Mieka Joi of Rich Girl Candy & Project Runways Samantha Black SS16 Runway Show

Designer Mieka Joi of Rich Girl Candy and Project Runways Samantha Black had a fashion show last night. Overall, the night was filled with a hand full of celebrity and friends, as well as fashion, of course. Fashion was just not on the runway, but everyone that attended the event was fashionably in style. Even the venue gave the show a more stylist look.

Heart & Noble SS16 Presentation

My last day of fashion week ended with a few designers. Amongst the few was, Heart & Noble. How many of you guys remember as a kid when you would create small images with beads and iron them to stay together. Well, Heart and Noble is the adult version. I must say, I like the adult version of the iron beat art. Especially, when you are greeted with an option of spiked coffee or vodka lemonade, and a yummy dairy-free/gluten-free frozen dessert from “ByBreanne.”

After speaking with the designer, Cri Gabriele, she stated that her collection this season was inspired by New Yorkers wanting to be fashionable, yet comfortable. That seems to be a thing that a lot of designers this season are seeking, “comfortability.” Well, Cri has definitely found the median between comfortable and fashionable.

Be sure to check out more of Heart & Noble collection at www.HeartandNoble.com. You can also find some more of ByBeanne tasty desserts at www.ByBeanne.com.Cri-quitvDSCN9876 DSCN9872 DSCN9868 DSCN9889 DSCN9885 DSCN9883 DSCN9876DSCN9897 DSCN9895DSCN9899

CARRIE HAMMER: #RoleModelsNotRunwayModels Fashion Show

I must say, this was one of the best shows I have been to in all the years I have been covering New York Fashion Week. Carrie Hammer did a great job with putting on a show that not only showed off her collection but inspired others to strive and make it to the top. Instead of having your typical models walk the runway, Carrie was innovative with having leading women in their careers strut their stuff not only showing off Carrie Hammer’s collection, but flaunting their job titles and accomplishment along with it. This show has sincerely inspired me to keep working hard to make it to that executive level that I am destine to be in, and purchase some of those jackets (What?!?, Those jackets were HOT!). See what I am talking about below.

Fashion Group International (FGI) Trend Overview

Today, November 14, 2012, Fashion Group International had a trend overview presentation and panel discussion of the Spring/Summer 2013 RTW collections. This presentation included shows from New York, London, Milan, and Paris! The discussion panel included Mickey Boardman, Editorial Director of Paper Magazine, Christina Binkley, Style Columnist of The Wall Street Journal, Ikram Goldman of ikram ,Chicago, Brooke Jaffe,  Accessories Fashion Director of Bloomingdale’s, and Jane Larkworthy, Beauty Director of W. With special guest moderator, Sally Singer.

The FGI trend presentation video flourished the accumulated most seen styles of the RTW collections for Spring/Summer 2013. The overall assumption is that SS13 is a memory of the 60s. Many of these collections included inspirations from Mode 60s, Neo-Geo 60s, Mondrian/Yves 60s, Hipsters 60s, Hippy 60s, and Madonna of  the 80s.

The panelist had a lot to say about the collections that were viewed.Paper Magazine’s Editorial Director, Mickey Boardman stated that he loves attending women shows opposed to men shows, because he loves to be entertained. He feels men shows are boring.  Menswear have such a minimal amount of things to play with. Whereas, women clothing can be played with to the fullest.

“We’re remembered for the things that we did that were hard, not the things that we did that were easy”; said by Mickey during the panel discussion.

Brook Jaffe predicts that the white shoe will replace the nude shoe for the spring and summer season.

” When something new is cold to a designer, it will be cold to an editor. When it is cold to an editor, it will be cold on the rack. If it is cold on the rack, it will not leave the store!”

This quote was said by Sally Singer before the end of the panel discussion. I entirely believe in this quote. If a design is not loved or cared by a designer, he will not put hiss all into it and eventually show on the runway and sales.

A complete version of the FGI trend presentation is available on DVD and DVD-data.
