Designer Oscar de la Renta and fashion editor Andre Leon Talley discuss the exhibit "Joaquín Sorolla and the Glory of Spanish Dress" at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute, which analyzes the history of Spain’s regional clothing styles through the paintings of Valencian artist Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida.

While the lingering heat of summer blanketed the city on Monday, inside the Theater at Damrosch Park, the coolness of spring was most assuredly in the air at Carolina Herrera.

August is a hectic month for designers as they work on their new Spring collection, and every moment counts for sourcing materials and making changes. Ms. Rowley was in the throes of working on Spring when we taped her interview, so we were thrilled she made time for SundayArts.

We first caught up with FENTON/FALLON designer Dana Lorenz at last year’s Accessories Bazaar, Harper’s Bazaar’s showcase for accessories designers. The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist is best known for her bold statement jewelry and unusual mixture of materials.

At 25, Wes Gordon is an easy target for adjectives like “fashion world darling” and wunderkind. In this Q&A, SundayArts speaks to Gordon about his new collection, his emphasis on tailoring, and women's wardrobe essentials.

Last night we previewed the amazing “BOFFO Building Fashion” series. Now at 50 Walker St., you can catch the first collaboration, as man-for-all seasons Nicola Formichetti gets his own temporary concept shop “Nicola’s.”

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.

Complimentary champagne and refreshments fuel shoppers as they make their way through the maze of contests, discounts and giveaways. Celebs, designers and stylists make appearances amid book signings, sales of limited-edition items and hair and makeup consultations to a soundtrack of DJs and live music performances. It's Fashion's Night Out!

"Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" closed last week after a wildly popular run at the Met. If you couldn't stand the snaking lines, or just want to see it again, watch this SundayArts Curator's Choice featuring Andrew Bolton, curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, discussing the exhibition of the late designer’s extraordinary garments.

Andrew Bolton, curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, discusses Savage Beauty, the current exhibition of the late designer Alexander McQueen's extraordinary garments on display through August 7, 2011.
