nyfw day 1: a few of my favorite things...

|
By Roberta Correia · September 9, 2010

If day 1 of Fashion Week was any indication of what we'll be seeing all week - we're in for another season of fabulous neutrals. Minimalism is all over Spring/Summer 2011, and I personally couldn't be happier. Shades of white and beige were all over the collections of Organic by John Patrick (I would wear this whole collection all day, every day), Sachin and Babi for Ankasa and Williow. Neutrals came in the form of very very wide legged pants (Katherine Hepburn style), trench coats, white suits and even some in summer leather.

Unofficial day 1 got the week off to a good start...

FNO: The Show

I'm guessing I wasn't the only one glued to cbs.com (and Andre Leon Talley's incessant babbling) last night circa 7pm was I? Fashion's Night Out is still a couple of days away but last night's Fashion's Night Out fashion show really got us in the NYFW/FNO mood. The absurdly over the top / dramatic/ mega spectacle was tauted the "biggest fashion show of all time" and it didn't disappoint. Gisele, Alessandra, Adriana, Karolina, Natalia, Coco, Chanel, Dree, Naomi etc, etc...basically every working model out there got off that double decker bus to strut her stuff on the circular runway.


What followed was an opulent and fabulous collection of every awe inspiring look from the FW2010 runways. Hoping to inspire a lot of FNO shopping Vogue editors and stylists Tabitha Simmons and Edward Enninful put together a showcase of the season's top trends according to Vogue. The show worked in 9 themes, in between the Opening Act and Grand Finale were Fifties Flair, Tartan Twist, Pure At Heart, Weekend Wrap-Up, Rock Chic, Go Global and Jazz Age Cool.

PS - I've settled on nomadic chic for my fall look - appropriate I think.

 

Fashion's Night Out: AKA Mass Hysteria on the streets of NYC...

By Roberta Correia · September 11, 2009

I have no words for the chaos created by Fashion's Night Out in the streets of NYC, and I mean in that in the most amazingly fantastic of ways possible...

Mass crowds taking to the streets, no signs of cabs anywhere (it wasn't even Halloween) shopping, drinking, mini beers and free ice cream... what better way to bring shoppers, and bloggers alike, back to stores. In the words of Serena van der Woodsen (or Blake Lively if you live in that little world called reality) "It was like Halloween for fashionites"...

And of course the fact that those roaming streets were non other than celebrities, designers and models didn't hurt...
