Marc Jacobs brought the drama to end NYFW.
New York Fashion Week is over. I survived, but it was pretty underwhelming, save for a handful of my favorite designers from this season who weren't afraid to take risks. Newcomers Christopher John Rogers, with voluminous silhouettes, and Tomo Koizumi, with brightly colored puffball prom dresses, borrowed heavily from the ’80s. Last night Marc Jacobs continued the ’80s love affair with sweeping printed capes, glittering frocks with larger-than-life sleeves, a billowing caped yellow gown, and one spectacular dotted dress made of shredded tulle. Suffice to say: They brought all of the drama.
More has always been more with Jacobs. Even the production at his show was theatrical. A single spotlight illuminated each model as she walked and then when they reached the end of the runway, the light abruptly shut off, bathing the room in darkness.
When Christy Turlington Burns hit the runway in a black feathered dress and matching hat, returning from a 25-year hiatus, cheers erupted from the crowd. It was the perfect ending to NYFW: drama, imagination, an homage to the past, and a hopeful nod toward the future. — Jessica Andrews, Fashion Features Editor
BAMF: The point keeps getting missed by these "scientists" and "experts". The segments of wall are intended to funnel/divert illegal crossers to specific areas where the border patrol can focus their efforts. Say the 2,000 mile border has ten 20 mile long gaps. Each gap conveniently has a detention facility and a border patrol field office nearby. Agents at each of those stations can focus 95% of their patrolling to those gaps, and only venture along the barrier when the seismic sensors pick up tunneling activity. The sensors by the way that the democrats like to pretend are the best things ever, are no good by themselves. The best they can do is tell an agent who might be 100 miles away that something large enough to maybe be a person walked by at such-and-such a time, now go find him. If the sensors are accompanied by a wall on the other hand, it will warn agents that a tunnel is being dug which gives agents more time to prepare to respond because digging a tunnel takes time.
