Spotlight on Designer Rosie Assoulin

I can’t believe I missed Rosie Assoulin in NYC Fashion Week!!

I’m loving the modern sculptural touch in her elegant, layered, tiered clothing using neutral shades and raw textures…now that was a mouthful! And evidence to how beautifully she’s compiled several elements of fashion into one single look!

Trends seen at NY Fashion Week

The NYC runway left us with a glimpse of:

  • Minimalism
  • Textured Fabric Cuts
  • Floral Patterns
  • Sequins
  • Embroidered Fabric
  • A Blast from the Past (classic looks reinvented from the 1920s to the 60s & 70s)

…although as always there were & should be exceptions to the rule.

Here are a few of my favorite things:

And that my friends, is my wrap up of NYC Fashion Week.

Had my few WOW moments on the runway. Designers Costello Tagliapietra were my absolute favorite. Hervé Léger came in close second – his designs reminded me of the movie Fifth Element! This year, NYC raised the bar!

Now looking forward to Italy, Turkey, Tokyo and India!


New York Fashion Week – Spotlight on Costello Tagliapietra

New York Fashion Week kicked off last week on February 11th with Designers showcasing their 2015 Fall Collections.

Today’s spotlight shines on Designers Costello Tagliapietra.

Nicknamed the “lumberjacks of fashion” in their debut in Vogue, Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra have also been a large part of the Brooklyn Movement.  The Wall Street Journal claimed, “they anticipated the hipster movement. They’re pioneers.”  Fashionista said, “In addition to cutting killer dresses season after season, their uniform–plaid, suspenders, and those signature grizzled beards make them the original cuddly hipsters of the fashion world.”

New York Fashion Week 2014

I am rather sad to report that after perusing through hundreds of pictures of designers and their ensemble showcased at New York Fashion Week last month, I not once experienced an AHA moment! déçu!!!! If this is what Spring is going to look like in America, then I’m not jiving it.

But…I still went through the luxury of handpicking my best moments from the ensemble delivered. Don’t hold your breath though…

Long overdue but necessary, my picks! One thing for sure – colors dominate!
