Thom Browne has never been more visible than while riding into his Fall 2013 show, having dressed First Lady Michelle Obama in a tailored dress and jacket for the recent inauguration. But those expecting to see more wearable day options from the designer were in for a big surprise at today's dramatic presentation in NYC. Proportions were expanded into theatrical dimensions with wide, structured shoulder-framing jackets over full, embellished skirts. His menswear background was evident in the checks, tweeds, and plaids that popped up, while his rose-strewn tights were completely feminine. Has he introduced a whole new audience to the design sensibility he's known for? Definitely. Has he made a commercial collection for women to buy occasion dressing from? No, but that's exactly why he is so loved by fashion insiders.
