Harper's Bazaar editor Mary Alice Stephenson gushed "It was the most important show of the season, by far." The woman sitting next to me in the audience remarked "It feels bigger than Marc Jacobs." Alexander Wang, who has already quickly been building in cult status with his edgy downtown vibe created the ideal confluence of artsy and elegant at his Saturday afternoon show at New York Fashion Week. With Kanye West and Alicia Keys (who was seated next to Anna Wintour), Wang created a sensation with satin streamer dresses (think party streamers in couture form) with bands of fabric flowing freely down on the bias. Every detail, from fuzzy sunglasses to leather ponchos paired with quilted leather spats felt new. As fellow designers looked back for inspiration, Wang's eye seems trained on the future.
