It was just the other day that we were up in the Herve Leger offices talking to creative director Lubov Azria about how to wear the current season when she mentioned that movement is one of her big passions, and there it was on the runway on Saturday: unfinished tweed fringe — flying and dancing wildly on the runway to an electroclash soundtrack.

A presentation as gritty, modern and girl-powered as this one better have a good beat — and it did. Here’s how Herve Leger sounded:
