Angels and Demons

Angel Sanchez used such diverse fabrics at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for his Fall/Winter 2015 runway show. Fabrics such as leather, vinyl, neoprene, and wool made for a great “experiment”. It seems that he looks at evening wear in a more modern way, using 70’s inspiration and mixing it with today’s culture. The tailoring is flawless. All […]

Mixology

Ranfan‘s designs at her runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week are unusual, playful, wearable, and very beautifully made. This designer delivered incredible furs with perfect structure and draping. The sophisticated silhouettes were modern, elegant, and feminine. The show was fabulous with sparkling embellishments and bright colors. My only struggle was figuring out how I can buy […]

It’s All About That Style

The Malan Breton show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week depicts a view of culture and beauty.  Not only was Malan’s Taiwan inspired collection beautiful, but everything was styled so well. This bright red in this jacket is brilliant and I am definitely adding these pants to my mental shopping cart.  This is how you mix prints…one color carrying over […]

Over the Top

Son Jung Wan wows the audience at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 with her gorgeous, feminine looks. All the models displayed slicked back hair and dewy makeup. The soft silhouettes are mixed with edgy details to create a beautiful collection for the sophisticated woman. All of her designs are totally wearable. I’ll take one […]

The Art of Fashion

Lie Sangbong at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 showed crisp, fine tailored designs with a color palette of whites, blues, pinks, and purples. The cloud and butterfly patterns give me such an excitement for Spring. The colors and prints will definitely lift your spirits. This is one of most striking and unique catwalks I’ve ever […]

Striking A Balance

Bold, floral, and sexy describes the Carmen Marc Valvo show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. And not just for the women’s apparel, but for men’s as well. The pieces are structured, yet romantic. The colors are simple, yet striking. The relaxed and slouchy trend is going to be big this spring. Adding a belt creates the perfect feminine silhouette. […]

Celebrity Treatment

The only word that comes to my mind when looking at the Tadashi Shoji designs at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is this: STUNNING. I predict that you will be seeing his designs on a few celebrities this coming year. The silhouette on this jacket is too amazing for words. But I bet you’re wondering how […]

Shake It Up

The Hub at the Hudson Hotel was turned into a barn party with bales of hay and live music.  Natural makeup and pretty tousled waves completed the high fashion country theme at the Jay Godfrey presentation at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. So many trends here, I don’t even know where to start–lace, asymmetrical hem, fringe.  Pick […]

The End of an Era

Ricardo Seco chose the Angel Orensanz Foundation Center for his runway show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  The architectural details combined with the use of magenta and blue lighting made it the most beautiful venue I encountered during the week.   I thought I had found the perfect seat for capturing photos.  I assumed the models would come through the […]

More Than a Feeling

I know it may be difficult to think of Fall 2014 when summer hasn’t even started yet…at least for those of us in the Midwest.  Rebecca Minkoff‘s show somehow leaves me not feeling so bad about cold weather and snow. Over-sized cobalt blue coat paired with metallic narrow pants and black top and beanie….sick.  Could […]
