Banana Republic Fall/Holiday 2012

DesignAbinta Malik, SVP, Gap OnlineComment

This week, I ventured to New York’s vibrant Chelsea neighborhood for Banana Republic's Fall Holiday 2012 presentation.  

From the minute I arrived, I was in awe of the fabulousness that was before me!

The crisp, white, contemporary feel of the IAC HQ - an architectural phenomenon designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry – provided the perfect stylish work backdrop for the latest in Banana Republic fashion – a city-meets-country collection of polished separates that work from day-to-night (Banana’s signature) with pops of autumn-esque color. Gorgeous!

Guests were greeted with beverages that we sipped as we “ood” and “awed” over the more than 30 looks described by as “exactly what you're going to want to wear come september.” Personally, I couldn’t agree more!

And as if the evening could not get any better…No fashion preview could be complete without a delectable send-off – macaroons (my favorite!) from world famous French eatery – Ladurée.

Que magnifique!
