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.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye
For spring 2018, designers applied bold colors and cartoonish motifs on everything from sneakers and belts to key chains. See all the top men’s accessories trends on WWD.com. #wwdtrends (📷: George Chinsee; Prop Styling by @rnasti; Market Editor: @luiscampuzano)
The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
Beauty influencer @kandeejohnson makes her foray into hair care with a collaboration with @ogx_beauty — making it the first time that OGX has teamed up for a product creation. The collab includes shampoos and conditioners in three scents. At 39 and a mom, Johnson is a different profile than the emerging social media stars, but is considered one of the pioneers of the digital beauty influencer world.
