Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part Three

So I took a bit of a break from the fashion posts, but they're here to stay! New York Fashion Week is long gone and while a lot of collections failed to make a mark, The Row just floored everyone. ┬áHere are some of the collections. Alice + Olivia is a collection I always look forward to. I love the contemporary and influence of retro styles. The prints and laces dresses look amazing. Reem Acra's gowns are stunning with the metallic sheer gowns and embellishments. Zac Posen had a relatively modest collection with…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alice + Olivia and Reem Acra

Fall 2014 RTW : 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alice + Olivia and Reem Acra

More gorgeousness with fall collections from Phillip Lim, Alice + Olivia and Reem Acra at New York Fashion Week!     3.1 Phillip Lim There's a boxy architecture on show which I'm not a fan of but I can appreciate it. I like the use of pastels for fall along with black. Some of the colour and texture blocking seemed to crude but there is a brown and black leather top which looks great as do the aqua pastel pants. Yes, there are certain pieces where I can find the appeal but overall,…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : 3.1 Phillip Lim, Donna Karan and Alice + Olivia   3.1 Phillip Lim Inspired by geodes, this collection took the literal and embroidered it well to the silhouettes.

I love…Read more

Fashion 2013 RTW : Oscar de la Renta, Alice + Olivia and Carlos Miele

Fashion 2013 RTW : Oscar de la Renta Oscar de la Renta's collection had a sense of high fashion when it started. The sleek silhouettes and hats had a very classic look about them. The collection had brilliant statement pieces. The chartreuse blouse with the printed skirt looked magnificent. With a more classic approach, the gowns with that beautiful draping are worthy of any red carpet. I loved the finale purple gown in that intense colour. I have to say though, I hated the hair and makeup.   Alice + Olivia I always…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Alice + Olivia

Alice + Olivia always have young, fun and quirky collections. this one is no different. I like the pretty flare skirt summer dresses. I love the sequin dresses and the maxi dresses. I like the leopard print dress as well. The coral strapless dress with a wrap on the bottom looks amazing, as does the red and blue print blazer.                                                                 Image…Read more

Resort 2013 : Alice + Olivia

Alice + Olivia's resort collection is fun and feminine. I like the lavender and purples with the green hues. I love the splash print halter dress and the lavender skinny pants. The blue and white dress with the looks geometric and bold. I really love the green stilettos and the floral maxi. They are certainly outfits that I've liked in most resort collections so far. This is really wearable and well co-ordinated collection with plenty of variety.                                …Read more
