Belle N. Matisse: Alexandria Norman’s debut collection featured monochromatic leathers and cozy knits for basics with an architectural slant.
Bryan Hearns: Intricately embroidered wool peplums were the theme for the designer.
Curly V: The designer showed Pop Art-inspired herringbone pieces for the same adventurous customer who might also wear clothes by Curly’s former boss, Jeremy Scott.
Elaine Marie: The designer mixed vintage and street-style references in her high-waisted plaid trousers, suitable for Gwen Stefani or those channeling her look.
Gypsy Junkies: Marcus Paglialonga was inspired by classic rock, and his collection was well suited to younger women channeling a Seventies boho-band vibe.
Ina Soltani: The designer’s cocktail and eveningwear is not for the shy.
Laili Lau: The designer looked to forest trees, a motif that was reflected in earth tones and textured knits.
L’Une: Anh Volcek took minimal shapes and added her own out-there plastic accessories to underscore her equally out-there themes of surgery and healing the body.
Mike Vensel: Black jersey is a constant for the designer, who tried short dresses this season instead of his usual long drapy gowns.
Mila Hermanovski: The designer was again influenced by art movements, this time Fifties Op Art and California conceptualism.
Nami: Sarah Nami Anh’s embroidered lace and silk dresses were feminine and flowy, but the collection could have benefited from a tighter edit.
Nuvula: Sisters Rebecca and Vanessa Victoria’s ample use of pink and blue brocade and black-and-white checkerboard prints gave their collection a costumey slant.
Octavio Carlin: Keeping his focus on the special occasion arena (he also designs a bridal line), the former Disney costume designer delivered some solid eveningwear looks.
Paul Redmond: The looks in bright red paired with bold prints made a cheerful statement nonetheless.
S&G: Sequoia Emmanuelle and Gita Salem design for rock stars and those who aspire to dress like them.
Skingraft: Jonny Cota said his fall collection was inspired by “hooded storytellers, from Buddhist monks to hip-hop artists.”
Stop Staring: Alicia Estrada turned to the golden age of Mexican cinema and stars such as Dolores del Rio and Lupe Vélez for inspiration.
Sue Wong: The designer’s special-occasion gowns were inspired by the colors and shapes of autumn foliage and sunsets, and also channeled her usual references of Gothic and Victorian embellishments.
Thai Nguyen: The designer was inspired by the hustle and flow of modern-day Ho Chi Minh City and traditional Vietnamese Ao Dai garments.
