|New York Fashion Week 2010|
Usually when I browse the fashion shots from a show, I like maybe 10% of what I see or at least I can visualize it on me or someone like me on the street. Just when I think I am liking a designer like Vera Wang, Nicole Miller or Hilfigger, they come out with a totally quixotic creation, which makes me wonder just what they were doing when they got their inspiration. I know that lately the news has been talking about certain politicians being "out-of-touch" with the American population, but I think fashion designers can be every bit as much removed from the general rank and file and even more so!
But I found a very hopeful designer couple, Sachin + Babi, who has used restraint in their recent collections and who are very popular with younger women, average age 25. I also like that these are ready-to-wear fashions and can be bought off the rack. I thought I'd post a few of their outfits just to make a note of it. I hope that New York will be seeing a lot more of them in the coming years. Sachin + Babi Ankasa are married and they made their debut in 2007 and staged their first runway show this last February. I look at their 2010 collection and can see their influence now in 2012! (Here's hoping they stay married for awhile!)
You can purchase Sachin + Babi Clothing at
