Numberlab and The Red Dress Collection

By: Shane Terenzi
Fashion Week was kicked off yesterday here in NYC with two fabulous shows: Numberlab and The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection. Numberlab started with a hockey scrimmage outside The Standard Hotel and then continued inside on the 3rd floor. There was a total of twenty-two looks and each one was better than the next. From perfectly tailored blazers, to electric green jeans, Numberlab truly designed for the well dressed, hip young men of today. Later in the evening was the Red Dress Collection at Lincoln Center – the first show at the tents. Each year the top designers create a red dress and they pair it with a celebrity. This year such celebrities were spotted on the runway including Dita Von Teese (wearing Zac Posen), Taraji P. Henson (Naeem Khan), “Today Show” host Ann Curry, singer Natasha Bedinfield, singer Eve, professional dancer Julianna Hough, and reality star Audrina Patridge – to name a few. Each gown was gorgeous, fit the star to a “T” and more importantly raised awareness of women’s heart disease. A great way to start a crazy week of shows
