For Fall 2013, Thom Browne could have capitalized on his new widespread fame as the man who dressed First Lady Michelle Obama for the inauguration, but he stayed on his own wild, theatrical path that he has always been known for in the smaller fashion community. Conjuring images of Alice in Wonderland and fantastical fairy tales, Browne sent out sharp, exaggerated shoulder jackets with full skirts, all over tights adorned with 3D roses (models also carried rose bouquets in hand). While not exactly ready for stepping straight off the runway and onto Pennsylvania Avenue, the clothes demand your full attention — and interpretation.
