The Big Tent: Anna Sui Fall 10

NYFW is a colossal event & this fact is even more evident when you’re able to experience a show at Bryant Park in THE BIG TENT. Bryant Park is made up of 3 tents that vary in size i.e. the salon, promenade &  THE BIG TENT– obviously humongous. My first introduction to THE BIG TENT, was last year when I attended the Ports 1961 show for She Breathes. Imagine a massive space with a sea of people all there with a common goal to see a fashion show in real-time. This year I tagged along with a few new friends and gained unexpected entry to the Anna Sui show in THE BIG TENT! I can’t explain the feeling that overcomes you  when you walk over the threshold into what seems equivalent to an NBA game at MSG(okay I’m exaggeratinga bit, but its HUGE :)). This post is my ode to Bryant Park, now that NYFW shows will be held at Lincoln Center I wonder if they will be able to recreate THE BIG TENT experience. Anna Sui delivered a collection that felt like deja vu, then I remembered why the sense of familiarity was so strong. It was an upgraded version of the capsule collection she did for target with lush furs, textured leather & sparkly sequins amongst the usual mash-up of bohemian prints. Here are a few of my favs taken from the standing room section which in my opinion is sometimes better than sitting unless your in the first or second row :). I’m glad that I was able to be a part of  New York Fashion Week history!
