Sevigny second collaboration with Opening Ceremony is a men's wear collection scaled down enough to fit girls. This collaboration resulted in a androgynous, indie/preppy collection. The line consists of moleskin pants, wool bombers, long johns, oversize leopard and tiger knits. Sevigny explains "I have a lot of girlfriends who like to wear oversized stuff, and my male friends and gay boyfriends would complain that they couldn't wear anything from my collection," she said. "Their only option was to carry a floral or leopard-print tote. Now they have more options." Innovation at its best! photocred: style.com

Kelly Bergin's New York debut consisted of high waisted mini skirts, dresses, and floral tops! The designs were beautiful and classic-not to mention full of pockets!"Women love pockets!" Simple and (what Micheal Korz once refered to as the most over used word in fashion, and I must agree)chic, but hey, whats not to love?
If you havent noticed, I have this obsession with cool hair pieces, espically with a vintage feel. Buddug is just that!!! The London based designer gets her inpiration"[from] nature and scenery of my home background" From tea cup necklaces, to birds kissing on a headband. You must checkout her website!!

Scott Fontana, is the owner and stylist of Badass Hair. He completely rocked out the models' hair for the Walter Fashion Show adding that final edge to the rock and roll looks. Sunday, February 15th 2009, Scott and his team styled the girls with using the Badass Hair Products. The look was a teased and tousled with a velvet wrap around ribbon accented with feathered hair piece. “I wanted the hair to reflect the clothes and the whole edgy attitude that makes the Walter collection so cool. The updo was messy while still being chic, lots of teasing, but still really feminine,” says Fontana. "To create the style, Fontana used Badass Hair products including “Up All Night” to create volume, “Free” (a working hair spray) to tease the hair, “Lock Up” hair spray to hold the hair in place, and “Light It Up” hair shine to give the style a gorgeous sheen!" photocred: photographer Tone, model Ubah Hasson

Yesterday, Alison Lewis debuted the second season of her solo(tear) line, LEWIS. The space upstairs at Bebo in West Village, was small and therefore packed. On display were her vintage-inspired pieces, this time with a 1920's vibe. The girls were styled to perfection, but of course who better model the collection than the designer herself? Even though I miss the old Mooka Kinney duet, sperated these girls are as talented as ever. Each collectin they make gets better and better. Can't wait to see what comes next! photocred: Refinery29
