The underlying theme so far at NYFW-- powerful woman, and Designer Jill Stuart's Fall 2018 collection at the National Arts Club in Gramercy Park on Friday is no exception.

Jill says she fell in love with the art venue, (a private 19th century house filled with oil paintings) and knew it was the perfect place to stage her intimate vignettes, inspired by "strong woman, liberation, and a women's ability to express themselves through art, creativity, and their own personal sense of style."

It was truly life imitating art; showcasing all types of  woman simply living their lives-singing celebrities,  pianists, chess playing, tarot car reading, sipping tea and cookies, reading, and hanging at the bar.

Now let's talk about the clothes - rich velvets, satins and metallic brocades, sequins and lace, very romantic, very late 60s, very "NYC Chelsea Girls of London", very Jill Stuart.
