One of my favorite things about ADAM is that everything I saw on the runway today will be made and sold. Most designers use the catwalk as their playground creating high fashion looks to showcase their creativity, which are later used as inspiration for the next season. Adam Lippes prides himself on creating collections that the everyday woman can actually wear. I attended the show in the American Express Skybox with my friend Sydne Summer of ThinkThruFashion and had a meet and greet with the designer afterwards. "I'm inspired by the High Line in the Meat Packing District," Lippes commented. "I love watching how people who walk around the runway in the sky dress and wanted to make clothes for them"
I love how he calls the High Line a runway in the sky. After all, the sidewalk is our catwalk. Right? Silk dresses in ivory, lavender and neon pink were followed by black and white polka dot dresses and military inspired embroidered jackets.
"There's nothing more refined than when a woman is comfortable in a dress she can afford," Lippe stated.
Watching the show from the skybox today and looking down onto the runway watching the crowd snap pictures and look at the clothing in awe as models walked by them made me take a step back for a minute and realize how lucky I am to be a fashion insider. Everyday I'm reminded in one way or another and at this moment, I really appreciated the fashion and beauty industry and my job. Normally, I watch the shows from inside the tents and looking down at those people, it's such an honor.
