Dazed Overdose: Sat 12th Sept: David St John James

From tennis playing at Lacoste to films for Tim Hamilton, the opening of New York Fashion Week braves the gloomy weather.

My first day of NY fashion week began with the grunting sound of Tennis players at Lacoste a reminder of the US Open in another part of town. Very Lartigue glamour and Tender is the Night. Yet it was a very bright start to the day in spite of the dreary Londonesque weather outside. Being so close to the tents at Bryant Park a visit was paid afterward to the exhibition of Richard Avedon at The International Center of Photography on 43rd St. Super charged fashion to really get you in the mood. Afterwards a back to back stream of fashion ensued, taking in Richard Chai Woman and Man, Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, a Band of Outsiders presentation. The Latter, a beautiful film made by outstanding Photographer Collier Schorr. It was for designer Tim Hamilton. A lovely evening on top of a tall building in Tribeca, with a beautiful view of NY and fresh air. At least enough to take a deep breath and look forward to the future.
