Adorkable! Lauren Moffatt’s Models Went to School: MB Fashion Week Fall 2012
Lauren Moffatt held her fall fashion 2012 presentation in an elementary school – the perfect location for pleats, Peter Pan collars and mixed prints..
During New York fashion week, whether it’s for fall or spring, shows and presentations can take place anywhere and everywhere, including warehouses and basements. Lauren Moffatt chose the Old School in Little Italy. The school turned event space can host anything from DJ parties to art events and more. This time, they showed fashion.
Lauren Moffatt’s known for her feminine designs that playfully mix texture and styles. If you had to use a celeb to compare her clothes, I’d say Zooey Deschanel. It’s adorkable. One classroom was set up like a science room, complete with the periodic table on the blackboard. Models sat at desks, taking turns to go up to the front of the room. The other was an art room with models standing by easels.
Pleats! Peter pan collars! Mixed prints! Slim cut pants, ’60s geometric prints and anklets with heels. Lauren made full skirts and minis, so no matter what your figure is, you can wear stuff. Some items read like a cross between London’s Carnaby Street and the Brady Bunch: in a good way.
See what I mean? Adorkable!
