Designers went street-chic cool with everything from slouchy layers to prints and trimmings.

Imitation of Christ: Complete with skulking models and a bone-covered runway, Tara Subkoff delivered a Gothic-meets-glitter lineup at Imitation of Christ. The surprise? It was completely wearable. She mixed street-chic basics — skinny black jeans, slouchy leather trenches, slashed tuxedo shirts — with beaded one-offs reworked from vintage fabrics and materials, resulting in looks that were equally edgy and relaxed.

Tart: Keeping the jersey trend alive, Tart’s Sherry Wood turned out a nice series of sexy halter numbers and Empire dresses in bold graphic prints.

Ed Hardy by Christian Audigier: The fist-pumping, cat-calling Janice Dickinson in the front row was about as surprising as Christian Audigier’s latest collection, which was full of more of the same: logo Ts, trucker hats and crystal-trimmed tracksuits and jeans.

Joseph Domingo: The smattering of retro-feeling coats and body-conscious cocktail dresses didn’t make up for Joseph Domingo’s overall prom-gone-wrong look.
