Lepore and Yeohlee travel through space and time to create their looks for fall. Our Stephanie Simon has more from the runway.

For fall 2013, Designer Nanette Lepore was inspired by space exploration.

Lepore said, “Well I was very fascinated by the images that the rover was sending back to Mars, and how exciting the idea of like a new world! We started with a print that was like a slice of the earth, and then manipulated it with a watery print, that we then manipulated. The shoes and handbags are of this great hologram material.”

And dressed in Lepore, Olympic gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman was excited to rocket (rock it) in the front row! Raisman said, “Like you said, I’m used to being all sweaty and chalky in a leotard all the time. To get dressed up, wear high heels, I’m normally bare foot on a balance beam. It’s exciting and I can’t wait.”

Actress from Deception, Ella Rae Peck said, “I have never been so excited about clothing than I am right now at this moment after seeing this show. I have some shopping to do!”

It seems the stars are always aligned at fashion week for Lepore. From Nanette Lepore's intergalactic exploration, we head back to earth for Yeohlee’s looks for fall.

Fashion week wouldn't be complete without pleats. Yeohlee’s crisp looks for fall pop with color. Her inspiration was President Franklin Delanor Roosevelt's Four Freedom's speech from his 1941 State of the Union address.

Yeohlee said, “It is really about the freedom of expression and the clothes that have the comfort of freedom of ease.”

In addition to freedom of speech and worship and freedom from want and fear, Yeohlee also offers fashion freedom.
