Mara Hoffman’s “Hysterical Levitation” Fashion Video Is Hysterical

When designer Mara Hoffman presented her collection at Fashion Week this year, she went the artsy route by projecting a psychedelic film in the background as her models walked the runway.

How To Rock The Army Jacket Spring Trend

Funny thing about fashion shows: we spend all our time obsessing over what’s coming down the runway for next season.
