New York Fashion Week Favorites (Day One)
I am SO excited about the September and October months because as we, sartorial slaves, all know, these are THE months for Fashion Weeks. For four weeks, four of the fashion capitals of the world (namely Paris, Milan, London and New York) will be showcasing The Spring/Summer 2013 Collections of our favorite luxury designers. New York Fashion Week (otherwise known as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week) however, was held last week (London is ongoing as I type this, next week is Milan then, last but DEFINITELY not least, Paris) and let me tell you this: THEY OPENED PRETTY DARN WELL THAT I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE NEXT FASHION WEEKS! Let me show you my favorite designs and designers from NYFW:
Note: As much as I want to say that I went, sadly, I didn’t because, well, I can’t afford to go and I’m not invited (LOL!). I got the photos from the official website of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and Style.com
Nicholas K by Nicholas and Christopher Kunz
Their collection was mainly composed of anoraks mixed with silk-satin but I must say that my favorites were the knitted cover-ups. They look so comfy and laidback.
BCBGMAXAZRIA by Max and Lubov Azria
I love the harness details mixed with soft elements such as lace and chiffon and they’re mostly in black and white (there were colors too, though) which make them very classy and timeless.
Kaelen by Kaelen Haworth
I think her collection is stunning! She has utilized current trends such as neon yellow, black and white prints, and peplum cuts. Looks very wearable, too. Plus, SHOULDER PADS!
Richard Chai Love by Richard Chai
Variety and range were definitely present in Richard Chai’s collection. There were lamé, sequins, sheer nylon, digital floral prints and others but my favorite were the uncomplicated ones (WHAT?? THIS MUST BE A MIRACLE!). For some reason, they captured my attention more.
His collection is the most Red Carpet ready, on the first day, at least! Upon research, I’ve learned that he used elements he saw during his travels as his inspiration; a table cloth in a Market in Pasadena, Weather from the West coast, caves in Donhuang and many others.
Her collection’s aesthetic focuses on street style. While I may not be able to pull the street look off, some of her clothes I would wear on a whim. Like her printed pants and party dresses.

I know, I know, I practically photobombed your dashboards but I’m not even half sorry. I’m just so excited about Fashion Week so I can’t help but post the photos of the really great ones, and THAT is just DAY ONE! You can unfollow me anytime if you think it’s too much to bear, though. LOL!
