NYFW—Deola A/W’14


Hola!  Across the pond in London fashion week has begun yet I am still giving you New York goodness here, so continue to read on.  I had the honor of attending the Deola A/W ’14 presentation during NYFW and it didn’t disappoint.  The Nigerian designer’s collection was a mixture of chic and whimsical.  I see that she pulled a bit from her heritage by using big bold prints and details.  My fave is the last dress with Nelson Mandela on it—fab!  Let me know your thoughts.

This is Major: IMG Says Many Bloggers Will Not Be Invited to Fashion Week Next Season


Hola peeps! Things that make you go hummmm. I get where they are coming from but aren’t bloggers a part of the next generation of getting the fashion news out there quickly? What your are thoughts? Sound off!

StyleCaster

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.

“Fashion Week was becoming a zoo,” Bennett told them. “What used to be a platform for established designers to debut their collections to select media and buyers has developed into a cluttered, often cost-prohibitive and exhausting period for our industry to effectively do business,” according to a press release.

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!
