New York Fashion Week kicked off on Friday with glam and elegance setting the tone. Here are some highlights from day one and two:

BCBG Max Azria

Considering how depressing the present is, Max Azria had the right idea by focusing his fall collection on the future. Literally, the idea emerged through gold, metallic leggings paired with dresses that featured geometric shapes and precise cuts or fluid draping. Overall, it was more chic city girl than Judy Jetson.

Jason Wu
Sighs were heard as each one of Wu’s breathtaking looks floated down the runway. It started with lady-like separates in mix-matched prints (patterned chiffon blouses with plaid tweed jackets), then transitioning to the real works of art: Elegant, ethereal and fantastical dresses. It was all fit for — forget the first family, more like royalty.

Vena Cava
Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai kicked up the wow factor from last season’s understated glamour, adding texture and embellishments to their trademark lean silhouettes. Their elegantly edgy motorcycle jackets, asymmetrical blazers, and a silver foil cardigan were pitch-perfect, while the pieces featuring metallic fringe seemed to be a creative miss.

Elise Overland
Rock ’n’ roll glam clothes set the tone for the party-like atmosphere at Overland’s presentation. The shiny metallic and sequined asymmetrical jackets, trousers, mini skirts and dresses all had a certain “What recession? I’m going clubbing!” air to it. Some favorite moments, though, were the more understated ones such as a loose printed pant paired with a dry seaweed cotton jacket.
