New York fashion week got a taste of Paris style showmanship with last night’s Gareth Pugh Lexus Design Disrupted show. The combination fashion show, art installation, modern dance performance was eons away from NYFW’s typical runway showings and the change of pace was appreciated by the well-heeled crowd. Dance company Random Dance performed an energetic series of choreographed tributes to chaos that crackled with energy as large scale videos looped in the background. The effect resulted in full scale immersion into Pugh’s pagan and powerful spring/summer vision. Everyone from modeling stars like Amber Valletta and Coco Rocha to actress turned designer Sarah Jessica Parker stood in awe of the dramatic visuals and their larger than life presentation. All in all Design Disrupted made an instant impact – event that can make the fashion crowd express excitement, interest and even surprise and is sure to go down as one of the week’s best.
