Chic Reads: It’s NYFW time!

Lakme Fashion Week is still a few weeks away, but New York Fashion Week Fall 2011 kicked off Friday, and we’re excited. After all, international fashions set trends in India too! Here’s our pick of some of the interesting reads from New York Fashion Week’s first day.

To start with, the fashion world is abuzz with a hot new womenswear model, Andrej Pejic, who is a man. No kidding. His bone structure closely resembles a woman’s, and he pouts like a Hollywood starlet. Andrej has already walked one show, and will most likely been seen on the NYFW ramp again. Watch out for him.

For those eager to stay ahead of the fashion curve, quickly catch up on a trend (Unexpected Layering) Slaves to Fashion recommends, hot off the NYFW catwalk.

And from the first day at NYFW, designers Christian Siriano and Peter Som set the fall mood with dark colour palettes, though the latter retained his favourite bright colours with fun shoes. Messy hair, I-don’t-care makeup—we like this look!
