The Fall 2008 Form show was held in the brand new, ultra modern New Museum, which has risen in all its contemporary magnificence in the New York City neighborhood known as The Bowery.

The show, scheduled for 10AM, got off to a late and somewhat disorganized start with invited-and-rsvp'd-guests not on the guest list and photographers given passes to stand in the audience section rather than being directed to the photographer’s riser. But once we entered the New Museum's Sky Lounge, we quickly saw the cause of all the giddiness and confusion; Form had been starstruck by the Reality TV Prom God. The Form Fashion Show had been selected (along with R Scott French for the male contestants) to showcase the talents of the female contestants of Bravo TV's reality show, Make Me a Super Model. And right there front and center were the shows stars, Tyson Beckford and Niki Taylor. Handbag designer and girl-about-town Genevieve Jones was also present, sitting on the front row in a smart belted white trench coat. But of course; all was explained.

Now for the clothes; they were quite lovely. The line shown was an expansion/ continuation of Form's signature deconstructed softly draped dresses with dresses, suits and coats fluidly constructed from rich natural fabrics. The colors were from a neutral palate of blacks and grays with touches of purple. Many of the garments featured shroudy hooded tops. Hand muffs were another fashionable touch. Over all the garments had a very modern feel that was perfectly suited for what must be the first fashion show at the New Museum.
