HAVE IT YOUR WAY

Eliza Starbuck of Bright Young Things may have graduated beyond the little black dress she started with, but her ethos of less is more could not be more apparent. At The GreenShows during New York Fashion Week, Starbuck presented a Spring/Summer 2011 collection that comprised just eight basic pieces. Still, we were mentally scrambling to keep track of where each one appeared in the assembly of looks the followed, from halter-neck tops that can be worn as bottoms to jackets that reverse to become shirts.

When dresses that transform into skirts started coming down the catwalk, we threw our hands up in exasperation.

When dresses that transform into skirts started coming down the catwalk, we threw our hands up in exasperation. Flipped, reversed, molded, and folded, each garment opened up endless styling possibilities. Who needs a credit card when you have creativity on your side?
