Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part Two

Hello people! here's the second installment of Spring 2015 RTW New York Fashion Week! You can catch up with part one here.   I'll come out and say it, I'm not the biggest fan of the active wear Alexander Wang aesthetic. I don't necessarily get it. But I do recognize certain collections, like last season's that was spectacular. This one in comparison is a bit uninspiring and feels too literal. The canvas shoe dresses and heavy beaded tops look great on first glance but not very wearable. I do however, like the crop…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Christian Siriano and Mara Hoffman

Fall 2014 RTW : Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Christian Siriano and Mara Hoffman

New York Fashion Week with Hervé Léger where there's always a new take on the bandage dress and Mara Hoffman who has great prints; colour me excited!   Hervé Léger by Max Azria There's a flat out bandage dress in this collection, but it's about the cage dress. More wearable bondage dress perhaps? Either way, it's incredibly flattering and sexy. I loved the cuts and straps, it's all done without going over the top. I generally don't like fringe and didn't like it much here either. The dresses with the embellishment look very futuristic…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Hervé Léger By Max Azria, Christian Siriano and Alexander Wang

Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Hervé Léger By Max Azria, Christian Siriano and Alexander Wang   Hervé Léger By Max Azria This collection took a very different turn from the iconic bodycon that Hervé Léger is famous for. Instead we have more volume but you can almost shape the silhouette you want with the well placed zippers. The overall look is quite unique and certainly puts the brand in another direction.   Christian Siriano Inspired by colourful Mexican homes, this collection doesn't lack colour at all. I love the day…Read more

Fall 2013 RTW : Christian Siriano, Alexander Wang and Alexandre Herchcovitch

Mid way through New York Fashion Week, most of the collections were showcased in an incredibly busy and tight schedule. These three stood out very distinctly. Christian Siriano Like his previous collection, Christian Siriano is certainly inspired by Russia. The black dress with a sheer cape and gold embroidery hits it spot on and for me that was the best piece in the collection. It starts very hard and dark with fur, knits and leather in a mix. When you see gold you expect a tad bit more glamour in the collection and…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano's collection is inspired by a ballet and you can see the lightness and grace in the clothes as well. I like the blue sequin top and ankle length trousers. The finale dresses really stole the show. It was literal and so a bit unexpected. But nevertheless, the blue and pink lix in the layered gown was beautiful. The watercolour print dresses had a beautiful landscape like look to it. The aqua coloured tulle dress with feathers was gorgeous as well. The sheer white dress with feathers over it was another favourite.…Read more
