New York Fashion Week: Popomomo Fall 2010, "City of Quartz" (Photos)
We are no strangers to Popomomo's (short for post-postmodern movement) sustainable designs -- we have been covering Lizz Wasserman's L.A.-based label since Spring 2009 -- and we were delighted to sit front row for her New York Fashion Week debut at the GreenShows. Garments are made with sustainable fabrics -- hemp, organic cotton, tencel, bamboo -- and Wasserman has even launched Curatorial for spring '10, a line made entirely from vintage and deadstock fabrics. View her fall 2010 collection, "City of Quartz"; relaxed fit dresses, cardigans, and capes in steel grey and teal, after the jump.

City of Quartz is cold, clear and beautiful. It's a literal idea about crystal and ice, both of which have strong unique shapes, like this collection, and also a reference to the Mike Davis book about Los Angeles. I started this line in Brooklyn in 2007, so this is a coming home of sorts for us, after showing during LA Fashion Week and operating in sunny Los Angeles.
