NEW YORK! CONCRETE JUNGLE WHERE DREAMS ARE MADE OF! NEW YORK!
Hello lovelies! Just a round up of my favourite shows from New York Fashion Week. Next week, we will have the summary on London Fashion Week! Fashion month is here and I AM SO EXCITED! Enjoy xxx SWRF
ZAC POSEN- I have been a fan of Zac Posen since I was fourteen. His shows are usually composed of magnificent gowns that are all intended to be red carpet ready. However, this show was more than red carpet ready, it was red carpet and business ready. There were so many versatile pieces; jersey dresses, skinny pants, cardigans, sweaters, sequinned skirts and cashmere coats. Surprisingly, Posen only designed one ball gown for his show. And it ended the show with a bang! Check out the full collection on Style.com
MARCHESA– To sum up this show in one word, it was all very Gatsby. The 20s influence was felt within the models’ hair and the sequinned, fringed gowns. Furthermore, details included scandalous sheer bits, pleated tulle, embroidery and 3D florals, a Marchesa signature. Overall, the details in this collection was decadent and very sexy.

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG– DIANE IS GETTING SEXY. The collection was variations of her iconic wrap dress with a few jumpsuits and long slip dresses. My favourite piece had to be the polka-dot shirtdress with the label’s signature lip print on the sleeves. To sum it up, in the words of DVF, “It was all about seduction.” View more of the fabulous and sensual collection here.
OSCAR DE LA RENTA– This was the big show of New York Fashion Week. Peter Copping, Oscar de la Renta’s handpicked successor, made his runway debut. It was a bittersweet yet exciting moment. With just three months to put together this F/W 15 collection, Copping did a fine job at honouring the late Oscar de la Renta with the detailed embroidery, lace bodices and ball gowns. Surprisingly, the show closed with a short dress, a first for an Oscar de la Renta runway show, symbolising a new era for the fashion house. View the collection here.
MICHAEL KORS– I AM IN LOVE. Michael Kors totally brought it. From the mink coats to the neatly tailed pieces with feather-like embroidery, it was all just fabulous. There was something very romantic and vintage about this collection. As said by Marigay McKee from Saks Fifth Avenue, “It was Hollywood Glam with a Downtown Abbey twist.” It was very cinematic and I wanted to see more. View the full insane collection here.
