NEW YORK — Individual, handmade and quirky don’t sound like recipes for big sales, but retailers believe that’s exactly what will inspire their customers come spring if the New York runways are any indication.
Designers made statements with unusual pairings of materials — leather and crochet at Proenza Schouler, leather laser-cut to look like lace at Jason Wu and reembroidered lace at Vera Wang. Elsewhere, there were dresses that combined silk, chiffon and satin or mixed prints and patterns. Retailers insisted consumers will splurge on such distinctive looks.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
