Brooklyn designer Suzanne Rae showed her Fall/Winter 2011 collection, her fourth, at New York Fashion Week just before Valentine’s Day. Inspired by and made for the “progressive, modern woman,” according to Rae, the line presented a feminist and feminine exploration of shapes and forms using sustainable and deadstock fabrics.

Rae’s ethos translated into strong looks with great structure and tailoring, mixed with lace and silk accents for a ladylike twist. But the show wasn’t hers alone. Rae enlisted a coterie of New York-based designers and artists, such as jewelers Kim Zitzow and Angela Barrow, the hatters at Yestadt Millinery, and glove-maker Alexis Greene.
In addition to a live performance from Mother Feather, Rae’s presentation also featured a video lookbook by Alexandra Roxo.
