Michael Wiehe

At the West 18th Street Fashion Show

The theme for this year's West 18th Street Fashion Show — our fair city's can't-be-missed runway event — was Summer in Spain. And boy, is summertime Spain a horny place. Designers went all Pamplona for the show, with bull horns protruding from models' heads and shoulders and knees and toes. Then along came Michael Wiehe's long-legged lasses, draped in airy, beachy fabric, expertly tailored. His models strutted down the runway with leashes as props, each attached to an invisible pup. His six designs were all cut from the same two fabrics, in a brilliant mix of nautical stripes and floral print that turned West 18th Street into a sunbaked Barcelona avenue. While other designs snorted and stampeded, Wiehe's clothes breezed down the aisle. His pieces were no bullshit and all inspiration.
