hi everyone! sorry for the lack of posting this past week! NY has been pretty crazy since Fashion Week took over. i have so many pics to share with you from the Lucky FABB conference to WGACA's intimate presentation at the Soho Grand Hotel, but until i can organize and edit those photos, let's examine NYFW thus far.
today's post is a runway recap of the designers that have shown already (part 1). my favorite designers, my favorite looks, the top trends i'm seeing on the runways so far. enjoy xo
PRABAL GURUNG- prob my favorite of the shows thus far. sick.
CUSHNIE et OCHS- another favorite show of mine. super feminine structure with a serious edge. the neck cutouts are insane. major trend alert. you are going to be seeing this in a few other shows for Spring 2012. oh, and there's the yellow again.
DONNA KARAN- maybe if i do a rain dance one of these outfits will appear in my closet so i can pretend to be a tribal princess. wow. i would wear any of these. totally different than what i'm seeing on the other runways and i love it. definitely a favorite show of mine so far this NYFW.
HELMUT LANG- god i love this line so much. that is all.
JENNI KAYNE- classic tailoring done right. i would wear all 3 of these looks.
JILL STUART- colorblocking is still going strong.
NICHOLAS K- edgy and easy to wear. this show is totally my style.
RACHEL ROY- i have my own pics from this presentation to share with you, but since everyone was bumping into eachother to get a clear shot, most of my pics have random strangers heads, hands and other body parts protruding into my pictures. anyhoo, all the models were wearing sick nude sandals- Rachel Roy has amazing accessories. there was a ton of drapey suiting, oriental inspired floral pieces and the last gown was totally draped and featured a darker color teal on the entire back side, it was to die for. the collection was incredibly beautiful and really wearable. hats off to RR. praying that she rips off her own collection for her less expensive line.
RACHEL ZOE- superstar. would wear everything. can't wait for it to hit stores.
REBECCA MINKOFF- handbag queen turned clothing goddess. she just knows what she's doing. edgy clothes with a youthful spirit. love the orange again (charcoal/orange is a fav color combo of mine), and you all know how i feel about crop tops.
so there you have it! part 1 of my runway recap. if a designer showed already and they aren't in this post, then i just wasn't that impressed. sorry? (with the exception of WGACA which I love- they did a special presentation that was not at Lincoln Center and so that will be in a later post).
what do you guys think of the Spring 2012 trends??
-colors: burnt orange & yellow
-matching prints for suiting
- neck cutouts
