Dazed Overdose: Tue 15th Sept: David St John James

From warrior women at Rodarte to cool Marc by Marc Jacobs, New York Fashion Week suggests that flats may be the new heels...

A killer show this morning from the Rodarte ladies. Moari warrior meets braveheart from the land of the long white cloud. The mightly fashion fighters charged the runway on volcanic sand. Explosive! To follow, a Mulberry presentation, Hairspray carnival on le manège enchanté. On to Halston, where a 70s aura lingers on and one can still imagine the late Farrah Fawcett with her signature flip fringe lounging at some Hollywood party. Am very curious how newly appointed Marios Schwab will bring this house into the future. Marc by Marc Jacobs was as cool as ever. Wild thing prints, Molly Ringwald bows and zipped up boots. Are flats the new heels? Fashion week can be a circus, and evident here at Temperleys presentation and film, where a giant Zoetrope projected ring leaders and acrobats under the big top. Though playful, it was also very bold and graphic. The finale to the days events was the extravaganza presented to us by Kimora Lee Simmons of Baby Phat. This show was held at the famous Roseland Ballroom around the corner from Times Square where the show was displayed for all of New York to see.
