How is everyone's September so far? Back to school, back to work, and Fashion Week (NYFW)! I do apologize for the late post, going to shows, work, and also starting school was very interesting last week to say the least but exciting! Enough about me let's get to the shows, I have attended so far!
Show #1: Tia Cibani
Inspired by 1970s exoticism and North African craft, Tia Chibani's Spring/Summer 15 collection has enigmatic allure and earthy femininity. Spice colors of Saffron, Anise, and Cayenne meld into one another seamlessly, whole Indigo and Sesame are combing into dip dye effects of various depths and techniques. I really dug the title of her collection: Mabrouka: celebrate, abundant, blessed.
Show #2: Nelson Tavarez
Next I headed up to 60th and Lex to view the 4th collection of newcomer Nelson Tavarez. His 43 piece collection was inspired by the modern industrial architecture; which created 15 looks. I loved how he combined different textures and synthetics: techno stretch nylon, silk georgette, Matte Jersey, power mesh, cotton tulle and fishnet mesh. Intricate tailoring, sexy and refined silhouettes offering a gamut of new shapes and styles in shades of black.
Show #3: Jay Godfrey
The next day was pretty busy, getting a last minute invite made me rush to Jay Godfrey showing at the early to get a few snaps. Guests were treated to live music performed live Idgy Dean. All the models moved slowly while changing poses to fit in with the theme of the show.Western Boho was the theme, there was plenty of hay but a lot of style to be had! That fringe jacket though!
Show #4: Meden
I always believe in supporting another collegue's events. So when Megan from Belles and Rebelles email's me about coming to see a new collection she consulted for, I couldn't say no! After the brief visit at Jay Godfrey at the Hudson hotel and with the help from Uber, I made it on time to catch Meden's show. Meden’s spring collection was inspired by both fine and mechanical art. It featured an array of dresses in laser-cut leather appliqués in a pretty range of ocean and sunset hues.
Show #5: Desigual
After sunbathing in sunset hues at Meden, I headed back to Lincoln Center to catch the latest from Desigual. I was happy to get a seat to the show and get transported to Latin America! The collection was vibrant, colorful, and full of life. The collection can really be described in one world=FUN. And yes that is Adriana Lima on the left, I managed to get a decent picture of her, everytime she walked, there was someone blocking my way, go figure.
That is the first round up of the shows I have attended so far! While rushing to shows at Lincoln Center, I was one of the fortunate to get photographed, so flattered!
Next post will be part 2 and a dedicated post to the events I have attended this fashion week. I want to give a special thanks to all the public relations pros who sent me invites to shows and events, I am truly grateful.
