(NEW YORK) PR firm People's Revolution pulled off an impressive feat Sunday morning when they staged a triple billing: Nicholas K, Sergio Davila (recently honored by the Fashion Group International), and Mara Hoffman all presented their fall collections in one sitting. It was an efficient format for fashion show attendees, who often have to run back and forth between Bryant Park and various West Side locales, but it was unfortunate that the clothes themselves were relatively underwhelming. Nicholas K showed his n' hers grunge looks in a collection that desperately needed editing; Sergio Davila gave tailored suits an edge with details like legwarmers, and Mara Hoffman's collection showed off its trademark prints in sexy (if clich├ęd) silhouettes, like the empire-waisted maxidress.
