So here’s my recap of Day 2 & 3 of Fashion week so far. Fashion week so far has been so much FUN and AMAZING. I know you’ll be hearing those two words FUN and AMAZING a lot in my blogs and snapchats. But thats just what NYFW has been for me. And I can’t tell you the Fashion, Oh my Goodness– BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS, EQUISITE, just a few adjectiveS to describe the show’s I’ve been to thus far. honestly and truly, as I stated in my last blog, i’ve grown a true appreciation for the designers and their work. what goes into it, their vision and influencers to create such beautiful pieces of art. its just extraodinary and inspiring.
On Day 2 of Fashion Week I went to the Nicole Miller show and Refinery 29’s: 29 Rooms.
LEt’s begin with Nicole Miller’s show: she’s an Iconic designer whose known for her signature graphic prints and innovative sillouhette,. she holds a special place in my heart for she graduated from RISD located in my home state of rhode island. Since an early age, I’ve been such a BIG fan of ALL of her designs. Her unique style and vision, is captivating, and eye-catching. the ss16 collection shown at ny Fashion Week–we saw lot of colors and Patterns, she stayed true to her signature style while incorporating more vibrant hues and patterns. As I stated in my last blog, this seems to be the trend to hit the runways, “vibrant hues and bold patterns.” Nicole Miller’s Designs and show is exactly what you would expect for New York City. From the bright electric neon eyeshadow worn on the models, to the bold and graphic prints and graffiti patterns– it just brings us back to the gritty streets of 90’s NYC. i mean i don’t know about you but who didn’t love the 90s, and nyc in the 90s… I mean am I right?! Her show was FABULOUS and we have so much to look forward come this Spring/Summer 2016 and I know I can’t wait to rock the collection!!
Taking a break from the runway shows,, my Husband and I ventured to Brooklyn to check out Refinery 29’s : 29 Rooms. And might I say, we thorougHly enjoyed ourselves. Celebrating 10 years, Refinery 29 rented a warehouse IN BROOKLYN, hosting their very own 29 Rooms. 29 rooms that illustrated a wild, interactive fun-house highlighting various aspects of style and culture through installations, one-of-a-kind performance, virtually reality experiences, music and more. And might I say, it was quite innovative, fun and quite the experience. each room was curated by an artist of their choosing where they gave tribute to minnie mouse, “an ode to literary heroines created with Nordstrom Rack, an Old Navy DIY denim workshop, a PUMA and SIX:02 stop-motion projection project, and a mysterious “cabinet of curiosities” made with Fossil” (http://www.refinery29.com/refinery29-29rooms-fashion-week-event) thank you refinery 29 for a fun-filled evening, both my husband and I enjoyed the exhibits.
(QUYNH, ESOSA, AND SANTA CLARA GRACE)
MY HUSBAND AND I WENT TO THE LA NUIT ROSE EVENT AT THE BEAUTIFUL GOTHAM HALL. WE WATCHED THE SHOWS OF TOP DESIGNERS: QUYNH PARIS, ESOSA AND SANTA CLARA GRACE WHILE ENJOYING PREMIUM SELECTION OF ROSÉ WINES FROM BRANDS SUCH AS VIE VITÉ, AIX, TRIENNES, GÉRARD BERTRAND, BARTON & GUESTIER AND FERRARI. OVERALL, IT WAS A FUN- FILLED FASHION EVENT. THE DESIGNERS CREATIONS WERE FLOWY, STYLISH, AND FEMININE.
WE SAW A LOT OF COLOR BLOCKING AS WELL AS TEXTURE AND BOLD PATTERNS. A FUN EVENT TO EXPERIENCE FASHION WITH MY HUSBAND, I LOVE HOW HE SHOWS ME HE LOVES AND SUPPORTS MY CAREER WHEN HE COMES TO EVENTS LIKE THESE WITH ME. AND I MEAN FASHION, ROSÉ, AND GOURMENT FOOD, YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG. I MEAN THEY ALL GO SO WELL WITH EACH OTHER, AM I RIGHT…!!!
I’M A BIG FAN OF THIS DESIGNER/WOMEN, HER DESIGNER ARE SO CHIC AND BEAUTIFUL AND NOT TO MENTION WE SHARE THE SAME FILIPINO HERITAGE. AFTER SEEING HER SHOW FOR THE FIRST TIME, MIGHT I SAY THIS FILIPINA REPRESENTED. MONIQUE LHUILLIER’S COLLECTION HAD THE ESSENCE OF LUXURY WHILE ILLUSTRATING MODERN GLAMOUR AND FEMININITY. I PARTICULARLY LOVED THE HINT OF VIBRANT HUES IN HER DRESSES. THE ENTIRE COLLECTION EXUDED STYLE AND SOPHISTICATION WHICH IS WHAT BEST DESCRIBES THE DESIGER HERSELF. THE COLLECTION ILLUSTRATED A LOT OF BOLD GEOMETRIC PATTERNS, AS WELL AS VIBRANT HUES, THAT WERE ALL DEFINITELY CLASSY AND FEMININE. MY FAVORITES FROM THE COLLECTION WERE THE FLORAL AND CUTOUT PATTERN DRESSES WHERE WE SAW HOW SHE PLAYED WITH TEXTURES IN THOSE DESIGNS. I FOUND THOSE PIECES TO BE VERY ELEGANT LOOKING WHICH I LOVED AND ADMIRED. STAYING TRUE TO HER AESTHETIC, SHE CREATED A COLLECTION FILLED WITH COLORS, SHAPES, AND DETAIL THAT WAS QUITE MEMORABLE. IT WOULD BE A DREAM OF MINE TO OWN AND WEAR ONE OF THESE DESIGN– JUST BEAUTIFUL!
BANANA REPUBLIC COLLECTION SHOWED US READY TO WEAR FASHION THAT MADE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WANTED TO DRESS UP FOR WORK. LOOKING CLASSY AND STYLISH ALL AT THE SAME TIME. CREATIVE DESIGNER FOR THE BRAND: MARISSA WEBB INTRODUCED US TO A NEW STYLE AND WAY TO DRESS FOR THE OFFICE. IN AN INTERVIEW SHE STATED, “It’s about having fun and taking suiting out of that serious box,” Webb tells InStyle. “(The collection) isn’t completely different from the past because there’s still the tailored element, but it’s about styling and mixing and matching elements.” (http://www.instyle.com/news/banana-republic-spring-2016-nyfw) SHE TWO PLAYED WITH BRIGHT COLORS- ALONG WITH BOLD PATTERN STATEMENTS, STEPPING AWAY FROM THE STANDARD COLORS OF NAVY AND BLACK. WEBB TELL’S INSTYLE MAGAZINE,” “The collection is a spin-off of the heritage of Banana Republic,” Webb explains. “It’s making it relevant and modern, taking hints from travel—Morocco and Marrakesh—with colors, patterns and textures.” ( “http://www.instyle.com/news/banana-republic-spring-2016-nyfw) FROM START TO FINISH, THE COLLECTION WAS CREATED IN NYC AND HOLDS TO TRUE TO THE NYC VIBE DESPITE THE GLOBAL INFLUENCE. I CAN’T WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON SOME THESE PIECES, AND ROCK THEM AT THE OFFICE!!
