Showing for the first time in New York, Italian-born, British-based designer Allegra Hicks slimmed down caftans into a perfectly chic look for spring. Her fan club and circle of friends included Tiffany Dubin, Sally Albemarle, and Aerin Lauder. Looking to points East was the Custo Barcelona collection, which showed explosive colors and prints with a Japanese flavor. Carlos Miele split his collection between lots of denim — especially low-rise jeans — and frilly chiffon dresses.
For their 17th anniversary, Girls Rule! selected a lineup of labels that were as varied as teenagers themselves. One highlight was Miss Sixty’s younger sister KillaH that hit the mark for spring with urban athleticwear. And as for Jordache, let’s just hypothesize that Britney would have loved it — flashy, sassy and a little bit trashy.
