Erin Wasson’s show at ABC Carpet felt like some warm Bedouin squat-in with editors and singer/sometimes actor Jared Leto (who claimed to be friends with model turned designer Wasson), atop piles of oriental rugs as models pranced down the showroom. Her Texan parents beamed at girls in white leggings, ivory knits and fat crocheted jackets that would pair perfectly with skinny Hudson jeans, I might add. Mamma Wasson shot photos and wiped tears from her eyes as Brooklyn band Yeasayer performed.
While in the dead of winter here in New York, with snow dampening the excitement of Fashion Week, Yeasayer injected some sunny vibes around ABC’s showroom in Union Square. It almost felt like reggae. I wanted to get up and hit the tambourine, but then I saw the champagne-stocked bar in the corner post show, where we all headed for a little bubbly and chitchat.
