New York Fashion Week: 8 Things Looking Forward To from Designers

©ourtesy of  graziadaily.co.uk
New York Fashion Week here, with just a few days left before normal life turns into an elbow-jabbing, style-frenzied, cocktail-heavy New York Fashion Week we can’t help but think of the exciting things to come. January has flown past us quicker than Mo Farah, but we’re ready to pack our cold-weather kit and get FROWing. There are many things to look forward – or hope for – during NYFW: we’ll even see the silver lining of the frosty situation as on streets, it does, after all, generate some impressive winter dressing. Scroll down to see the eight things we’re crossing toes and fingers and faux fur scarves for…

1: New York Fashion Week: Kim Kardashian and Kanye FRONT ROW Action.


Especially considering Yeezus is still reportedly on a mission to get KK onto the front cover of US Vogue. May the match-matchy super-stealthy outfit parade commence. Stilettos in sub-zero temperatures shall soon become the norm.

2: Manolo Blahnik and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Shoe Line Will Be Officially Revealed IN THE FLESH @ New York Fashion Week.


A shoe collaboration made in heaven, quite possibly even crafted by little fashion industry cherubs, will surely be the toast of the town. We’re talking of course about Manolo Blahnik pairing up with SJP. Although we’ve already seen the full collection pics online, this is the chance to try ‘em out for real. The actress has famously long been a fan of the designer’s stilettos since her days as Carrie in Sex and the City, so expect snaking queues of superfans when they launch in a pop up shop in Nordstrom on March 2.

NYFW Recap: Derek Lam

©ourtesy of

Part II is here, with the no other than Derek Lam! New York Fashion Week is still on in full swing and I can’t keep up!!! I may just do multiple posts and weekend posts to keep up with everything! 
One thing I have to say about Derek Lam’s runway show was the shoes…. oh my gosh the shoes!!!! I instantly fell in love with all of them! Derek Lam decided to go a different route this year and not follow the rest of the designers with monochromatic looks, instead, he went with prints.

NYFW: Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2014

IT’S not often, actually, that fashion gives rise to new items. We’ve seen it, done it, got the T-shirt all before and we’re more concerned with rifling through the drawers of the past than we are setting a new agenda when it comes to the technicalities. Narciso Rodriguez has other ideas and this evening introduced us to the “half skirt”, a skirt and shorts hybrid that is just as suggestive as the mini but has a little more practicality about it. Nice. Elsewhere among the collection and the designer mostly stuck to square cuts, bandeau necklines and flat-looking shapes. From afar it looked masculine, androgynous but close-up there were slithers of shine and layers of pretty lace to imbue a sense of femininity.

Fab Kids Get Own Show at F/W

Barbie The Dream Closet Playdate at Lincoln Center, Saturday February 11th
The weekend of New York Fashion Week is the unofficial “bring your kids to the shows” day. It’s a status symbol, really, proving you’re successful and cool enough to show up with an impromptu — albeit miniature — plus-one, Jennifer Lopez style (bonus points if your daughter carries a tiny Chanel bag). But if you’re a fading reality star who has enough trouble wrangling show invitations to begin with, or if you’d just rather watch your kids parade around in clothes instead of skinny models, why not hold your own fashion show starring your own children instead? That way everyone can marvel at your offspring’s cuteness with no distractions at all.
Enter “Kids Rock,” a fashion show that will be held at Grand Central Terminal on September 11, at 6 p.m. WWD reports that the “models” will include Teddy, daughter of Kelly Bensimon; Jeffrey Tarpley, son of Sherri Shepherd; Lil C, Jaden, Cyia, and Carter, children of New York Yankee CC Sabathia; and Amar’e Jr., Assata and Ar’e, children of New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire. They’ll be “wearing the latest trends,” says a spokesperson for Haddad Brands, which is sponsoring the show. Stoudemire will “host,” and the labels represented (Levi’s, Converse, Jordan, and Nike) will donate items to his foundation, as well as to Kids in Distressed Situations.

