Narciso Rodriguez

Narciso has outdone himself again this season, my favorite collection of the week. The sharp cuts, proportion lengths, sunburnt colors in the beginning of the show! Phenomenal. He’s really one of few who can execute minimalism, while still able to keep it exciting and generating new ways to do it!” [TheoG]

“Probably the most consistent designer of NYFW. He’s seriously outdone himself season after season. I enjoy how simple his clothes look but he understands cuts and proportions very well.” [TaylorBinque]

“Impeccable.” [nataliaapple]

Proenza Schouler

Wow. They have to be one of the only brands in NY that consistently produces something high quality, innovative and beautiful! I love it! All of the ties are so cool.” [gossiping]

“Fantastic, as always. Must be the freshest take on Latin/Spanish inspiration in a long time. Love how they made it flirtatious with the ruffles and off-shoulder dresses, and boyish with the suits with the long bow ties. The whole collection had such a rich flow and desirability. NYFW truly begins and ends with these guys.” [Marc10]

“I prefer the end of the collection more than the first looks but I really love it. I’m glad they went back to a more subtle and refined glamour approach instead of the artsy/experimental thing they’ve been doing in the past few seasons.” [Wolkfolk]

Marc Jacobs

“Absolutely fabulous, as always, Marc! Truly inspirational! Just so many ideas, so many incredible pieces, so much personality, so much joy! This is what I love about fashion. He may not be creating anything so cutting edge, but what Marc does is done with so much conviction and fullness and depth that it is so energizing! He is so important for this industry! He helps keeps it alive and keeps it hot-blooded! I love it.” [dior_couture1245]

“THAT WAS A VERY DECADENT SHOW! Best show of NYFW, one of his best shows ever! The clothes are just fabulous! I LOVE E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.! Even the ugly looks were fabulous! BRAVO MARC!!!!!!!!!” [Lola701]

“I’m not sure if I can fully be unbiased about these clothes – and let me just say that it was very hit-and-miss; the more literal he got, the more he lost me – because this was one of the best fashion shows I’ve had the pleasure of watching. A lovely end to NYFW.” [StoneSkipper]
