It was a pleasant New York Saturday, the perfect New York day that postcards are made of.  The energy in the air was one that the main characters of “Sex And The City” would have approved of.  As the character Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) stated, “Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future…this is known as Fashion Week.”   The Son Jung Wan’s Spring Summer 2020 collection highlighted the glamour of vintage wear in a modern twist with the splendor of color.  The color palette evoked the feeling of renewal, a feeling that is often associated with Spring after surviving the harshness of winter.
