StyleWeek Season 14: Texture, pattern and cut on day three.

Gypset Girl, Clothes Horse Clothing, Born Again Vintage and Peach Carr debut ready-to-wear lines.

Day three was a mixed medley of looks, running the gamut from clean-cut work appropro attire to feather puffs to fringe festooned Americana grunge.
