Stacy previewed her new capsule collection titled Biohazard  last night in front of a enthusiastic crowd of over 100 fans and sponsors at The Cutting Room, a soon to be opened hot spot for live music on East 32nd Street. A live band, NWSPR - New Wave Solar Powered Robots, provided music before the show, during a cocktail hour and after the show.

This is Stacy's third season. Funding for her collections comes from donors, many of whom became aware of Stacy's designs from social media sites like Facebook, then continued to follow her progress on her blog taffetadarlings.blogspot.com/.

Contributions were made via kickstarter.com, a website that specializes in helping new businesses obtain funding. This season, Stacy raised over $11,000 from 67 different backers.

The show featured 12 edgy but highly wearable looks. Hard lines, raw edges, synthetic and surface treated fabrics served as the foundation for the collection. Outstanding were the motorcycle vest in white neoprene with white latex hot pants & white athletic mesh tank; cobalt jacket & cigarette pant in polyurethane coated nylon rip-stop; and strapless dress with black liquid bodice & fireball red cire skirt.

Bright white, neon pink, fireball red, vapor blue and atomic orange underscored her message of "hazmat chic". This collection is not for the timid. It is bold and brash - designs that serve as aesthetic reminders to both natural and man-made hazards that threaten our lives.
