It’s the color you may avoid most in winter. The one that you question, and the one color that you probably tuck deep into your closet until the the spring or summer. I know, I know. You’ve got this love affair with black clothing right now. I understand. Black feels safe, easy, it’s slimming, and you can hide yourself in it quite well. However, listen up ladies! Stop. Right. Now.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and I was thrilled to be invited once again, for a fab styling sesh with TRESemmé, to prep for the runway shows. They did the most incredible job last season, and I knew this season would be no different.
We are at it again. New York Fashion Week kicks off this week. Designers and models take the runways, showcasing their latest collections, while crowds of fashionistas, editors and photographers take over New York City to check out the scene. Fancy soirées are planned to honor the celebration, and we spend a week straight dining on champagne and macarons. If you are lucky enough, you’ll find some real food.
Blogger babes, yoga pants, and one, hot SLT studio. That was the scene this past weekend, when I was invited to host a curated class for SLT’s fancy new studio on the Upper West Side. Over 24 hours later, and I’m still thinking about our sweat sesh, because it rocked, but also because every muscle in my body is still sore (in the best way possible, of course).
To wrap up NYFW, we attended a Fall Fashion Party, celebrating with the teams of MCM x Harper’s BAZAAR. The chic event was hosted by the fabulous accessories brand MCM, as well as Harper’s BAZAAR’s Senior Merchandising Editor, Michelle Fawbush. I spent quite a bit of time chatting with Michelle and it was so much fun to hear her thoughts on this season’s fashion week, as well as the incredible events hosted by Harper’s BAZAAR. While mingling at the event, fancy hors d’oeuvres were passed, and the talented MCM artist, Blair Breitenstein was customizing handbags for the guests, with her incredible fashion illustrations. You may remember the beautiful Soho clutch she illustrated for me, from my previous post.
Do you ever think about stylizing your outfits with a theme behind each one? I once knew a girl that came up with a completely different style to wear every single day. It was as if each outfit was a costume. I loved it, and she inspired me to use creativity in my everyday wardrobe.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing. The city is bustling with designers showcasing their latest collections, and models walking the runways, while editors and fashionistas have taken over the town in their fanciest stilettos, just to get a piece of the action. Since I work in the fashion industry, I will tell you that fashion week trumps it all. Fashion brands and designers hustle the entire year to put together their collections, which are on display during fashion week. You’ll never see the work that goes into each collection behind closed doors, but let me tell you from experience, it is quite a labor of love.
Several new styles have caught my eye for Spring, and the midi skirt is one for them. The midi skirt, is a full, mid length skirt, which lays a few inches below the knees. I have to admit, when I first saw the style, I was hesitant. I didn’t think I could pull off the look since I’m a shortie. I’ve seen these skirts in every store, designed with multiple colors and prints. Many of my friends have been wearing them and I’ve admired the look on other bloggers as well.
It is that time of year again. The temperatures keep dropping and the snow continues to fall. The fashionistas, editors, and stylists of New York, dress in their most fabulous outfits and Uber over to Lincoln Center, where the famous tents of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week stand tall. Yes, it’s the one and only, New York Fashion Week. It is quite a scene over at the entrance of the tents, with men and women, shuffling in and out, to see designers present their latest and greatest Fall/Winter 2015 collections. There are countless photographers waiting outside, snapping away with larger than life cameras, in order to catch the perfect street style shots. The men guarding the doors of the tents seem to have all the power in the world, just for a moment, as you just hope to make it through with flying colors.
On of my favorite events during New York Fashion Week, was Vogue’s Runway Retreat event. It was a fabulous networking lounge, which was held at Bar Boulud, right across from the fashion tents at Lincoln Center. At the event, I mingled with fashionistas, bloggers, and the team members of the fashion brands which partnered with Vogue for the event. I sipped on champagne and nibbled on delicious bites, as I learned more about each one of the brands that featured their products at the event.
