NYC Fashion Week Spring 2008 – Doo ri

Doo ri was the next and final stop for me on Friday in Chelsea. I was suppose to see Proenza Schouler that night but it fell through. Yes, I was a little upset about that.

I spent some time looking for my seat with no help from the staff. They would wave in the general direction of seat and walk away. I shouldn’t be the one to kick people out of my own seat, that should be your job. But if you want to get anything done it’s best to do it yourself. I wasn’t in a good vantage point for pictures, I couldn’t even see the shoes. After Thakoon it was hard to impress me. There were a few pieces I really like, but I wasn’t feeling the colour palette and some of the cuts (what’s with the mid-drift stuff, haven’t we moved beyond that). I did love this Bone cotton trend coat

It was funny to see that even the top girls fuck up. The first model out the door turned at the wrong moment and forgot half the audience. That was 2 shows in a row, a couple of the women at Thakoon forgot the layout too.

It was the first time I saw Masha Tyelna up close. She’s a new model that has the hugest blue eyes you will ever see.

Since my pictures are horrible, I’ve tracked down a video for you all. There is one thing I’ve learned in New York. Pictures suck and don’t make any judgments until you’ve seen the video or been there in person.
