Looking Ahead to the Vintage Inspirations of New York Fashion Week has a great section about inspirations fashion designers used for the collections they will be showing at New York Fashion Week beginning on Friday. Here are some lines that classic film aficionados can look forward to:

Jackie Rogers
Saturday, February 3 at 5 p.m.

"My Fall 2007 collection, After the Deluge, reflects the simplicity of the Bauhaus period in the late 1920's and early 1930's. Because my clothes are cut on the bias and off-grain, they exude sexuality and sensuality.

Venexiana by Kati Stern
Saturday, February 3 at 9 p.m.

"The collection exudes the romantic elegance of old-world Hollywood glamour."

Tuesday, February 6 at 9 a.m.

"Tibi's Fall 2007 collection is French-inspired, with heavy references to twenties Paris—a modern take on slim skirts, drop-waist dresses, and boxy jackets. The look is elegant and overly flirty juxtaposed with a relaxed and tomboy attitude…think Amelia Earhart playing dress-up."

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti
Tuesday, February 6 from 6 to 8 p.m.

"I'm reinterpreting the glamour of the fifties in a very youthful manner appropriate for the modern day."

Jayson Brundson
Thursday, February 8 at 9 p.m.

"The twenties and thirties glamour. Art Deco and Tamara de Lempicka's cubist paintings."

Friday, February 9 at 12 p.m.

"We've focused on two golden eras of the twentieth century: Charleston flapper fashion for women and the optimistic late 1950's for the men's collection."
Chris Benz
Monday, February 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.

"The collection is inspired by twenties reckless youth and the ageless tomboys Elettra Wiedemann, Loulou de la Falaise, and Patti Smith."

Pegah Anvarian
Tuesday, February 6 at 7 p.m.

"I rethought the image of the modern femme fatale, exploring and juxtaposing both her lighter and darker sides. The designs emanate a distinct radiance and a thoughtful amalgamation of texture, color, function, and form."

Tuesday, February 6 at 9 p.m.

"Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd."

Malan Breton
Friday, February 9 at 9 a.m.

"Gaudí meets Elizabeth Taylor in a Gershwin musical circa 1957."
