“All of the pieces were so full of life, light and elegant. I really love the maxi dresses.” [catherine88]

“Pleasantly surprised at this collection! Usually it’s graphic and streamlined but this was a nice direction!” [krncandi]

“One word can describe this collection – ethereal.” [zhangziyi]

Gary Graham

“I’ve fallen in love with rough feminist style. A girly dress paired up with tough outerwear is [a] brilliant idea. The contrast though makes the whole presentation really intriguing.” [elle_gb]

“I always love his collections, his style is right down my alley and I seriously wish I could find some European store that sells his clothes – as I’ve had no luck so far. His mix of pure femininity and rougher, more street-wear oriented pieces is great.” [mistress_f]

“I feel like he really puts Rag & Bone/Alexander Wang‘s namesake line/all those labels who push the urban-tomboy vision to shame here. So beautifully constructed, and cool.” [HeatherAnne]

Jason Wu

“This feels very Halston to me, that is what comes in my mind when I look at the collection. But I mean that in a good way, he made it modern, covetable, and most of all easy.” [Miss Dalloway]

“He is the one designer that opens New York Fashion Week and the fashion month for me! Always great, impeccable and sleek collections, nothing bold or groundbreaking, it’s New York not Paris, but always consistent collections with a great sense of flair and finesse!” [miguelalmeida]

“I love it, he hasn’t had a great collection for a few seasons now but he is back. I completely love that dress shape with the v neck and leg showing, it is soo beautiful.” [gossiping]
