MBFW Day 6: New Things in Store for Everyone on a Zen Trip.

HEAD’S UP: It's Fashion Week, baby! Who's ready? We're ready! And we have a slight tweak to share. Of course, we still endeavor to provide a roundup of the best, worst and most interesting Yours Truly&Co. witnesses, from trends to sightings to the rather unusual/bizarre. The tweak has been inspired by Twitter. The coverage will focus, as has become the custom, on what truly inspires or what is so painfully hideous that it is remarkable. However, we will tell that story in 50 words or less. Yes, 50. Or less. Ready? Let the games begin ...

Oscar de la Renta

PERT collection that traverses several decades. Something for every age, every body type. A-line dresses with cinched waist and flared skirt for curves. Delightful prints, bright colors. Fetching lace series not without dowdies. Debit, too, cap-sleeved dress with folds bearing a hideous purple floral - partycrasher! Bumble bee end. (See video above). - YOURS TRULY

DEMOCRACY reigns (Oscar de la Renta). It's all zen (Zang Toi) in the end zone (Junk Food Vintage NFL Curated by Kristin Cavallari) where there is a celebration (Badgley Mischka).

ZEN master of fashion rocks the tents with extreme elegance. The tone of the show is set by a male ballet dancer leaping down the runway. Following are magnificently understated gowns with perfect draping that the fashion world has come to expect from the Malaysian maestro. All were wowed! - NEIL WOLFSON

PARTICULARLY festive day at the House. The new collection, of course. Signature stuff. Crafted well with all of the expected veteran appointments. Another reason for bubbly: first boutique. A staid party last night opened its doors in a tony section of the Upper East Side. - YOURS TRULY