Before designers show off their wares on the runways of Fashion Week, they channel their inspiration and sketch their creations. For the spring 2014 shows, which kick off Thursday at Lincoln Center and other locales around New York City, those inspirations ranged from Hollywood glamour queens to ancient tribes to modern art. Here’s a peek at some of those fashionable inspirations (in the designers’ own words). — By Julie Gordon, amNew York


NYC F/W Spring 2014: What to expect

Just as you’re trotting out your fall wardrobe, Fashion Week hits NYC with hundreds of designers putting out their visions for — yes — Spring 2014. The shows start Thursday and run through Sept. 12, with the major fashion hub at Lincoln Center, where some 75 designers will strut their stuff in the tents at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. But many others are heading downtown, with Jason Wu abandoning the former church on the Upper East Side for a spot all the way down on Mercer Street. Even Calvin Klein is moving his gig to the brand new Spring Studios in TriBeCa, having shown in its garment center headquarters for five years. Night birds are flying into daytime slots — the fellows at Proenza Schouler are showing at noon instead of 8 p.m., and Tommy Hilfiger trades his evening show for an 11 a.m.-er at Pier 94. Change is good, right? But the schedule is crazy and it’s a headache getting from show to show for sure — so much so that clever Advil is providing free Fashion Week transport in a red-stiletto emblazoned SUV.

Mercedes-Benz NYC Fashion Week in full swing

... Turns Up the Volume !

Spring 2013 feels like “a statement season.”

©ourtesy of Samantha Critchell at NBCNewYork
The real-people-in-the-pool print on Proenza Schouler’s catwalk Wednesday night probably took some fashion insiders — who don’t expect that much newness during these previews — by surprise. The collection by Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough started off by advancing some trends seen for spring, including leather, patchwork, some perforated and mesh textures. The leather was a little shinier, the patchwork a little more random and the textures a little more exaggerated, but, still, they fell in line. The Proenza Schouler duo also offered skirt suits galore, but they weren’t trim and tailored; jackets were collarless and covered in snakeskin, and the skirts were slung low on the hips. But the digital-print satin dresses decorated with neon nailheads on the tops and grommets on the bottom that served as the finale were only as Proenza Schouler can do, and showed why they are considered one of New York’s bellwethers for fashion’s future. The Proenza Schouler styles were a little out there, but it’s where so many others will be..... Read more.

Spring Collection 2013 at New York Fashion Week

NEW YORK – The story of New York Fashion Week has been told in mostly black and white — making it that much harder to ignore all the unusual prints on the runway, even if they, too, were color-free. Marc Jacobs put out oversized black-and-white and red stripes on Monday a day after stripe-happy Tommy Hilfiger, whose red stripes were inspired by rope. Carolina Herrera showed an abstract geometric print on Monday, while Elie Tahari took his prints from Palm Beach, mixing palm leaves, leopard skin and tropical flowers. in earlier previews, Thakoon Panichgul had playful birds, Suno had a retro cell phone print and Jason Wu had prints reminiscent of an X-Ray. At Rebecca Taylor the print was Hawaiian, with fish scales at Monique Lhuillier and “space clouds” at Nicole Miller. “Prints are personality, they have emotion, they tell a story,” said Stacey Bendet, designer of Alice and Olivia — herself wearing a leopard-print dress on Monday to present a collection that included a variety of florals — from digital prints to painterly and candy-colored. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week continues through Thursday before the fashion crowd heads to London, Milan and Paris.

Let’s switch gears: For the past five days, the chatter at New York Fashion Week has been about softening the edges, but Marc Jacobs changed the conversation — as he often does — after going graphic.
Black-and-white stripes followed by red stripes, tan stripes and more black-and-white stripes came rapid fire down the runway.

©ourtesy of designandculturebyed
New York 2012/2013 Fashion Week: The Winter Collection by New York based designer, Marc Jacobs was really … Crazy! It was like 18-17th century fashion mixed with 21st century street style! This fashion week show hosted lots of colors, interesting patterns and some funny looking heels. And the best of all were the too big sized hats made out of fur or other materials. It is worth to mention that the coats that are presented will be the most hottest pieces for winter. Bohemian story through the New York designer Marc Jacobs, who presented his latest collection autumn / winter 2012-2013 in the last Fashion Week in New York.

