Hi. It's Allison McNamara and in today's Fab Flash, Jenni Kayne took me through her entire Fall 2012 Presentation and gave me some great styling tips. So we just saw your amazing presentation, tell me about the inspiration behind it. The collection was inspired by the English countryside and link the notion of the perfect gentleman's hunting wardrobe. So, like classic tailoring and herringbone and classic men's wear fabrics but done in like a cool new way. Definitely. You always have like a button ups and kind of preppy pieces. What was new for you this season? And we did just like digitized, blown up Prince of Wales, which I think is really amazing and showing with the shirt and skirt together as an outfit. Definitely. And then it was just like amazing graphic floral which we showed as it looks too. How would you style these? I saw them together, but how else would you wear them. I mean, you could wear them so many different ways. Like, I love now like, a long skirt tied back to a net. But there's something super chic about doing this for evening instead of a dress. I love that. Tell me about the color story here. So, lthat's a dress near the same belt that she used from last season. Done in new colors. So like the first delivery is navy, Kelly green, yellow, orange, rust. Second delivery is tops in chartreuse and like a great heather grey. And the third delivery is all about evening, which is black and white, which is like what I think girls wanna wear when they go out at night. I love that. Why'd you go for an all black and white story? I just felt like it needed to cleanse the palette. All this color over here. Yeah, exactly. What are your favorite pieces from this? My favorite pieces are this. Love that. Which I love. Beautiful. I love all the prints that I showed you. I love all, like, the feathered minis and the little Mongolian fur. So cute. So when did you first fall in love with fashion? I can't even remember. I mean, forever. I just have been in business ten years now. I've just been saying. Crazy. Yeah. What's your favorite things to design? I mean, I like it all. I think coats, probably, because I'm like a coat girl. Coats and shoes. What are you doing first thing now that this is over? I'm going to run around a little with my baby because we leave to go back to LA tomorrow. Okay. So go to a couple of stores that I never have time to go to in LA. Make sure to check out the entire Jenny King presentation and come back here for more coverage from New York Fashion Week. I'm Allison McNamara and I'll see you next time on Fab Flash on Fab Sugar TV.
