Mercedes Fashion Week Continued

BCBG chose blousy dresses, billowing over the body without shape or form combined with knit looking caps

Yeohlee, in contrast, similarly chose drab colors but her models were buttoned-up head to toe, looking prim and proper in geometric shaped lapels on warm-looking coats and sweeping capes.

Marc Bouwer's styles varied from deep necked dresses that open upward and outward almost like parting butterfly wings to puffy skirted spaghetti strapped numbers reminiscent of my prom dress.

Akiko Ogawa presented a mixture of fashion, mixing metallics and studded belts with a fur lined caped hood or a tartan wrapped about the body to some '20s inspired numbers with low waists to pleated mini skirts mixed with a heart shaped neckline covered with a jacket.

Nicole Miller played with a latin flair combining hats with vibrant prints in browns, tans, maroons and whites under a belted grey jacket to a simple white shirt with tiered sleeves under a belted up knee-length bell-shaped shirt in a muted green and black.

Lacoste got funky with stripes, stripes everywhere and thin matching belts over denim jeans. They mixed a patterned shirt with a differently patterned vest, topped it off with a beret and a black belt.

Alice Roi went crazy with big checkerboard patterns, browns and blacks in abstract fashion, a bit of frill, dull browns and greens...don't want to say anymore about that...

These are just a few of the many designers that flocked to the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York yesterday and today. And the show continues...
