Quality control in NY Fashion Week?

My first reaction after looking at the latest runway pictures is "so commercial". Let's face it, a fashion show is not a trade show, and when you make the fashion show that commercial, there will be a problem. I was excited for the new designers before the show, but I feel bad for them now: it seems to me that lots of their ideas are not fully expressed. I can even feel the designers compromising to the market as I did in my architecture design (I could no longer take it so I finally quit. I was not good at it). I was expecting creativity and some fresh ideas, but I didn't even see any "must have" pieces from the shows so far.

I also saw some walmart looking pieces shown on runway...is it necessary? Why don't those brands just save the money and print some nice catalogues instead? I would rather see less designers in the Fashion Week with more creative ideas.

With that being said, there are still some lovely shows that made my day, and the following pictures will show you some of the nice pieces and disappointment.
Pictures are from http://www.elle.com/ and www.style.com

Thumbs up:
Brian Reyes. Clean and beautiful.

Doo Ri. She made my day. The collection is consistant and beautiful. Great details.

Diane Von Furstenberg. Beautiful and wearable clothes. Apparently she is giving her wrap dress a new look.

Nicole Miller. I love how she used blue and gold colors. She might be a little late on the bubble skirt trend, but girls will love to wear these:

Thumbs down:
Tuleh. A very inconsistent show.

Project Alabama. Is it worth the couture price? I appreciate the handwork, but you should at least get the fit right and make them look well designed before thinking about hand work. We need designers, not craftsmen in Fashion Week.

Imitation Of Christ. Don't they look like something we can find in Walmart? Scarlett Johanson didn't save the show.
