Yes, fashion week is still happening. The blisters on my feet are fresh, the bags under my eyes are darker than ever but hey, I’m still moving. Yesterday was fun because in the midst of all this Fall madness, I got to have a little Spring moment…and no, I’m not talking about the SS13 crowd print dress I got at the Proenza store yesterday (I could’t help myself).
This was my first time attending the Diesel Black Gold show at fashion week, and it just so happened to be Sophia Kokosalaki’s last collection for the brand (Andreas Melbostad will take over next season). Sitting in the industrial space of Pier 57 with a half pipe at the beginning of the runway, I knew the collection would have some skater influence but I wasn’t expecting actual skateboarders to show off some tricks before the models walked the runway.
