Max Azria made quite a splash at New York Fashion Week. Despite some financial troubles at his firm, the designer had two shows. First up was BCBG.. from all accounts a packed house.

Happening Now got to see the Spring 2014 looks from Herve Leger by Max Azria. Pop star Nicki Minaj was front row at the intense show.. surrounded by photographers and bodyguards. The collection was heavy on black and white and on leather.. with some pieces that could serve as body armor at the end of the world.

There's also a new honor for Mister Azria.. a Barbie will wear Herve Leger this Fall. (check out picture below) The special edition Barbie will be wrapped in signature tight bondage ribbons and will be available at Herve Leger stores, and at BarbieCollector.com
