NYFW: Ruffian Fall 2012 Takes New York to English Country Side

It wasn't till the Fall 2011 Collection when I fell in love with designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais of Ruffian. I remember sitting at my office desk and watching the live stream of the Ruffian show and being amazed by the tailoring and their take of their menswear inspired woman's wear. Tuxedo pieces filled the collection-- that's when I knew I somehow needed to get an invite to their show. Spring 2012 didn't happen but when I got the invite for the Fall 2012 show I couldn't believe my eyes...I basically had a mini heart attack. My poor boyfriend had no idea what the hell was happening or why I was spazzing out. His understanding of fashion is minimal....

It was an early morning on the 3rd day...9 am show (which should be made illegal) but there was no chance in hell I was missing it. No snow or early morning call was going to keep me away. I rolled my butt out of bed and trek in the wet snow to Lincoln Center. There is nothing like the tents in the early morning-- quiet and calm. Like always the show didn't begin till 9:30am but once the first look went down the runway we knew we weren't in New York anymore -- more like the English country side. Long wool duster coats, wide brim hats, high collar shirts, and knee length skirts ruled this runway. Along with tweed and plaid print. My favorite looks were the high collar shirts, the black velvet body hugging long sleeve dress, and the dashing red duster coat with leather trim
