The past two days have been a blur with flurries and much slush brought on by storm Nemo. Of course, that didn’t stop fashion week from continuing! It was amusing to see the permanent snowplow on site circling the Lincoln Fountain, getting rid of any snow to allow those braving heels to get to their shows safely.

It brought out the best furs, headpieces and most fashionable outerwear I’ve ever seen under one roof. My hat certainly saved me from having an awful hair day!

We started off our day with watching one of the biggest shows I’ve seen so far by Rebecca Minkoff. It was an incredible experience, and part of the excitement was seeing the room fill up and figuring out who was in the room with all the paparazzi frenzy. Rebecca Minkoff’s show brought out the likes of Ashlee Simpson, Nicky Hilton and Jamie King and the top bloggers including Bryan Grey Yambao (Bryan Boy), Rumi Neely (Fashion Toast), Kelly Framel (The Glamourai) and Leandra Medine (Man Repeller) were also amongst the front row. The show kicked off with a live band and seeing the models sashaying their way down the runway was exhilarating! The pops of neon seen on coats and dresses throughout the collection were uber refreshing. We have so much to look forward to this fall season!

Following the show, we edged our way to the front and found ourselves within earshot distance of Bryan and Rumi, and this happened. Still so happy that we had a chance to meet them in person!



Later that night, I came back to the Lincoln Centre to see Charlotte Ronson’s Fall/Winter Presentation in the Studio.  Her collection was made up of many different prints with a very earthy and natural feel. Definitely wearable and can see myself in some pieces this coming September!

Finally, the last show I’ve seen was by Alon Livne, a talented young fashion designer from the Middle East, showcasing the eight season of his line. It was really interesting to learn that he had trained at Alexander McQueen and was also appointed to the eveningwear and couture division of Roberto Cavalli. You can definitely feel the other designer’s presence in his work.


This collection in particular was one of the best that I’ve been able to see so far this season. Inspired by the concept of a beautifully bleak post-apocalyptic world, his models were figures transformed through crystallization (featuring Swarovski Elements) whom are now frozen jewels imprisoned in a world hung between day and night. You can also see how challenging it was for the models to hold their still poses for the duration of the show; kudos to them!
