DESIGNER: Rachel ComeyINSPIRATION: The cool indie-spirited girl that Comey always designs for.TOP LOOKS: A high-waisted white cotton skirt with matching vest and diaphanous blouse with bandeau top; breezy bow blouses with short shorts; a cropped tank top with a button front high-waisted black skirt; bustier top dresses that were flowy and asymmetrical at the bottom; lots of mixed printsACCESSORIES: The designer's own selection of sandals in the form of lace-up flats and wedges, platform booties, and thick heeled open toe shoesWHO WAS THERE: Plaid-meister Steven Alan, Cathy Horyn from The New York TimesWHAT WE THOUGHT: It's always nice to watch a show where a designer knows their target customer and hits the bulls eye. As the parade of very wearable pieces went down the runway - breezy white dresses and tops, silk plaid blouses and shorts, sweet halter dresses, and even a darling Chloe-esque summer suit - you could envision the girl who buys Rachel Comey's clothes. She seems, to this reviewer anyway, to embody a Zooey Deschanel-like charm and quirkiness. And she would probably scoop up everything that Comey showed. Brought to you by our friends from Stylelist!
