. Pieces in the

interchangeable belt options, and a silk
minidress with a sculpted floral bodice. Mizrahi is

apparel, Mizrahi isn’t worried: “The best place to

What's trending at New York Fashion Week?
“Style is what one creates….glamour is a state of mind.”
Rachel Zoe is one of the most influential forces in fashion today.
Raised in Short Hills, New Jersey, she was exposed at a very
young age to the worlds of contemporary art and fashion by her
parents. With her mother’s influence and access to countless
designer treasures, she developed a very strong passion for
vintage and all things glamour. After completing her degree at
George Washington University where she studied psychology and
sociology, Rachel moved to New York City to take on the fashion
capitol of the world. She started her career as a fashion assistant
at a New York based fashion magazine and was promoted to
senior fashion editor within two years. Seeking to diversify her
experience, she began to work directly with top pop stars and
actresses to create their images and continued to work as a
contributing editor to numerous fashion magazines.
Mr. Kors began his career in fashion at the age of 19 designing
and merchandising a collection for the renowned boutique Lothar’s
in New York City. The success of these clothes caught the
attention of the fashion press, prompting Kors to strike out on his
own. In 1981 the Michael Kors label was formed; since his
collection was established, it has never strayed from Kors’ initial
vision of chic, luxurious American sportswear.
Celebrities who have worn Mr. Kors’ clothes include Angelina Jolie,
Cameron Diaz, Uma Thurman, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Kate
Winslet, Sandra Bullock, Madonna, Barbara Streisand, Kate
Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively, Angelica Huston, Jennifer
Hudson & Debra Messing. In March of 2009, First Lady Michelle
Obama chose a Michael Kors gown for her first official portrait;
Mrs. Obama continues to wear Michael Kors on a regular basis.
The Louis Vuitton collection marked the final day of Paris Fashion
Week. And this season, instead of trains or merry-go-rounds or
other feats of people-moving mechanics, Marc Jacobs ferried his
models two-by-two onto the runway via escalator, as though they
were creatures ascending Noah's Ark (or an annoying couple at
the mall who can't bear to part hands while moving between
floors). This was no normal escalator, of course — its steps were
decorated with yellow and white vertical stripes, which created a
bright moving backdrop for the checkerboard runway.
Each girl was loosely coordinated with her pair partner both would
wear different variations of a yellow and white checkered pattern,
for example, or a brown and white print that at first glance
resembled cow hide but then turned out to be a graphic floral
prints. There were clear connections between the bright, mod
graphics and what Jacobs showed in his eponymous collection a
few weeks ago. We also saw lots more model abdomen peeking
out between low-slung skirts and boxy tops that hit at the waist.
