Tonight, I attended the opening night of Nolcha Fashion Week Spring 2007, featuring designers Lei Marco Jennifer Nicole Lee Katya Leonovich Samata’s Muse. It is a daunting task to run essentially several different fashion shows in one, and Nolcha’s organizers did so, beautifully. The shows were held in a unique and lovely location: the Prince George Ballroom on 27th Street in Manhattan.
The first designer of the evening was Lei Marco, beginning the show with several models wearing gas masks, and these two oddly suited in skirts. Afterwards, most of the models sported a variety of evening gowns made of drape-y, sparkling fabric in black, and a few in brighter colors. The sparkly fabric even showed up in very body conscious bathing suits. There were also some nice, tailored suits for men.
