Cut it Out

September 17, 2009


One of my favorite trends I’ve been seeing on the runways this week is the use of cut-outs. It’s interesting to see all of the different ways that designers choose to use the technique–ranging from more subtle sheer panels to graphic removal of fabric to create pattern. Check out how Narciso Rodriguez, Marc Jacobs and Rodarte (from left to right, above) all used the technique in successful ways. (Click to enlarge)
