Fashion Week Diaries: Abaete Offers Corsets, Bike Shorts, And Nigel Barker

As a writer who has been to Fashion Week twice for SheFinds, I must report that we are moving up in the world (except maybe at Tracy Reese). From a polite double-checking of my invitation to a very civil and smooth entry to the show, this is the way these things are supposed to go! Even though most of us were on our feet for over an hour, everyone was civil and I would dare say in a good mood.

The presentation was textbook: glossy white runway, stomping glamazon models, pumping soundtrack, and Nigel Barker in the front row (either he’s cloned or he really does go to almost every show).  Abaete's was an ambitious collection, showing a mixture of hand-stitching corseting as a graphic underwear-as-outerwear presentation and an early 90’s homage to bike shorts  – yes, you read that correctly. There were some very pretty dresses in the mix, however, and the two most wearable pieces in my opinion are shown above.

A lot of the editors at the show were mixing very pretty white dresses with very aggressive black booties, like this Boulee Keira Ruffle Sleeved Dress in White ($415) and these Steve Madden Grinnd Black Studded Ankle Booties ($199).

It’s back to the tents with me tonight as I might get a chance to cover backstage. Wish me (and my aching feet) luck and stay tuned for more Fashion Week coverage.
