NEW YORK, September 10, 2009

Naming the works of sculptor Richard Serra as her compass for Spring, CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist Wayne Lee focused on minimalism and draping. Ruched goddess minidresses with graphic cutouts and a major emphasis on the leg showcased her aptitude for working a single piece of fabric around the body—to sexy, insouciant effect—while more practical, everyday items like a paneled leather vest worn over a sheer, asymmetric silk charmeuse top would be appreciated by any woman with an eye for one-off basics (that is, by almost any savvy consumer these days). Lee debuted a line of sculptural rings and leather bags—keep an eye out for her must-have hobo and oversize metallic duffel—but her clothes were styled without fuss, and they did just fine on their own.
