During New York Fashion Week 2008, Rudy Nureyev Still A Fashion Influence

Nureyev's legacy apparently not only encompasses the world of dance, but of fashion as well. Last week, Stefano Tonchi, The editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, noticed how a New York Fashion Week show channeled Nureyev's style. In his post on T's "The Moment" Blog, (entitled "New York Fashion Week: What Is Wearable") Tonchi says:

At the Z Zegna show it was the nostalgic reference to Rudy Nureyev, the legendary ballet dancer, that made an impact. Those unwearable artistic gestures are what will bring me to the Zegna store on Fifth Avenue . . .
Above is a photo from Life Behind the Metaphor of Nureyev signing autographs backstage—and one of the Z Zegna model "channeling Rudy Nureyev . . ." included with Tonchi's post. Nureyev's fashion sense lives on!
