New York Fashion Week Last Looks: Yesterday’s Runways at Rosie Assoulin, Zero + Maria Cornejo, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Carolina Herrera
Debuting her first collection only a couple years back, industry newbie Rosie Assoulin has been carving out her niche and gaining steady momentum with her whimsically far-out designs.

Granted, she got her start under Oscar de la Renta and Alber Elbaz and, with an arsenal of eye-catching design tricks from those two, Assoulin’s ascent beyond emerging designer is hardly surprising. The American created a fall collection of well-balanced, crisply tailored suits, a sea of super-wide-leg trousers and matching jackets (whether it be an army green tiered crop or fuzzy cream trench). Single-shouldered, bell-sleeved wrap tops and layered, diamond-shaped velvet halters introduced the transition to more innovative silhouettes. Larger-than-life ruffles were the standout among the eveningwear pieces, tiered and paired with one-shoulder fisherman knits and cropped capes.
