SheFinds Was There: Style.com Celebrates Fashion Illustrations by Fashion Designers

April 2, 2008 by SheFindsJennifer
shefinds | Style

Last week, we at SheFinds took time out of our busy blog-reading-sales-hunting-taste-test-playing schedules to attend a little fashion insider event — a Style.com one at that. Most of the industry people were there to mingle and hobnob with the rest of Manhattan's most stylish society, but we went mainly for the free champagne (ahem… free Veuve Clicquot) and to people watch. Oh! aaand to see the book, of course.

Yes, the party was to celebrate the publication of Fashion Illustrations by Fashion Designers, a book of drawings and sketches done by the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Lacroix, compiled by one of Style.com's own, Laird Borrelli. I personally enjoyed the book very much — having graduated from design school myself — but at $45 a pop I kept my credit card tucked away (having collected many fashion illustrations for free in those Pantone books at Fashion Week). But in case I change my mind, I can always buy it on Amazon for almost half the price. 

As far as the people watching goes, it was the usual crowd: fashion editors, Milan from Project Runway (I seriously see that guy everywhere), a few 'it' models of the moment (Agyness Deyn breezed by us in all her bleached blonde glory). A few of the designers featured in the book were said to have attended (Peter Som, Behnaz Sarafpour), but they unfortunately slipped my attention. 

And what were these fabulous New Yorkers wearing? Black mostly — "It's just so easy and chic," my friend from Bazaar reminded me. Although, there was one odd soul sporting an oversized plastic raincoat with orange piping. Here are a few little trends we did spot:

1. Sculptural Shoes: The chunkier, the better.

2. Sequins & Metallics: Just a little somethin' shiny to stand out in a crowd.

3. Tribal Jewelry: Natural, earthy looking jewelry is so in.

4. Elongated Tuxedo Jackets: I saw girls wearing them with just leggings and riding boots… it looked hot.

5. Stirrup Tights: An odd little lovechild of leggings and tights.
