NYFW -- The Incubator

Last night, The Incubator presented S/S 2011 with a special live performance by Foxy Brown.  To celebrate the release of his YFC by Yellow Fever Spring/Summer 2011 collection, Jamison Ernest presents The Incubator: Fashion Week SS/11 in collaboration with fellow designers Prince Peter and Keep Me on Wednesday, September 15th at Capitale. The designers will unveil their collections in three unique runway shows speckled with celebrities from virtually every facet of the creative world. 

YFC by Yellow Fevers newest collection is loosely inspired by Axl Rose in his hay day, wearing black leather and hanging with Kelly Bundy in her tight Robert Palmer back-up-girl mini-dress. The two go on a holiday to Marthas Vineyard and relax until Axl loses his prescription pills, at which point they flee to Japan and run into a neo-techno samurai. These visions are seamlessly integrated to produce a number of wearable and fresh modern metropolitan looks. The YFC show will feature a runway appearance by Tyson Ritter of the All American Rejects.

Ernest's work attracts a diverse audience of artists, entertainers, and celebrities as well as other key movers and shakers, making him the prime candidate to lead such an initiative. Ive extended the benefits of the hard work I put into my own projects to other designers like Keep Me and Prince Peter Collection who feel I have the potential to do something sincere and interesting but didnt have a platform. It’s important to always give back whenever you can with everything you do in life, he explains.

Cult t-shirt designer Prince Peter draws inspiration from Andy Warhols eponymous Factory, a creative hothouse during an era when the City was both a muse and a canvas. The collection celebrates all darlings of the underground and harkens back to his rock n roll roots. His fabrics are airy and light, and the shirts are easy to tailor, layer, and wear in all seasons.

Keep Me offers a range of can’t-live-without and never-take-them-off loungewear in new colors and variations, as well as a Spring 2011 capsule collection inspired by a surfing trip to Taha a, Tahiti. Designers drew from a muted sunset color palette and the barely-there character of the island lifestyle to create pieces that are both comfortable and chic.

Spotted VIP Guest: Diane Von Furstenberg, Andre Leon Talley, Rocker Kevin Rudolf, Actor S cott Porter (Friday Night Lights), Dylan McDermott, UK band Eddie the Gun, MTV Host Tim Cash, Actress Kelly Brook,  TV Personality Amber Ettinger, Nascar driver Brian Vickers, Foxy Brown, Knicks star Danilo Gallinari, Russell Simmons and more.
