Saturday was mercifully light on shows (for The Fashion Informer, anyway), but we managed to see some great stuff, from the newly-sexy suiting at Rodarte (who knew?) to a grand look back at Ralph Lauren's 40-year career as a designer. In between, we were treated to a NY Philharmonic string quartet at NOIR - where naughty, tits-out transparency was the order of the day - and an "is this art or fashion?" guerilla performance happening in a Chelsea gallery space next to the Rodarte venue, which had the fashion flock gathered on the street, rapt, as a half-naked young woman writhed on the pavement and belted out Aretha Franklin hits while tugging dramatically at her chemise (don't quit your day job, dear).
Here's a little of what we saw, with more to be found at http://www.splendora.com/members/fashion_informer/blog and http://www.vogue.co.uk/shows/.
