1. Oscar de la Renta was really pretty. Perfect dresses, and even crop tops, to wear to summer weddings. Yes, crop tops.
2. Hood By Air is really confusing. I mean, who really wants to wear a dentist's smock with "Wench" written on it? And why did those shoes face two ways?
4.Fashion can be good, old-fashioned fun. Jeremy Scott paid tribute to the sleazy New York nightclub scene of the '80s. There was neon, wet-look leather, a dress held together by what looked like Paula Abdul's hoop earrings, and an amusing print of a dancing girl's legs in red stilettos.
5. Until things get political...
Prabal Gurung's collection was inspired by feminist icon Gloria Steinem. His hashtag? #femininitywithabite
6. Then even more political...
Opening Ceremony called their show Pageant and the People, and designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (who also design Kenzo) claimed they were inspired by the presidential election and "the American immigrant experience", and aimed to subvert conventional beauty norms.
7. This diversity thing is here to stay (yay)
J. Crew eschewed regular runway models in favour of customers, fans and employees. The "real people" who wore the clothes at their presentation included J. Crew staff, an "amateur tennis player" called Esme, and a bartender, because we all need a drink by now, right?
