Three Brands Share The Stage. And It Works.


Sixty-nine models. Three hair and makeup teams. Two camera crews, one kid, one dog, and one doting mother taking pictures for the family album. Suffice it to say, it was a touch crowded backstage at the group show at the Tents on Sunday. In one of New York fashion week’s most intriguing coups de théâtre, People’s Revolution owner Kelly Cutrone had corralled three brands—Nicholas K, Sergio Davila, and Mara Hoffman— into one time slot on the Tents’ Promenade runway. But anyone expecting total mayhem before the show was in for a surprise. “Every once in a while we have to tell a model to scoot back over to his or her section,” explained Nicholas K designer Nicole Kunz. “You know, they run into friends and wander over. But other than that it’s been OK.” Later, at a friends-and-family post-show brunch at the Royalton, Kunz admitted to some initial hesitation about sharing the limelight in her first New York fashion week outing. “I did worry that being one of three would diminish the impact of the collection,” Kunz said. “But on the other hand, I really felt like this was my season. I’m proud of these clothes. And I’m glad,” she added, as her mother strolled by to snap another shot, “that I had the chance to show them off.”
