BRINGING UP BABY

NY FASHION FEATURE: Karen Walker. Designer Karen Walker, from New Zealand, featured her work at New York Fashion week for Fall 2007. Her designs, a mix-match of 1930's styles echoes Katherine Hepburn to me. The pastiche of military elements juxtaposed with elaborate patterns makes her designs reflect a palette and layering that project the tensions between traditional masculine cuts and feminine refashionings in the modern age.
