Here and there the 1960s creeped into NYFW. Inspired by the era, Chloë Sevigny staged a protest-styled fashion show at St. Mark's Church.
Opening Ceremony's Carol Lim says, "With Chloe, it’s always a story, and she wanted to focus on youth and restlessness. It kind of started when she went to visit Occupy [Wall Street] and she got really inspired. You know, the ’60s were obviously a big time when protests were happening and she really wanted to tap into that energy."
