  • Fashion Designer Uma Wang Debuts FW 2012 Collection

    Uma Wang

    Chinese fashion designer Uma Wang is rapidly emerging as the industry's first truly international designer. In her FW '12 collection, she showcases the signature east meets west that has helped her become one to watch. Wang's Milan showing featured Western cowboy dusters combined with traditional knitwear for an Avant- Garde, Gothic aesthetic. Using mostly black with hints of dark greens and the occasional khaki, the color palette was deceptively simple as Wang kept it interesting by combining fabrics rather than prints.

    Nothing in Wang's line was form fitting, rather the cuts that came down the runway were roomy dresses sometimes worn over pants, but nothing was baggy or shapeless, just elegantly drapey. As is typical of Wang, many of the designs were asymmetric and for this show, had a definite 90's grunge look showcased in the holey sweaters and nubby fabrics. Although Wang spent time in China perfecting her knitwear, she also trained at London's elite

And where some iconic restaurants keep the same concept year-in and year-out at their flagship venues - to the point where even fans are hankering for a reinvention - Michael McCarty is always introducing something new, fun and timely. We asked McCarty to talk about five new things we've noted about Michael's recently.

    Asian-Inspired Apps in Manhattan

    Michael McCarty: My love affair with Asian cuisines goes back as far as time I spent cooking in the 1970s in Paris. One of my best friends there, Robert Vifian, had emigrated there in 1968 from his native Vietnam after the fall of Saigon, and at his restaurant Tan Dhin I was experiencing Asian "fusion" before it was even being called that. With extraordinary young chefs of Asian heritage heading the kitchens of both Michael's New York and Michael's Santa Monica, we've
