StudyNY @ NYFW ’11

“The pieces in this collection seem to be inspired by the style of clochards. An upscale, classy clochard, however, that plays with a patchwork of different masculine fabrics coming from the coats, jackets and shirts of who knows who. Pants and overcoats are obviously oversized and worn with cardigans and tops of tricot wool and irregular shapes. Or they become dresses to wrap around the body. Even the shoes have an already-used air…” Vogue Italia NYFW review
Congratulations Tara! Here are a few highlights from her spectacular NYFW presentation at The Standard.

“CPALI silk project strives to capitalize on the ephemeral creations of high fashion to generate the funds and attention that can preserve nature by benefiting people at the base of the pyramid. Thanks to lots of hard work by farmers and sewers in Madagascar, and help from our new friends in the fashion industry, a piece of wild silk textile made in Maroantsetra appeared in the Meat-packing district in a runway display during the New York, 2011 Fall Fashion Week… Tara used two meters of CPALI’s patent-pending, nonwoven textile to make a strikingly beautiful, ethereal skirt that was modeled by Kelly in the Fall 2011 presentation by Study New York” — CPALI
