NEW YORK, N.Y. – Oversized bows, exaggerated puffed sleeves and luxe jewel tones. Everything sparkled with sequins at Badgley Mischka's show Saturday, which played up the glamour of “Downton Abbey," with the Beatles' bohemian Abbey Road era.
In an interview backstage, Mark Badgley said the label is designing for the woman who “still wants to take time and make herself feel special and indulge and buy a beautiful piece of clothing."
“She can wear them over and over again or let her daughters have them," he said.
Hilaria Baldwin brought her young daughter to the show. She sat in the front row next to husband Alec Baldwin. On his lap, he held their young daughter Carmen, who wore a black bow headband. The family said they were delighted to cheer on the fashion duo.
“These two men are such titans of the fashion world and it’s really — we’re happy to come and help celebrate them and what they’re doing,” Alec Baldwin told The Associated Press.
Rapper Jeezy, who wore a burgundy suit and sat next girlfriend and TV host Jeannie Mae, said he loves playing with fashion and reusing pieces in different ways.
“The whole experience ... just getting the vibe, love it. Fashion week is dope," he said.
The gowns had more minimal silhouettes but every piece had a special touch, an oversized bell sleeve, ruffled collar, giant bow or a plunging beaded neckline.
