Anna Dello Russo is to fashion week as burger is to bun - i.e: one cannot exist without the other. A ubiquitous FROW presence here during New York Fashion Week, we caught up with ADR to see what had caught her eye so far this season...
Anna Dello Russo in Victoria Beckham
"I love being in New York," Anna tells Grazia Daily, "because the vibe is so incredible. From all the chic ladies to the cool downtown girls there is a such great style. This season the collections have been particularly strong. Rodarte for instance - the collection was what we loved them for at the beginning - cool, underground street culture with that LA Couture thing. So cool, I always love it when they go in that direction."
Anna also tells us that she is a 'forever fan' of Marc Jacobs; "Marc was, of course, fantastic - he is such a total institution here, and this season there were so many strong looks - the whole experience was like being in a stadium, his shows are always so exciting."
Another designer who has won over Anna's heart is Victoria Beckham; "I mean its incredible. Victoria has completely proven herself and created a whole new career - she is a true fashion designer. Her aesthetic and the hand-writing of her collections is really clear. And the Victoria, Victoria Beckham show was so clever, she has such a good eye. This is the way women are dressing now in Milan in her simple but beautiful dresses. Everyone loves her in Italy."
A final mention went to Alexander Wang whose collection Anna described as "Precise and focused. And also really cool." So what will be on Anna's Spring Summer 2013 shopping list? "I cannot tell you," she says, "there are already far too many things!" We feel your pain Anna, we really do.
