Notes from the Runway: New York Fashion Week, February 2007
Innovation was the order of the day as designer Angel Chang presented her Fall 2007 collection at New York's Fashion Week. True to her trademark style, Chang infused her collection with futuristic wonder and more-than-meets-the-eye effects, such as technical fabrics that change color as body temperatures rise. Texture and soft tailoring prevailed, as evidenced by a floral print tunic with a handkerchief hem. A lush velvet banded collar jacket equipped with iPod controls was a subtle standout, echoing the theme of innovation.
