Thakoon Resort 2010

Thakoon Resort 2010

This collection reminds me of the wonderful vision that was the Spring 2008 collection. I think the fact I saw this show in person in New York had something to do with my feelings for it. Regardless of my bias, this collection brings about those same feelings I had that fall in New York.

NYC Fashion Week Spring 2008 – Thakoon

Before and after the Zero show I had time to kill. So I browsed the shops of the Meatpacking district. Scoop, Puma Black Store, Stella McCartney, Jeferry, Ed Hardy, La Perla and Alexander McQueen. I was salivating in the McQueen store, some of the gowns for sale were just beautiful.

Thakoon was next show. It was in a large warehouse space, two rows of benches lined the runway which snaked it way around the room. I saw Anna Wintour. It was a brief glimpse of the woman and the only time I saw her all weekend. There were some other celebs in the audience, but I didn’t know who they were. A lot of the top models walked the show, Stam, Irina (both K and L), Hye Park. It’s amazing how thin these women are, it’s astonishing. Top models do screw up time to time and a couple models forgot the layout of the runway and bypassed a whole section of buyers and other guests.

The clothes were absolutely stunning. I loved everything and the last 3 dresses were complete knockouts. My pictures are online for viewing.
