It was pandemonium in Milk Studios on Sunday night for Peter Jensen's debut on the American stage, a clammer of clinking beer bottles and loud party chatter, the kind of New York Fashion Week environment where people seem more ready for the bar than looking at clothes. Jensen, though, is a veteran. He's been presenting his clothes to adoring audiences for nearly a decade on the other side of the pond and he knows how to grab a crowd's attention. So as soon as Nina Persson of The Cardigans walked on stage to begin her set of songbook ballads that would soundtrack the show, the noise stopped, and Jensen's clothes came parading down the runway, each outfit as a main attraction. The thing is, you have to pay attention to notice the details that make Jensen's clothes so delicately great, like the tiny little Queen's Guards print on a shirt or the little white flowers embroidering a full length black dress. It was a quiet dream world of a show, the kind that is rare in the deafening confusion of NYFW. Alas, as soon as the last look finished walking down the runway, we were back in the calamity of the moment, and that's why in this video interview with Jensen, you'll have to excuse the noise in the background.
