New York Spring 2013 Top 5 Shows


New York was great this year. Between collections of 1960’s glamour and innovative silhouettes and prints came covetable, wearable clothes. These 5 shows I have chosen as my favorite was a hard choice considering the extremely successful collections each designer delivered. Strong trends came through right from the start and the New York Fashion Week hype buzzed around the city better then ever before!

Get Ahead Of The Trend


Ladies, it’s ‘in’ for 2013 and you have to have it! Denim has been popping up all over the Resort 2013 collections, from Proenza Schouler’s new denim line to Derek Lam’s jumpsuit. Straight leg, wide leg, skinny and even flared; you name it they have it. The hard part? Choosing!

New York Fashion Week Fall 2012 – Top 5 Shows


New York Fashion Week (NYFW) took an unexpected turn this time. Instead of the established designers taking over the spotlight, it was all about the up-and-coming (with the exception of Marc Jacobs and Alex Wang of course). From Rodarte’s Australian dream, Proenza Schouler’s collection of protection, Altuzarra’s traveling warrior, Alexander Wang’s monochrome magic and Marc Jacobs’ fantasy of reality, this week certainly delivered a wide range of variety but with an overall tough edge. Here are some of my favorite looks from my pick of NYFW’s top 5 designers:

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend Report


It’s time for the Trend Report. Here is the best of the trends you’ll be wearing for Spring/Summer 2012. This season Designers seemed to be inspired by what is happening around them, from sports wear (The London Olympics) to 1920’s glamour (the re-make of The Great Gatsby film) and everything in between. Originality and individuality also proved to be on designer’s minds from tribal wear to a 1950’s housewife, it’s time to make up your own mind.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 – Top 5 Shows


Oscar De La Renta – Mr. De La Renta really went for the wow factor this season. Opening his couture-like show with yellow, green and red ball gowns was nothing but trés allure.

Oscar De La Renta

Rodarte – With Vincent Van Gough’s painting’s splashed across the dresses in print, it created quite a fascinating colour palette. And there is nothing more glamorous than that.

Rodarte

Proenza Schouler – For Spring, the Proenza Schouler show had quite a handmade feel to it. Each look better than the next, revealing simple silhouettes and styles in a wide range of toned down colours and prints.

Proenza Schouler

Marc Jacobs – Western girls mixed with sportswear? I think I like it! Master showman Marc Jacobs did not dissappoint with his fringed edges, plastic and oversized sequined collection. So will the biggest fashion rumour come true? Will Marc Jacobs take over the helm of Dior? I certainly hope so.

Marc Jacobs

Jason Wu – At Jason Wu, it felt like the models were stepping out of a ballerina’s boudoir and into the real world. With a great use of colour from candy floss pink to lime green, Wu impressed the fashion folk with another wonderfully wearable collection.

Jason Wu

Roll on London!
