Friendships Bubble Up At NY Fashion Week

But perhaps only to them. "It's really our own version of it," Laura Mulleavy said backstage.

The beachy feel came across most strongly in prints â¿¿ especially a tie-dye motif in silk satin, which appeared in a host of flowing gowns in pink, blue, red and black.

There were even some Grateful Dead references in the mix â¿¿ with the iconic Northern California band appearing via brilliant red-rose embroidery on the fanciest dresses, along with Swarovski crystals.

In the collection's most unusual element, many of the tie-dye gowns were embellished with large, futuristic-looking collars and other attached pieces made of what the sisters call 3-D double-faced foam.

VERA WANG

John Legend and fiance model Chrissy Teigen, Jada Pinkett Smith and Christine Baranski were on the front row to see ready-to-wear collection of Vera Wang.

Wang has embraced a high level of artistry for her bridal and red-carpet customers, but it was new for her ready to wear. "It was time for us to raise the bar," she said.

"It's going to be all about the collaging of different fabrics, different scales, different textures and different embroideries," she explained.

The first look out was a refined black wool sleeveless coat with an exaggerated arm and capelike collar that was paired with a racer-neckline shift dress. Wang folded fabric like origami to create wool-silk tops, and then topped them over the chest with a silk band.

For eveningwear, if anyone could start the trend for trousers on the red carpet, it's Wang. Her finale rose-printed gray jacquard chiffon blouse and delicate evening robe worn with gray rose-printed pants would be a strong contender.

VICTORIA, VICTORIA BECKHAM

Fresh off the positive feedback for her high-end label, Beckham offered "zip-and-go" dressing for her more affordable line.

More affordable â¿¿ but to a point, as Beckham herself acknowledged. "It's still expensive," she noted, "but a little less, and maybe something more women can buy."
