Apricot Lane, Cache, Fossil, Ann Taylor, Bebe, Francesca’s, True Religion and Anthropologie flaunted transitional fall looks in front of a packed house in the Garden Court. Silhouettes were flirty and fun for the ladies and clean and polished for the men. Guests were encouraged to shop their favorite looks after the show, with most participants giving extra discounts to attendees.
