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 :  Libertine, Mara Hoffman and Hervé Léger By Max Azria

Fall 2013 RTW : Libertine, Mara Hoffman and Hervé Léger By Max Azria

The next three collections were presented at New York Fashion Week and are so different from the collections seen before. These have spunk, more colours, textures and it's a brilliant melange. Libertine This collection really impressed me. You will hear this a told in this post! The embellished skull print is a great spin on the trend although, it is getting rather old now. Have skull run their course? But there were plenty of other things to marvel at; the mix of prints which look scary and beautiful together. The inspirations are obvious,…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Herve Leger by Max Azria

Herve Leger by Max Azria started out with cuts out a kaleidoscopic patterning. But with leather harnesses added to the mix, you get a stronger look. The greys and nudes turned into graphic prints used between them. This collection is so different from any other, There is a very raw and basic sentiment to it. The little black dresses have an air of familiarity but the applique and floral patterned pieces are incredibly unique. I love the blue one with the symmetric sprawling applique. I also like the nude coloured swimsuit with the…Read more

Resort 2013 : Herve Leger by Max Azria

This reosrt collection has the classic bandage dress redesigned with cut outs and bold lines creating a myriad of shapes. The colours are dark pastels which is refreshing to see. The black and white backless dress with a pink band at the waist is one I liked a lot. The bodycon dress with blue and black stripes stands out for its graphic boldness. The white dress with sheer cut-outs and navy blue sequin metallic dresses are also stunning. I liked the collection for introducing different styles in the same frame of design.    …Read more
