New York Fashion Week Re-Cap - Manuel de la Cruz "Revelations"

The lights grew dim, and the fashionable onlookers waited in excitement for the show to begin. Then, like a thoroughbred at the gate, she charged down the runway to Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song". She was exotic and beautiful, with heavily-lined eyes and bedecked in expensive-looking rocker style pants paired with a small jacket and a tee. She also wore a resplendent headpiece resembing Lady Liberty's crown- and she definitely had my attention.


The models were representations of some ancient race similar to a Fayum portrait. The men, full-lipped with almondine eyes were guardians and keepers of some antiquated secret like a Templar Knight. And the women were Bollywood princesses who exchanged their elaborate saris for Harley-Davidsons.


The show also featured accessories for newly-adorned areas. The jaded crowds in the Front Row always want to see something new, and this show was definitely refreshing.


Elongated jeweled cuffs for the forearm and rhinestone encasements for the perimeter of the ear were prominent.
