Here's some news that may not surprise but probably does delight actual fashion editors and buyers: Catherine Bennett, senior vice president and managing director for IMG (the company that heads up Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week), recently gave an interview to the Wall Street Journal in which she revealed that as of next season, many of the surplus fashion bloggers currently being invited to shows will not be invited to return.

Hola! Nolcha Fashion Week was just as fab as ever and one of my favorite designers was Maita Marimo. The 29 year old hails from Zimbabwe where she attended school for interior design but eventually became a self-taught fashion designer. In 2012 she was voted Zimbabwe’s Fashion Week Designer of the year. Maita describes her signature style as “Classic chic with a modern edge”. Her collection is most definitely a representation of that with intricate details like lace, ruffles and pleats. Take a peek and enjoy!

Hola peeps! No matter how much I miss being on vacation, I truly missed blogging and you guys! Well, enough on that later because New York Fashion Week is here! First up is one of my fave designers—Rebecca Minkoff. Let’s dive right in shall we!
The show was very vibrant and festive just like the clothing that came down the runway. There was a huge nod to latin culture with embroidery, lace and eyelet details. The models wore their hair in milkmaid braids which reminded me of Freida Kahlo.
The juxtaposition of soft fabrics and sporty silhouettes were perfect. This yellow lace skirt with the mesh baseball/bomber style jacket is right up my alley! The accessories were fab as well—especially the tasselled pumps and cutout lace-up sandals.
Watch the complete show below and enjoy the funky sounds of singer Janelle Monàe. Enjoy!
Hola! Yes NYFW has ended but I have plenty of reviews in store for you. First up is the fun and innovative line—William Okpo. The designers are super cool sisters Darlene and Lizzie. This was not a traditional fashion show but a presentation in which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The F/W 2013 collection had muted colors filled with lots of patterns and textures. It was a mixture of lady-like preppy with button shirts and pencil skirts to casual and sporty with varsity style jackets. My fave piece was the uber-luxe fur jacket (not sure if it is faux) shown in the first pic. The makeup was fairly simple with thick dark brows and red pouty lips. I loved that big messy buns ruled the hair for the night!
This line is young and fun…perfect for hipsters! What are your thoughts? Do tell.
Hola! People think that NY’ers go hard, please the fashion crowd goes harder! Even Nemo the Blizzard couldn’t stop day 3 of NYFW from going down. One of my fave designers–Mara Hoffman showed today. She never misses the mark, as I want every piece that came down the runway. You can always expect her collection to be fun and filled with colorful ethnic prints and patterns. Hoffman states– ”I wanted to embrace what we do best with this collection and give our girls what they love most – color, print and wearable yet unique silhouettes.” She definitely achieved that, don’t you agree? Enjoy the show!
Hola! Today is the 2nd day of NYFW and my fave show today was Rebecca Minkoff **no shocker here**. If you follow this site then you know that I am a big fan of RM and this collection did not disappoint. Chunky knits, bright colors, prints, and wild patterns ruled the runway! I also love that she also had a live band which kept the mood upbeat and moving. Take a peek and let me know your thoughts. Enjoy!
Hola! Yesterday New York Fashion Week started off with a bang! One of my fave shows was BCBG, tons of inspiration for Fall 2013 as well as items that can be worn in the blustery winter weather now. Layers were in abundance-sweaters over dresses over pants and more! Fur, leather and beanies all took center stage as well. The juxtaposition of it all works and I am loving it!
Max Azria‘s design team use of prints paired with the right colors and textures brings the clothing to life. This collection shows you exactly how to get more wear out of your summer items in the midst of winter. It makes me want to take a risk by pairing my summer frock and leather pants. Take a peek at the show and share your thoughts.
As usual stay tuned right here as I will continue to bring you coverage of my fave shows. You can also tune into the live stream here as well. Happy Fashion Week!
