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.  Here 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 : Reem Acra, Tory Burch and J. Crew   Reem Acra As always, Reem Acra had a very glamorous collection fit for the red carpet.

I loved the trellis like white suit and the satin floral ones as well. My favourite was the pale grey floral dress, it looked…Read more

Fashion 2013 RTW : Reem Acra, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tory Burch

Reem Acra Inspired by Japanese embroidery, Reem Acra's collection fits well into fall but also ties in what the designer does best. The opening cocktail dress with the bright red embroidery is gorgeous. The cocktail dresses are a smash but you are left breathless with you see the sheer beaded gowns. They catch your eye and anyone with a soft spot for sparkly things (like me) is instantly happy! The finale gowns with the large tulle are gorgeous as well.   Marc by Marc Jacobs The collection feels very wearable and rather simple…Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Reem Acra

Just one word will suffice. Glamourous. The sight of glitter, sequins and shiny things makes me happy! Reem Acra's collection starts with simple and extremely well fitted skirt suits and dresses. Combinations of leather and sequins make the dress unknowingly provocative. I absolutely loved the lace high neck top paired with sequin pants. the styling there is spot on. The combination of the two doesn't clash at all. The bronze-grey suit was my favourite. The embellishments on it make it look really rich. We then descended to a 20's esque dress which is…Read more
