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 : Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang and Rodarte

This post features a Star Wars reference, how often can you do that in a fashion post? Well, unfortunately, it's not in good taste. Here are the fall 2014 collections from Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang and Rodarte!     Badgley Mischka Such an incredible collection by the duo! Gold is back! There is so much intricate work, the gowns are stunning especially the finale one. The slinky antique gold sequin gown is gorgeous. I also liked the day pieces, leopard was incorporated tastefully. The high fur collars also add richness to the classic…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Vera Wang, Rodarte and Jenny Packham

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. Mind you, I'm not against a theme in a collection or an overly artistic one either.…Read more
Fall 2013 RTW : Rodarte, Anna Sui and Ralph Lauren

Fall 2013 RTW : Rodarte, Anna Sui and Ralph Lauren

Rodarte going dark and bright, Anna Sui's distinctive boho side persisted and Ralph Lauren showed the classic look, all at New York Fashion Week 2013. Rodarte Rodarte's collection started with a series of dark pieces, it set quite a different tone and I'm sure people were struck with the acid bright colours that came to light! That said, the separates in this collection are well designed. I love the peach coat with the white studs and the heavily embellished scarf like dress. The acid dye dresses with the embroidery on the top looked…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Rodarte

Rodarte's collection feels very raw and edgy. The chains and steel work really well with the jewel toned gowns. I'm not very keen on some of the silhouettes, they seem to draw more focus to the crotch! I think the navy gown with the gold detail is gorgeous, but again, not too happy with the placement.                                         Image Credit | Complete CollectionRead more
