For the In-crowd in NY
“It’s rare to see people walk out of a fashion show, but that is indeed what happened at Rebecca Taylor — but only because the Salon tent in Bryant Park [at New York Fashion Week] was so overcrowded that even those standing couldn’t see a thing,” describes The Village Voice’s Araceli Cruz. “We’re pretty sure the reason so many came out in droves to witness Taylor’s Fall 2010 Collection was the stunning line she presented last season that was filled with flowery short skirts and a ton of playful color. New Zealand-born Taylor did not disappoint. She beautifully blended autumn tones with animal prints, bold stripes, and subtle touches of blue flowers atop black dresses and skirts. The designer obviously got the attention of young Hollywood, as several starlets, including Sophia Bush, Michelle Trachtenberg and Kristen Bell, adorned the front row. Taylor attended St Catherine’s College in Wellington. One of her first jobs was making clothes for Peter Jackson’s Meet the Feebles’ puppet characters.
