Fashion Week NYC -- Soojin Lee

by Tracy Kaler

Last night I had my first Fashion Week experience since moving to New York City. It wasn't a Mercedes Benz Fashion Week event, (with any luck I'll be there next year), but it was a runway show premiering the 2013 collection of London-based designer Soojin Lee for iFashion Week. Korean-born Soojin is known for mixing patterns and combining ornaments, jewels, lace and embroidery. The designer worked with Alexander McQueen shortly before his death.

It was a packed house just East of Times Square at the Atrium, and the leggy collection consisted mainly of bright fitted dresses, (many of them tunics), and a few two-piece skirt outfits and coats. Lengths varied, and all were finished off with fire engine red platform peep-toe pumps. No pants paraded this catwalk.

Here are some highlights of the collection. I'm out of luck because all pieces are available in US sizes 2 or 4, which in model sizing really means a -0 or 0. 

Thanks to Scott McCulley for escorting me.

these pieces are so fun and colorful! I've never been to a fashion show, gotta admit I'm a bit jealous

This was my first one and I loved it. Can't wait to go to another. Hopefully the next one will be at Lincoln Center!
