New York Fashion Week

With a warehouse venue and a set that featured speakers stacked high and a neon centrepiece, fashion editors walking into the Marc By Marc Jacobs New York fashion week show on Tuesday afternoon understandably thought they were in for a hedonistic clubbing collection. And those suspicions seemed well-founded when the soundtrack started with ear-bleeding drum'n'bass. But, as the collection was revealed, it became clear that British creative directors Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier aren't that easily second-guessed. In place at Marc Jacobs' second line since 2013, their sophomore catwalk outing showed their ideas are rich and various. Even the soundtrack reflected this – the dancefloor-worthy tunes were contrasted with snatches of Strauss.

Less poppy than the first collection – which included lots of print and Motorcross and manga references - this amped up the bona fide fashion namechecks. Distressed T-shirt dresses and jackets with harness details recalled Vivienne Westwood's early work, while slogan dresses reading "New World System" were a nice homage to Katherine Hamnett's famous slogan T-shirts while slip dresses in industrial brights showed the influence of Helmut Lang. A section of the show towards the end, where the frills of semi formal dresses were patched together with less special occasion fabrics like sweatshirting, recalled Japanese designers like Junya Watanabe, who pioneered such hybrids on the catwalk. They were also a knowing nod to Bartley's own work for her brand Luella – where she quickly established the short formal dresses as her trademark shape during the noughties. With these ones ripped up and destroyed, and made into something else entirely, they perhaps semaphored a new era.

Taken as a whole, the collection was a wonderfully confident cocktail of ideas – not so easily digestible as their debut, but maybe stronger for that. Backstage after the show, Bartley and Hillier – in matching white shirts – were quick to draw the connections of seemingly unconnected inspirations together, all as part of a particular mood. "It was hardcore idealism," said Bartley. "It's a feeling that you find in rave culture but it's anything that's a bit anti-establishment, with a do it yourself ethos. It's strong, bold and euphoric. "

There is an optimistic mood around this brand at the moment – it's been rejuvenated by the duo's appointment and feels relevant again, ripe for a new intake of customers after clothes that are cool but clever too. Responsible for 70% of the entire Marc Jacobs business, that can only be a good thing. For a second season, Jacobs himself was sat proudly front row and greeted his design duo with a warm hug as they came out for their bow. The music only helped things along. "It's been so much fun putting the set together," said Bartley. "We've been dancing to that for hours. " A Marc by Marc Jacobs rave might be on the cards yet.

The Latest Bridal Trend: Buying Your Gown Online

(NEW YORK) -- For traditional brides, "carrying something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue" has long been a way of inviting good fortune and prosperity into a marriage. But what if the borrowed something is the big white beach wedding dresses?

A host of new retail outlets are offering all of the glitz and glamour of a fairy tale wedding gown experience, but with a return-by date akin to Cinderella's famous midnight curfew.

Ladies and gentleman, you may now rent the wedding dresses.


The Latest Bridal Trend: Renting Your Gown


"When we recently launched Little White Dress rentals for brides, we received orders for events the next day," said Kelsey Doorey, whose new e-retail site Vow to Be Chic, launched with rentals for bridesmaids and then quickly expanded its offerings. "It's clear that women are looking for ways to make the experience more affordable and convenient without sacrificing style or dress quality."


Popular designers featured on the Vow to be Chic site include Jenny Yoo, Nicole Miller, Jill Jill Stuart, Tadashi Shoji, Watters, Theia, Joanna August, LulaKate, Alvina Valenta, Jim Hjelm and Swoon.

And it's not alone in its business model.

With an increasing number of women shifting away from preserving gowns for family heirlooms, many of today's brides are more interested in saving some money on the way from the boutique to the chapel.


Longstanding designer rental website Rent the Runway, which offers 4- and 8-day rentals of upscale gowns by designers ranging from Badgley Mischka to Monique Lhiullier, recently debuted a bridal category after its brick-and-mortar store in the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas saw a steady stream of women shopping for their wedding day.


"I think some women value the experience over the ownership of their gown," said a representative for Rent the Runway. "If they already use Spotify or Uber, services where you’re not necessarily owning something versus experiencing it, they will also feel comfortable with renting vintage wedding dresses."

Plus, the savings of renting are not insignificant.

A sleek, long-sleeved, cocktail-length lace wedding dresses by Dsquared that would normally retail for approximately $830 can be rented for $125 on Rent the Runway. And at Washington, D.C.-based bridal rental atelier Borrowing Magnolia, a Jenny Packham "Aspen Gown" featuring a draping silhouette, meticulous bead work and an illusion lace back that would typically sell for $5,000 before alterations, can be rented for $1,250.

Those discounts leave lots of funds still in the wedding budget for food, music or other desirable decor elements. And if your groom isn't planning to keep his morning jacket, proponents say there's no reason why his betrothed can't follow suit with her tulle.

"Guys have been renting tuxes forever," Doorey told ABC News. "It finally dawned on me: Why can't women enjoy the same concept?"
