Fashion Week Preview Drawings

Have you seen these fashion week preview drawings from Forbes.com?

Click on pics for big view:





























































Digging the Nicholas K, but then I'm a sucker for anyone who names "post-apocalyptic dystopia" as inspiration. And one of my favorites from last season, Thuy, is collaborating with a milliner for a limited-edition hat collection. Then there's my regular favorite, Yigal Azrouel: soft shapes + metal hardware + leather = belted, red and black cobweb dress? Oh yeah.

But did you read the Abaete inspiration? Les Incroyables, a fashionable subculture of the 18th Century. Or, as this website calls it, "...roving bands of angry dandies." Now I'm really looking forward to Fashion Week.
