Couture’s New York state of mind

It was style on stage at the Woolley Mammoth theater Tuesday evening, as the philanthropically popular Couture for a Cure fashion event took over the theater’s Kogod Lobby, putting on a show featuring DKNY‘s street chic youthful collection to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Honorees warmed up the runway, followed by models from local agency THE Artist Agency, sporting youthful looks from DKNY’s 2010 “City in Bloom” collection.  Sometimes whimsical, sometimes grafitti-esque florals dominated on dresses, pants and oversized tees, while boyfriend jackets and pegged pants made a comeback for city-style ease and efficiency.

Showing the more secret “stuff” was also *apparently* in style.  There was one unexpected runway ruse that audiences are still ruminating over: smoothies (otherwise known as biker shorts) peeking out from skirts and shorts.

Exposed shapewear and sophisticated city style helped this event shape up to be a fashion fete that raised mega funds for the cause.
