This year designer Michelle Smith celebrates the 10th anniversary of her young-luxury collection Milly. The theme for Spring 2012 is “a lesson in geometry.”

SundayArts knows she’s a devoted advocate of the saving the Garment District, making the most of the city’s manufacturing resources and building her business here in the city. She’s designer Nanette Lepore. She first got her start in the East Village on a shoestring budget, and she’s now a worldwide force in the industry.

Design maven and industry leader Norma Kamali is a New Yorker who knows who how to put the fun in fashion.

Designer Yeohlee Teng is a longtime SundayArts favorite. She’s an architect of fashion, carefully constructing her pieces as functional works of art that have been engineered for today’s “urban nomads.”

Chilean-born, New York City-based designer Maria Cornejo is known for her sophisticated yet accessible designs. In 2006 she was awarded the prestigious Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Fashion Design, and her minimalist constructions are beloved by the likes of Tilda Swinton, Cindy Sherman and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Young desinger Jen Kao moves from her Fall 2011 ethereal glam to a blend of American style with world cultures in her colorful Spring 2012 looks.

In this edition of SundayArts: a preview of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, including a profile of Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey, a conversation with designer Cynthia Rowley, a survey of the Garment District and the initiative “Making Midtown,” a behind-the-scenes look at the “BOFFO Building Fashion” competition, and a look at fashion in the museums around town.

The non-profit cultural organization known as “BOFFO” explores the intersection of fashion and architecture through its project “BOFFO Building Fashion.” SundayArts' Christina Ha takes a look at this partnership of design.

Cynthia Rowley’s collections are distinct for their vibrant creativity. She’s a Fashion Week vet who knows how to keep things fresh for her fans and herself. In this profile, Christina Ha visits Cynthia Rowley’s retail space and showroom on Bleecker Street for a conversation with the downtown Fashion Week favorite.

As Fashion Week comes and goes, Christina Ha takes us to museum exhibitions all over the city that will keep the art of style in fashion through the fall.
