  • NY Fashion Week: Thuy fashion show review


    Thuy- Fall 2009 Collection, video below… Fashion is not always taken at face value. Sometimes you need to give it a bit of time and understand that taste is very subjective. I’m more of a realist than trendy fabulousista when it comes to flattering silhouettes. Ok, I won’t lie, my first impression of this collection was not a good one, but by the end of the show I acknowledged it means absolutely nothing if I personally don’t like it, but…

  • NY Fashion Week: Miss Sixty fashion show review

    MISS SIXTY FW09 New York 02-15-09

    Miss Sixty | Runway Fall 2009 Collection-Mercedes Benz Fashion Week… Rock ‘n roll heavily weighted with an 80’s and punk feel set the tone for Miss Sixty.

  • NY Fashion Week: Alvin Valley fashion show review


    The words structured and romantic do sound like they belong in the same sentence, but Alvin Valley has changed that perception with a collection of supremely feminine dressing that is not only well tailored but involves pieced seams and cut outs. The black brocade fabric is something you may ordinarily see on a chair at your grandmother’s house, but it took on a whole new look at well fit pants and jumpsuits. Skirts and blouses had an overwhelming array of…

  • NY Fashion Week: Shelly Steffee fashion show review


    Shelly Steffee – Fall 2009 fashion collection… A great mix of fabric textures and beautiful tailoring made for an impressive collection with a futuristic / equestrian feel. Well placed cut-outs to show off a woman’s decoltage, a beautifully draped jersey dress with braided fabric woven within the sweeping cowl, very well fit felt jacket with pleated latex shoulders and of course the of-the-moment peg shaped pant looking wearable on the mannequin – too bad that silhouette can be difficult for…
