Here we go, today we start our coverage of the New York Fashion Week for the Fall Winter 2012 season. Everyday I’ll post pictures and coverage of the main shows and, even better, main backstage. I would like to start with BCBG MaxAzria, that showed his collection yesterday here in New York at the Lincoln Centre. And here is a little trivia too, Time.com interviewed designers Max Azria and his wife Lubov just before the show – an extract of the conversation.
Can you tell me a little bit about the inspiration behind your collection? It’s inspired by Bauhaus of the 1930s, by its modernism and constructivism and color. We have a range of colors, from neutrals to beautiful reds and burgundys to blues to pops of yellows, fading into black and white at the end. It’s a really beautiful ombre.
Do you have a favorite piece from the collection? It’s like choosing a favorite child! You know, I think I always like look number one, because it kind of makes a statement. But there are so many beautiful color-blocked pieces down the runway. I usually like jumpsuits. There’s one in a black and a blue that’s beautiful with sleeves.
And here are our backstage pictures
