Araks: In a collection made for flirty tomboys, Araks Yeramyan Andrews presented boyish silhouettes that contrasted playful transparent skirts and blouses with more conservative pieces.
Mara Hoffman: Starting with hip knits and finishing with their signature fluid dresses, Mara Hoffman and Klee Van Schoonhoven's collection featured headdresses and knits loosely inspired by Arabia, and urban pieces with a military bent.
Alexandre Herchcovitch: The mushroom-shaped fur shrugs were ridiculous, but the sculptural and kimono dresses showed that Alexandre Herchovitch's experimental take on proportion, texture and color can be wearable.
James Coviello: Holding on to that vintage feeling, James Coviello's beautifully textured collection featured layered prints with colorful knits and tweeds accessorized with his freshly revived hat line.
Development by Erica Davies: Erica Davies could have succumbed all too easily to her inspiration — Marlene Dietrich in "Gold Earrings" — with a bevy of bohemian flourishes, but fortunately, she kept the references to a little silk fringe here, a little ikat there, instead delivering street-smart, edgy basics.
Lyell: In her first runway show, Ecco Domani winner Emma Fletcher sent forth a series of wispy blouses and lovely slim dresses that seemed right for both high tea and an evening on the town.
Sari Gueron: Sari Gueron's ruffled, tiered dresses worked best when she infused them with bright colors.
Sue Stemp: Sue Stemp threw a party at the tony Norwood club and she dressed her girls accordingly — in a parade of saucy jewel-toned or floral-printed dresses.
Steinunn: Taking a page from artist Hildur Bjarnadóttir, Steinunn Sigurd successfully explored the evolution of doodles, with, for example, a graphic print on gossamer chiffon.
Thuy: There were some interesting architectural jackets and origami details in Thuy Diep's collection, but the clothes did not warrant the hour-plus wait.
