Socialite and CIRCA creative director Fabiola Beracasa is filing regular reports on her Fashion Week experiences. We present her diary of Monday's Fab life.
9 a.m. I was on an important phone call at work and watching the clock tick-tocking towards 10 a.m. I realized I was going to miss the Carolina Herrera show! Boo-hoo for Fab.
4 p.m. I ran over to Thakoon (wearing my adorable Thakoon outfit), and just loved the show. Something I've seen a lot of this season is the navy and black combo I have loved for years. Also, I have spotted a good deal of short pants, really short skirts, and loooooong gloves. After all the shows, I like to dig through my closet over the weekend and pick out the pieces I think I'd like to reincorporate into my life.
5 p.m. I went to the Marchesa presentation with Derek Blasberg, and it was just to die for! I was speechless. The collection was so solid and really glamorous. I ran into André Leon Talley, and the first thing he said was, "I hope you're ordering, darling, because this is their breakthrough collection." Then he pointed to a black-and-white dress with a voluminous calf-length tulle skirt and said to his photographer, "Take a picture of that, and make sure you get the shoe … it just screams Oscars!" I asked Georgina and Keren what their inspiration was, and they said Marlene Dietrich and old Hollywood glamour.
5:40 p.m. Off to Adam Eve because I think Coco Brandolini is so talented and she helps Adam with the collection, so I was curious to see it. It was very wearable. The men's clothes are surprisingly nice, and not too metro for those boys that don't like to look too fashion-y. I saw a lot of things that I liked for myself as well. Did you know Coco is going to Italy to design for Alberta Ferretti?
6 p.m. Max Azria show: Also a very strong collection, with really wonderful music. As I had already been given a sneak peek at the collection by Lubov, I knew what to expect, but the clothes really do come to life on the models … it truly looked great!
7 p.m. I had the kind of headache that requires a horse tranquilizer … really! So I went to rest for a bit, then decided to go to the Marc Jacobs and Marchesa after-parties.
9 p.m. Three aspirins later, I put on a black vintage party dress, red-hot lips, and go, go, go! I headed to Marchesa first, since it's closer to Gramercy Park, and when I arrived, there it was so much fun that I never left. I chatted to my friends Sophie Dahl and Danny Baker and also ran into Alexis Bryan, who I always enjoy talking to because she has a great sense of humor. The rest of the time I spoke to Jason Pomeranc while we waited for his girlfriend Ali Wise to show up. Georgina and Keren were in their glory, and Harvey was having a great time too!
12:30 a.m. Finally, home!
