While I have attended Los Angeles Fashion Week on several occasions, I have yet been able to make it to New York Fashion Week -- a place where I am told the fun REALLY starts. And every time I miss it, I pretty much bum out on this one major thing: missing out on Gwen's L.A.M.B. show at Bryant Park. I adore many other designers that showed, including Charlotte Ronson, Custo Barcelona, Tracey Reese, Betsey Johnson, Vera Wang, Nanette Lepore, and Isaac Mizrahi; however, L.AM.B. is, in my book, like no other. Her consistent combination of edgy, hipster street style meets whimsical boho-yet-classic couture was what made this ready-to-wear collection memorable for me. The rasta factor didn't make it on catwalk this season, but I am fine with that. Too much of a good thing can actually kill it.
So this blog post is basically an homage to Gwen, showing off some of her best designs from this past Spring 2011 show. (For now, I can at least enjoy clear images on style.com.)
