Julian Louie Fall 2009

I was going to do a comprehensive "this-is-what-really-tripped-my-trigger-at-NYFW" post but I think I'll skip it. It's so easy to get overly excited about the big name designers during Fashion Week, but it's the new guys who often prove most interesting. I had never heard of Julian Louie before this week, but he's definitely a designer I plan to start following. His second collection has a futuristic vibe with a little 40's and 50's feminine flair mixed in. There's so much to love here.

Oh I love that last puffy skirt in red, so adorable! This is a great collection, and I think I skipped right over it! For shame...
