Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part Three

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 : The Row, Jenny Packham and Giulietta

Brilliant collections from The Row and Jenny Packham. Also on showcase is Giulietta at New York Fashion Week.     The Row There was a couture like finesse to the clothes and despite the odd shape as some might see it, it's a remarkable collection. I love how the coats maintain a nice balance of structure and movement, they look incredibly comfortable as well! The propped up collar also looks so well made! I'm loving the grey wrap coat and the deep red suit.   Jenny Packham The deep merlot colour is so…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Vera Wang, Rodarte and Jenny Packham   Vera Wang It was a very athletically inclined collection. Lightness and comfort seemed top priorities and to that effect, the sheer layered dresses were right on the mark. I love the bright yellow dress. Rodarte What a shame. It's just so ugly, tacky and distasteful. Other than a few blazers which attempt to save this collection, I find it very wasteful.

Fall 2013 RTW : Jenny Packham, Naeem Khan and Dennis Basso

With Jenny Packham, Naeem Khan and Dennis Basso in the line up for this post, these might not be the most wearable collections. Almost exclusively for red carpets, these are collection worth note though.   Jenny Packham Taylor Swift comes to mind whenever you hear of Jenny Packham, or any other celebrity for that matter. This designer has made her place and Hollywood and the clothes are equally glamorous. I love the red gowns in this collection. That particular shade of red is so intense! I love the floor length gown with the…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Jenny Packham

Now we all know what Taylor Swift will be wearing this season. I do like Jenny Packham's style and the graceful glamour aesthetic but I lot of it is done. Yes, there can never be enough shiny dresses but I hoping to see more. I did like the short dresses and the white blazer with gold accents. The yellow gown with the slit down the front is gorgeous. I was nice to see the bright gowns like the orange embellished one.                        …Read more
