"American Gothic" was the theme for
Wink's '80s-inspired collection, which
included direct references to such pop-culture

coats, reminiscent of Ally Sheedy in The
Breakfast Clubwere worn with zip pants and
flat ankle boots. There were also pleated
skirts, low-waisted sweatshirt dresses and
satin-cuffed jeans—ideal urban-combat gear.
The show ended with a navy-washed strapless
dress—the one that the bad, pretty girl, who
in junior high smoked in between classes,
would have worn to the prom.
