Mannequin Maquette

Alice Roi Sketches Fall 2007 CollectionIt's Fashion Week again in NYC, and I'm hooked again on watching unedited coverage of the shows on WNYC. One of the designers I like to follow is Alice Roi. In a recent article, Roi cited Madeline of children’s books fame as an inspiration for her Fall 2007 collection. Alice Roi Models Fall 2007 Collection
After seeing the photo of Roi's sketches, I checked out her show online and found some pix that look surprisingly like the designer's conception. Now, does that sketch remind me of Madeline? Nope. But I still applaud Roi for successfully translating her idea into something concrete. (Images via NY Times,
