NYC FASHION WEEK
Yes, it's true. Or it's at least what we heard leaving the Packham show. The designer wasn't even there, but you could definitely feel as if she were in the room. From beautifully crafted gowns to amazing cocktail attire, Jenny Packham’s Fall 2011 collection was effortlessly transcendent. Reminiscent of the original “Single Ladies” of New York (the ladies and cast of Sex and the City), her garments were both sexy and alluring with a certain “goddess” quality to them.
Is the social norm about to change? It seems as though the days of the blazer and black slacks have vanished and the new style is men in baggy shirts and ruffled pants. Ladies, you won't have to look far to find the right thing for your man to wear for a night on the town. Just look in his underwear drawer! Grab the old shirt he lays around to watch the game in and the oversized pair of pants his grandmother bought him for his birthday five years ago. Stick a skull cap on top of his head and a pair of trinket store sunglasses on his face and you have the perfect designer outfit. Having anxiety yet? Duckie Brown says it's ok, and more than that, pajamas with checkerboard colors are the new black!
