The BCBG Max Azria show at New York Fashion Week was filled with neutral colours and silky fabrics. The most notable element of the fashions was the belted waists. Almost every look was completed with a tied leather belt around the waist. The spring show exhibited mini bubble skirts, wide leg trousers and detailed necklines. The designer describes his creations as "etching the silhouette with luminosity using layers of transparencies."
