GEORGINE Spring 2015

GEORGINE is a fairly new designer at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and showed at MBFW for the first time at Fall 2014. I was a fan of high-glam-yet-totally-wearable Fall 2014 collection, and Spring 2015 did not disappoint. Spring 2015 was majorly glamorous and done in a great color story– gold, mint, orange and some great neutrals.

Katya Leonovich Spring 2014 NYFW

Katya Leonovich Spring 2014 continued the trend of neutral patterns, loose silhouettes and interesting cutouts. There was a definite evolution of pattern and shape from the Fall 2013 show. Katya Leonovich does chiffon in a way that’s very interesting and somewhat edgy rather than sweet. I’m hoping the style will continue to be one of her signatures in collections to come.

Art Meets Fashion– Yuna Yang Spring 2014 | NYFW

An artist draws inspiration from things in their environment—things they see, taste, feel or just plain like. A fashion designer, with each garment a work of art, draws inspiration in similar ways that a traditional artist does. Over the past century or so many designers have drawn their influence from the art world including Elsa Schiaparelli (influenced by Salvador Dali), Yves Saint Laurent (influenced by Piet Mondrian), and Louis Vuitton (who collaborated with Takashi Murakami in 2002). Now added to this illustrious list is, New York-based designer, Yuna Yang ( …

Details | Son Jung Wan Spring 2014 | NYFW

neutral spring 2014 trend at son jung wan on the runway



Neutrals appear to be a leading trend for S/S 2014, whether black and white or the softer beige and cream that’s being shown. Skin is in– cutouts and crop tops continue to be popular and leather is gaining momentum as well.

Expect shimmery fabrics and sheer chiffon to have a major moment. Son Jung Wan used a number of fabrics with shimmer or high sheen, and a few looks also featured gold or rose gold sequins. Additionally, pants and jumpsuits are in, especially for cocktail and eveningwear. …

Ai | New York Fashion Week Snippet

ai art institute new york runway

Quick trend report as we head into NYFW day three– it’s safe to start looking for:

  • leather, especially in pale colors
  • neutrals, especially nude
  • geometric patterns, especially neutrals
  • crop tops
  • culottes
  • pencil skirts, especially the midi length
  • metallics
  • texture.

I might be wrong, but I think emerald and blue are going to be phasing out for spring. They’ll still be popular colors, but even Desigual showed a collection filled with black and white print.

More spring fashion to come!

Brandon Sun F/W 2013 | New York Fashion Week

A very downtown, undone city-chic collection from Brandon Sun. Very specific, but very cool. Brandon Sun used to be Design Director for Oscar de la Renta furs, so that fabric that looks like velvet? It’s actually mink. So interesting. Such a high-end material done in a bit of an insouciant way.

Catherine Malandrino F/W 2013 | New York Fashion Week

For Fall/Winter 2013, Catherine Malandrino was inspired by the work of Art Deco era interior designer Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann. The dark color story of black, oxblood, olive and blue looked surprisingly soft– the geometric patterns were sweetened by the contrast of loose lines and an unexpectedly relaxed fit. Favorites include the leather and velvet pieces as well as the black and nude patterned dresses.

Rafael Cennamo Fall 2013 | New York Fashion Week

Everything was aglitter at Rafael Cennamo F/W 2013. Having also seen the spring collection, I thought that the fall collection was a good next step forward. This one appeared better cut to my eye, as well as somehow more wearable than the last without losing any of the drama and flair I associate with the brand.
