Yes, I am HERE and reporting LIVE from the epicenter of fashion: New York City and the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week! This event, which runs from February 6-13, is held at Lincoln Center. Some of the biggest names in fashion will show their Fall/Winter 2014 collections.
In this two-part #NYFW series, I’ll highlight not only the runway trends of the “big” players we all know in fashion, but also on the street style, new designers embracing sustainability, and the fresh details that make this event a whirlwind of “seen and be seen” photo ops!
The ever talented David Ryan Smith makes an appearance at #NYFW!
It’s not like we’re all going to be wearing Duckie Brown neon green pants anytime soon, but it’s always fun taking a walk on fashion’s wild side!
For now, less talk and let’s revel in the eye-candy and links to some of the designers making the kickoff a blast!
Dedicated to sophisticated luxury, with divine gowns worn by A-list celebrities, this is a line worth daydreaming about wearing.
Kate Moss + McQueen = fashion legends creating some imagery bound to have the fashionistas talking! McQueen’s iconic shapes and forms live on and it’s easy to see why, he was a mastermind of not only couture but fitting the female form in an almost mythological way. Every runway show I’ve had the pleasure of attending has been a cinematographic feast!
BCBG: YES it’s an ORANGE jumpsuit making headlines! When actress Samira Wiley showed up at the runway show last night, tongues went wagging and photos were taken, all touting, “Orange is the NEW Black!” Well, we can’t be sure if it has staying power, but we do know, BCBG does, and judging by its new pieces, that’s not changing anytime soon!
Stay tuned for Part 2 LIVE from #NYFW as I do some fun shopping of my own, talk with talented fashion designers with a focus on sustainability and show you some Goodwill Insider ways to make NYFW looks your own without the killer price tags!
Also, keep an eye for me on Twitter @PlanetBrandee #GWInsider as I take you to the streets of Lincoln Center for pictures of fashionistas on the scene and on the town!
Till next time, see you on the runway!