Candice Swanepoel, FashionTV Model Pic of the Month

©ourtesy of fashionTV.com

Swanepoel was born in a tiny South African province and recently climbed all the way to the top of the fashion world. Her modeling career is a story of many successes and her sweet looks and figure make us want to see more from this bombshell. Candice Swanepoel is our Model of the Week.
At fifteen, South African beauty Candice Swanepoel, was scouted while shopping in a local flea market. Little did she know that this shopping spree back in 2003 would change Swanepoel’s ordinary life into a rollercoaster of catwalks, fashion magazine covers, ad campaigns and a lot of attention from the fashion industry. One year later, sixteen year old Swanepoel was earning approximately 5,000 Euros for a day’s work. Nowadays, she has become one of the world’s most successful models and was recently ranked in 10th place on Forbes’ list of highest paid models in the world, with earnings of about 3.1 million dollars.

Cornejo, New York Designer for ‘Zero’ talks fashion

© Story by Merle Ginsberg at hollywoodreporter.com

Designer Maria Cornejo host New Show With Artist Alice Waese and Wearing Her Own Designs as she was in Los Angeles to launch an art show and début her resort and pre-fall collections. 

Maria Cornejo Designs - H 2012

THR Q&A: Zero’s Maria Cornejo is one line of clothes out of New York that is an insiders’ fashion brand, and her New York fashion week runway shows always prove that, as they are attended by editors at the highest levels of the fashion business. Her clothes are always comfortable and chic, go from day to  with a quick change of shoes or jewelry and  have an avant-garde city cool-girl edge that’s sophisticated without hitting that “arty” line too hard. In other words, they’re rather perfect. Her pants, sweaters and leather jackets have amazing fit and a little twis,- and her dresses achieve the impossible trifecta: They’re sexy and comfortable and interesting. All this, and her prices are much better than most designer clothes, but the quality doesn’t suffer. No wonder smart women love her. Cornejo has a longtime small West Village boutique at Greenwich and Jane, but her eponymous Melrose Place space is many times the size and has the airy feeling of an art gallery. That’s why she decided to host a small art gathering for her friend, former employee and present artist Alice Waese, from New York City, who creates art out of metal, silver and paper. Cornejo doesn’t get to L.A. often as she’s busy Continue reading

Fashion: Paris Fall 2012 Favorites

©ourtesy of Lucire Fashion ::
Allude: Looking back on 2009, one can considerably reminisce upon German designer Andrea Karg’s beautiful looks on the runway during New York Fashion Week collection. Fast forward to 2012, designer Karg takes her aptitude and flair under the luminous fashion spotlight in Paris at the Grand Palais. The brand, founded in 1993, is highly recognized for its beautifully soft materials of cashmere and silks. The main material Allude revolves around is cashmere, used to create her first creation almost twenty years ago: a V-neck pullover designed in 15 different shades. The first piece having gone down in Allude’s history, the same soft material persists two decades later Read more…

Basil Soda: The famous Hôtel Ritz located at the Place Vendôme in Paris was a spectacular place to welcome designer Basil Soda’s chic new collection, in a simple and intimate presentation. The prestigious venue, Salons d’Été, permitted the spectators to walk around the room and dissect details and forms that each piece had to offer. The collection Ensembles were elegantly surrounded by open box-like structures as the luxurious chandeliers’ light gleamed upon each look, highlighting their taste and fragile appearances. From the Lebanese designer haute couture to his ready-to-wear collections, Soda certainly creates feminine designs with completely flawless features, almost reflecting a futuristic woman. His looks are red carpet-worthy, with amazing cuts, shapes and vividly flirtatious colors that accentuate the wearer’s curves.

F/W: Christian Cota, Rachel Zoe

Day Three New York Fashion Week: Sat., February 11, 2012 ©ourtesy Ann Caruso

Christian Cota went back to his Mexican roots and used Aztec prints, silks, floral embroideries, leather and fur for an incredibly strong presentation that is his best, yet.

Rachel Zoe best known as a celebrity stylist, had her second fashion show this season. She did what she knows best by reinventing the decade of fashion she goes “bananas” over.  She drew inspiration from rock’n'roll glamour of the late ’60s from fashion icons Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful.
