To celebrate the beginning of New York Fashion Week (Feb 9!), New York Magazine asked 99 designers to give one image and one word that elicits their fall 2012 collections.
"It seems this season will bring lots of intricately detailed prints (from Rebecca Taylor, Wes Gordon, and Kaelen), vintage photography (see Nanette Lepore, Jason Wu and WHiT), and plenty of original sketches and photography." - New York Magazine
Awesome, right? You can scope out all 99 here.
A few more of my faves after the jump!
