NEW YORK (AP) — A steady rain marked the return of Rodarte at New York Fashion Week as it held its show in a flower-strewn cemetery in Manhattan's East Village.

There were grumbles as guests sat down on waterlogged wooden chairs, and it seemed as if the weather was going to ruin Sunday evening's show. But the opposite proved true. Somehow the raindrops and the misty air at the 19th-century Marble Cemetery enhanced the mood, providing a perfect backdrop for the filmy, floral creations.

Guests were particularly taken with the rose-bedecked tulle veils and the towering flowered headdresses that made the models look like gorgeous ghosts from a past century, perhaps a reference to the burial vaults below.
