Introducing the Copperwheat Spring 2011 menswear collection “Brave New World” by Ben & Lee Copperwheat. This has to be one of my favorite presentations I attended during MB NY Fashion Week. Not only was the military theme with the vibrant patterns & the fantastic harem-style cuts just right up my alley, the models made it just that much more interesting to document (haha). The collection was presented in a loft studio in lower Manhattan with the most illuminous natural light shining through wide paneled windows overlooking the city & seaside. I first walked in with all the models loungin’ around, happily showing off the detail in their garments. They soon set up standing in rows, 5×4, front row connecting with the cameras for about a minute before they about-faced & marched to the back of the line. Lead photographer, Jason Mickle, had the boys trying different formations, it was cute. See the full collection below; check the rest for credits & a descrip:

an excerpt from metromode.com:
“”[Detroit] Fashion Week was established basically to help to launch the careers of local designers, to bring some credibility and some notoriety to Michigan’s fashion industry,” says Brian Heath, founder and producer of the state’s only such industry event. Now in its sixth year, it will be held at the Royal Oak Farmers’ Market from Sept. 19-25.
“Detroit Fashion Week is different from New York in that we’ve taken the position of not only doing an industry event, but also educating the local design community as to what the industry expects outside of Michigan.” Heath sees this as a way to better educate local designers about the industry’s seasonal buying calendar. While it’s now an established show whose designers have attracted coverage from the likes of CNN Money and Women’s Wear Daily, the event has been quick to welcome new apparel and accessories designers.”
