My NYFW Diary

Yesterday was a busy day, Free People was shooting our February look book at 5 Beekman NY; a beautiful derelict building built in 1882. Our model Martha Hunt danced around in pastels while her face and hair was decorated in bright powder pops and coloured yarns. Next week there’ll be more photos on this so stayed tuned!

Mid afternoon we headed to the Lincoln Centre to see the Charlotte Ronson show. The crowds swamped in, Dead Weather lyrics flooded the room and the spotlight shone on the celebrities seated at the front row – Nicky Hilton, Sky Ferreira… the list goes on.

Charlotte Ronson’s collection was an array of sophistication with a spontaneously cool edge. Colours of bottle green, oatmeal, navy and deep purple collided with quirky geometric prints. It was a collection perfectly executed. Not too old, not too young but, spot on right in the middle!

Now for Fall 2012 I’m all about bottle green and oatmeal!

My NYFW Diary

I didn’t get much sleep last night at The Jane Hotel… The excitement was running through me.

At 9am after a strong red eye I headed to the Lincoln centre for the 10am BCBG show. The fashion flock were swamping in and the adrenalin was sky high. Everyone was excited to see what the show had to offer. The lights dimmed and the music started pumping, the models sashayed down the runway showing elongated shapes, beautiful colors and a great use of geometric obstruction.

After the show we hunted outside the venue for style, I spied Alexa Chung and my heart started racing. New York is fast, one blink and you’ll miss a trick! my tired feet are now resting with thoughts on what Fall 2012 fashion will become. I wonder what tomorrow will bring…

Kicking off NYFW at the IFB conference

Today I’m at the independent fashion bloggers conference (IFB) where a community of fashion bloggers share their experiences. A panel of influential blogging experts such as Bryan Boy, Cupcakes and Cashmere, DKNY PR girl and others talk about their traits and why they love what they do. As you can expect from a group of bloggers from New York City the fashion here is quite something, Neon and Jewels are definitely hot topic!

NYFW: Hair Inspiration

New York Fashion Week is over, and while I don’t really consider myself to be the most fashionable person, I still like to check out the shows online and follow some of the behind the scenes coverage on tumblr. And beyond just the fashion inspiration, I found myself saving so many photos of hair styles! I doubt I’d be able to tame my mess of hair to look like any of these but it’s still great inspiration… Read More
