Designer Dish. Kroell Changes While Wu Stays the Same

Devi Kroell

New York Fashion Week marks major changes for some designers, while for others, things stay exactly the same. Such is the case with Devi Kroell and Jason Wu. For Kroell, NYFW marks a time of reinvention and new beginnings. After leaving her namesake company last May, Kroell is returning this New York Fashion Week with a new label, called Dax Gabler, which she will present at the Chelsea Arts Tower on Feb. 16.  Though little information about the line was made available, WWD reported that that it will feature outerwear, footwear and handbags priced between $250 and $890. “I am so grateful to be able to design again,” Kroell said. “Dax Gabler is a liberating and stimulating challenge because it is all about reinventing myself.”

As for Wu, whose show quickly became one of the most coveted to attend, he's preferring to follow the 'If it ain't broke…' adage for his Feb 11 show. The designer has teamed up with again to live-stream his upcoming runway show. And, after a successful run last season, the designer has decided to once again select looks from the collection that will be available five days after the show for exclusive preorder on the Web site.
