New York Fashion week pressed on this weekend, with shows from some of the industry’s greatest. The weekend started with some newcomers and followed up with some well-known names, but who caught our eye?

Friday began with the show for the Project Runway Finale. Judges Michael Kors, Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia lined the runway along with guest judge Faith Hill. Highlighting the remaining ten contestants, the show saw everything from sparkling silver gowns to structured hounds tooth pants suits. In the end, the winner won’t be revealed for several weeks, due to the show’s airing schedule.

Runway alum Christian Siriano also revealed his collection Friday to a delighted audience. Though his line proved to be quite dark, he made up for it in shimmering fabrics and a wine coloured silk on many of the pieces. Mostly mini dresses and professional wear, Siriano wowed us with several of his breathtaking evening gowns.

Diane Von Furstenberg stole the spotlight on Sunday, doing what she does best. While she is known for her luscious fabrics and eye-catching patterns, we were no less shocked at the amount happening on the runway. The collection was busy to say the least, and the rippled runway surface just added to the madness. Regardless, we find ourselves eager and willing to wear any of her fun and flirty jacket dress combos.

Finishing up the weekend was Zac Posen, who showed on Monday morning. His collection was very warm, featuring not only spicy colours but a few cosy coats as well. While we loved the clothes, we weren’t sure about the models’ make up. A powerful look, their dark, smudged eyeliner looked a little like a mix between racoon eyes and my eyes after a few minutes of heavy sobbing. Where were you trying to go with this, Zac?

Crying eyes aside, we are looking forward to all of today’s shows, including Badgley Mischka and Vera Wang.
