Yesterday, I interviewed NYC fashion maven & dandy Patrick McDonald for the next issue of the magazine (He writes for Mao Mag, Nylon, a Rude, and a host of other hip mags).
His take on the fall collections: lots of opulence, luxe fabrics, embellisment, but nothing really too mindblowing. That pretty much jives with my impression of the NY shows as a whole.
He was also really feelin' Chado Ralph Rucci, and as rising stars, As Four.
Look for the piece about him in the new issue, up on Thursday, 3/24.
