Elie Tahari, whose Fall 2011 collection was styled by Joe Zee, gives us an inside look at the process of casting models and putting looks together.
Yesterday we showed the Fall 2011 Collection at New York Fashion Week. With the adrenaline rush subsiding, we are spending the morning thinking of all the moments that lead up to the big show. Last weekend was spent putting the final looks together with Joe Zee, our show stylist. Models flowed in and out of the showroom for casting, dressed in typical model-off-duty ensembles of slouchy tanks, skinny jeans, and motorcycle boots. Models were fitted in the Fall 2011 pieces upon arrival, fur over lace over leather- luxurious and romantic with a definitive dark edge.
