Stacy’s show was a smashing success! I am so glad that I went to check out the brand new Boy Meets Girl collection.
Boy Meets Girl® by Stacy Igel returned to New York Fashion Week with the “Invasion Collections” on February 13th. This high-energy, electric show featured not only the popular Boy Meets Girl® Classic Collection but two new collections, Boy Meets Girl® University and Boy Meets Girl® GIRLS.
“This season I was inspired by the “BritPop” music scene of the early 90s where bands such as Oasis, Blur, Suede, and later on The Spice Girls, developed a unique British reaction to the various musical and cultural trends of the period in the United States at that time,” says Stacy Igel, Boy Meets Girl® Founder/Creative Director. The Boy Meets Girl collection incorporates loud “pops” of color, and fun, edgy and unapologetic phraseology and imagery. This invasion is all about attitude, and attitude is age-defying. That’s why we’re introducing three collections this season, Boy Meets Girl® GIRLS, University, and Classic.”
