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.

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

Fashion 2013 RTW : J. Crew, Badgley Mischka and Vera Wang

J. Crew brings Morrocan culture into a sleek collection, Badgley Mischka owns the red carpet dresses and Vera Wang gets more feminine and plays with volume. These three at New York Fashion Week have diverse but coveted collections. J. Crew This collection has very clean cut separates in staple fall colours such as burgundy, navy, plums and also soft pinks. I love the embellished blue shirt with the blue and orange floral shorts. The intricate design work in the pieces is beautiful. J. Crew has really stepped it up this time.   Badgley…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Vera Wang

Vera Wang's collection is truly elegant. I love the colours as well. The lime green pencil dresses look great. I like the half solid, half sheer lace skirts. The finale dress with the sheer lace looks immaculate. The blue dress with the solid colour peplum looks very edgy. It's a nice change to the otherwise very feminine styles.                                                     Image Credit | Complete CollectionRead more
