C.O.U.P.: Interesting knits with a variety of sleeve lengths; too-basic pants and skirts.



David Rodriguez: More to it than in past seasons, with rich tweeds in tailored jackets and coats; a great cashmere and silk sheath and the black coat over a polkadot silk dress.

Donald Deal: Showed a nice cashmere bustier with a short embroidered skirt and a handful of simple, easy velvet and chiffon dresses in navy and black.



Epperson: It was filled with raw edges, layering and some intricate manipulation of fabric, including a black sleeveless matte jersey dress with strips of felted wool, but sometimes the haphazard layering looked dowdy.



Keanan Duffty: Clever presentation via a short film starring 10-inch Barbie-like models wearing reworked and embellished Levi’s denim, military clothing and vintage Dior shirts.



Liz Collins: Punk rock à la cute dresses trimmed with crystals and paillettes and the camel pullover with lips puckering at its elbows.



Oliver Christian Herold: Terrific presentation with the best looks for day: well-cut suits and coats and funky chic sportswear.



Pamella Roland: Ron Leal and Pamella DeVos’ jet-setting clientele will appreciate the beautifully cut pantsuits, the pretty black dresses and a chocolate brown satin gown with an embellished back, but not the cheesy gold lamé-, sequin- and marabou-trimmed numbers.



Paula Hian: Cute Mod looks, including a white minidress.



Pesavento Couture: It’s only fair to say that a few gowns were quite pretty, such as the black georgette, cap-sleeved column or a charmeuse and lace gown with a beaded yoke, but there should be a law about designers randomly sticking the term "couture" after their names.



Rachel Comey: Sophisticated fare via printed, drop-waisted satin dresses with butterfly sleeves and gaucho-effect split panels or masculine pinstriped pants worn with a fitted blazer and military blouse.



Tracy8Kinney: Chic streetwear — trenches and pants with creatively placed buttons and stark-colored fabric overlays — turned into mismatched pieces like striped thermal pants and satin dresses.
