“On behalf of Fashion Group International, I am delighted to announce FGI COMMUNIQUÉ will return for this upcoming season! Since 1936, FGI has been an essential resource for industry information at the zeitgeist of innovation.” — Maryanne Grisz, President & CEO, Fashion Group International
New York Fashion Week ended with an explosion of sequins and shine, expressing a desire for fun and glamour with a dash of look-at-me confidence. Tom Ford, master of seductive splendor, showed his signature lamé blazers atop glimmering separates like silver-trimmed bras, bejeweled mesh tees, embroidered Western shirts and silver-plated gym shorts. Michael Kors continued his love affair with classic American glam, offering sleek power-dressing blazers paired with slinky sequin-covered sarongs. Sally LaPointe, an FGI Rising Star Winner, showed her elegant evening-ready pieces in jellybean colors this season; an aquamarine tailored satin coat over marabou-trimmed chiffon pants borrowed from both boardroom and boudoir. All three designers captured the freedom and complexities of being a woman in the 21st century.
