Sachika Spring 2011 was another really fun show which included several surprise appearances from reality stars Alex McCord, Caroline Manzo, Vanessa & Angela Simmons, Adrienne Bailon and Ice-T's wife Coco.
In the audience was Alex's husband Simon Van Kempen with their son, Francois, Ice -T (with his entourage), Singer Kat Deluna, Tyson Beckford and Caroline Manzo's daughter who all came out to show their support for those walking in the show as well as the Sachika Twins who put together a really fun and high spirited collection for Spring 2011.

One of the first presentations that I had the pleasure of viewing at the Lincoln Center was designer, Tadashi Shoji's. For this presentation, the models stood beneath white trees dressed in pale gowns of muted blushes, soft lilacs and golds; crinkled silk chiffon, ruffled organza and lace.
