Nicholas K | Fashion Week Spring 2012


The Spring Summer 2012 season kicked off at 9 AM with Nicholas K. The clothes had a mid toned palette of sheer beiges, blue and orange styled in layers, most topped with an overcoat. The lightweight fabrics flowed loosely behind the models as they moved down the runway in chunky heels. The models wore their […]

Vivienne Tam | Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011


Fashion met function at Lincoln Center as designer Vivienne Tam debuted her version of the Square, a credit card reader that plugs into your cellphone, during her 2011 show. Tam described her Fall 2011 collection as “a balance of new and old, ancient and modern.” The standout collection featured looks and fabrics for every occasion. […]

L.A.M.B. | Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011

Soldier Girl, Ragga Muffin, London Girl, Buffalo Girl, Mod Girl, Glamour Girl

Pop star Gwen Stefani presented the Fall/Winter collection of her L.A.M.B. clothing line on the final night of Mercedes-Benz fashion week. No doubt (pun intended) her musical background influenced the show, which truly was an amazing production. A bass heavy playlist provided the soundtrack for the runway show, which featured six distinct mini collections. We […]

Christian Siriano | Fashion Week Fall Winter 2011


Every season I look forward to the Christian Siriano show. I have been a fan of his since he first popped up on TV screens on Project Runway with a funky haircut and called everything “fierce.” The designer did not disappoint me with his Fall/Winter 2011 collection, especially with the evening gowns and shoes. Final […]

Tibi | Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011


The majority of daytime looks from Tibi Fall/Winter 2011 collection was made up of a pretty somber color palette of olive green, beige and gray for daytime looks. A pink knit hat provided a pop of color. The evening looks provided a richer color palette of white, blue, red and gold. Throughout the show I […]

Temperley London | Spring 2011

Designer Alice Temperley imagined an “era of courtly love” when designing her Spring 2011 collection, specifically the courting of King Arthur and his wife Guinevere. However, Temperely’s Guinevere is no meek maiden. Many of her looks were worn with metal “armor,” giving a hard edge to the romantic looks. Printed jumpsuits and ruffled dresses were held […]

Cynthia Steffe | Spring 2011

Designer Shaun Kearney captured the essences of spring in Cynthia Steffe’s Spring 2011 collection. Vibrant hues of greens, yellows and fuchsia were not in short supply, flounce dresses and silk shorts, suits and jumpsuits were the show stoppers. Kearney played with asymmetry and cutouts, which can sometimes come off as unbalanced, but he was able to […]

Jenny Packham | Spring 2011

I almost missed Jenny Packham’s first show at New York Fashion Week. The British designer presented her collection at 9 AM (an ungodly hour during fashion week), in the Studio at Lincoln Center. Boy, am I glad I made it! The Central St. Martin’s graduate was behind the beautiful gold gown that Miley Cyrus wore […]

Tibi | Spring 2011

After seeing the Tibi Spring 2011 collection, I must say it was one of the many moments during fashion week where I was proud to be a girl.  The paisley and floral prints, petal appliqués, pops of bright orange and purple made me want to don one of the circle skirted dresses and do a couple […]

Vassilios Kostesos | Spring 2011

A modern take on ancient Greece came marching down the runway at the Vassilios Kostetsos Spring 2011 show.  Metallics, structure and buoyancy, things that are very Greek, were the themes of the show.  Although the two latter descriptions may contradict the other, Kostetsos was able to marry the two to present a cohesive collection. The […]
