Hair trends like lots of texture and intricate braiding and beauty looks like a deep red lip were a resounding theme at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. A return to glamour a la the ladies of "Mad Men" was apparent, and the state of the union in American fashion was strong for Fall 2011!
"Project Runway" alumni were no strangers to the tents this season, and standouts like Christian Siriano, Irina Shabayeva, Ivy Higa , Daniel Vosovic, Althea Harper and Leanne Marshall showed off their latest work alongside the likes of legends Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Betsey Johnson, Monique Lhuillier and Oscar de la Renta.

"Project Runway" Season 8 designer Ivy Higa was born and raised in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii and has a kitchen full of macadamia nuts to prove it but now represents the home team as one of this season's three New Yorkers. The Manhattanite proves during her home visit that big things (and entire fall collections) come from small apartments, and shows Tim Gunn her Transformer aesthetic and a glimpse at her dark side at her casting session.
