  • BCBGMaxAzria Fall 2013 Runway Review and Fashion Show Trends


    BCBGMaxAzria Fall 2013 Runway Review: A hard rock gypsy walked the runway of the BCBGMaxAzria Fall 2013 show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. I have a strong feeling the boho gypsy vibe will carry a large presence for Fall 2013, and BCBG keeps a tough edge to the overall look with quilted leather, colorblocked fur, and sexy leather boot/leggings.  The softness of our gypsy girl is seen in delicate laser cut-outs and off-whites with large scale embroideries. >> MORE: FASHION…

  • Libertine Spring 2013 A Fun Mix Of Ethereal and Wild


    Libertine Spring 2013 Runway Review: The Spring 2013 Libertine collection was a like stepping through the looking glass into a colorful world of smashed kalidescopes and coming out covered in fairy dust!  A fun mix of ethereal and funky, vintage boudoir and quirky, tame and wild.  I think this may cater more to our Western edge girls over the East Coast black-out brigade, but I say work these colors wherever you can, because it truly makes fashion fun! >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS  There…

    Anna Sui Spring 2013 Runway Review:  The most darling, goth girls rocked down the runway to a Ramones soundtrack at Anna Sui’s Spring 2013 show, reminding us that rock n’ roll will never die and it can indeed be pretty.  Very pretty.
