Thirteen years after the 9/11 attacks, New York Fashion Week made history Wednesday by presenting a catwalk show at the World Trade Center with a stunning collection for Jason Wu at Hugo Boss, AFP reports.
After the romantic elegance of Michael Kors in the morning and much-talked-about group effort by pop diva Miley Cyrus and bad-boy designer Jeremy Scott, Wu unveiled his second collection for Hugo Boss womenswear.
The show unfolded on the 54th floor of World Trade Center tower No. 4, just meters from a memorial honoring fallen firefighters and one day before New York pays tribute to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror hijackings. The spectacular views of New York bay reflected perfectly the refined precision of the clothes in soft yellow, turquoise, lavender, white and black.
The 49 silhouettes combined clear, sharp lines with fabrics of body and structure; subtle geometric patterns in gray, black or white; ultra precise cuts and belted dresses; and sleek lace and embroidery. Inspired by a men's locker room, the classic white shirt was reinvented for evening, worn with a long suede skirt in soft yellow and a satin belt.
