So, Proenza Schouler has been my favourite Pre-fall 2011 collection so far. Zero + Maria Cornejo pre-fall 2011 collection is also among my favourites. I think it’s all about the print for me right now.
Zero + Maria Cornejo always has fashion forward cuts that don’t forget wearability and comfort.
You can find Zero + Maria Cornejo at Holt Renfrew and Jonathan + Olivia.
Washington Post Style Editor Robin Givhan, leads a conversation with past National Design Award Winners Francisco Costa (Women’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein Collection), Yeohlee Teng, and Maria Cornejo about their work and the role of fashion in contemporary culture.

I’m sure every hardcore fashion fan has watched this video already but I just got around to it and thought I would share.
It’s 5AM Friday morning at YYZ. I haven’t slept yet. I decided to go out Thursday night to The Social. I got my butt home at 2:30AM and finished packing in time to leave at 4:30AM for the airport. I’m not sure how I’m going to make it through the day, I have 4 shows planned. I try to sleep on the flight but my neighbour keeps elbowing me. He’s fidgeting like a bastard and my urge to kill is rising; thank god it’s only an hour flight.
Arriving at La Guardia is interesting, it’s a busy airport. Not as clean as YYZ, but this is New York after all. There is enough time to check into the hotel and get some breakfast. The first show is Zero Maria Cornejo. It’s held in a small warehouse in the Meatpacking district. I have a front row seat for my first ever NYC fashion week show, I’m pretty excited.
The Zero collection features a lot of easy to wear pieces that bucked the trends and featured bright colours. Everything was very much in the loose fitting, cocoon style.
I really loved this Geometric jersey Square Poncho Dress. The pattern distorts your vision when looked upon and that gave the effect that the person is distorting space and time as they walk by.
