Fashion Week: Libertine

Who says fashion week has lost its fun? Libertine designer, Johnson Hartig, has proved the naysayers wrong. His collection was bright and full of color even though the designs were almost all black and white. Almost every piece was playful and driven by youth culture. A full skirt and t-shirts were printed with the phrase “Tax the rich more" and coats and mini dresses were patterned with x’s and o’s. Even the shoes were spirited and were a black and white print that extended from the tights.

Standout trend: In a season that almost every designer is showing bright or florescent colors Johnson's collection was almost strictly black and white.

How to get the look: At the end of a party filled night, take all the pins out of your hair and shake it out really well. Then rub your eyes a bit to get your eye liner to give the effect of a smoky eye at 1am.

Who makes it work: The party girl who isn't worried about what others are saying. She does the talking and makes the rules.
