The atmosphere was very casual during the Elie Tahari presentation, which made for an oasis in the middle of the usual runway show madness. The models were chatting and having a good time and Champagne was being passing around, giving the room a feel almost like a party, where all the women just happened to be wearing very cohesive and color coordinated outfits. A clever way to do a presentation, because it shows how the clothes would look in “real” life use, as opposed to literally standing on a pedestal. For Fall 2012 Elie Tahari played with layering and tone-on-tone looks in navy, purple, red, fuchsia and teal and green. A chic, but down-to-earth collection; nothing fantasy about it.
