Neubyrne also walked in the Main Runway show. With an out of the box in your face esthetic reminaset of designers like Betsy Johnson and Nasty Gal Neubyrne is a label to keep your eye on. A highlight of the Nolcha shows it had the audience on their feet. With vibrant pops of hot pinks, and saturated jewel tones and plenty of tulle and the soul of a rebel this lineup was a stunner for sure.

I attended the Nolcha Shows with Elle of the Elle Diaries and after the 6 PM show there was a break before the 8:30 shows. There was time to do a little street style shooting, which I love to do. Then we had a quick bite and a glass of vino and it was back to the shows.

The first designer to show at the 8:30 shows was Yurita Puji. Yurita Puji is an Indonesian womanswear label known for highlighting traditional ikat woven fabrics. The fabrics were absolutely stunning and paired with exquisite headdresses made for quite the memorable collection, and I am sure you would agree…

The Nolcha shows this season were edgy and full of creativity, youthful vitality and show stopping pieces. The first Nolcha show I attend was Luyang by Yanglu. With a universal theme of the experience of falling in love Yanglu presented a collection that truly embraced the essence of new beginnings. With the color red featured prominently throughout the collection we can see the beating heart of this lineup. Featuring intricate folds, embroidery, printing, and hanging ribbons, all to emphasize love in its many forms.

In todays Lookbook Friday we are looking at Katie Gallagher’s presentation for SS2018. The presentation was called Rain and was quite dramatic. I am dating myself here a bit but it reminds me of when I would go to underground industrial shows back in my goth days. It was very dark—literally, too dark to take photos, however if you follow me on Instagram you can see some it that I managed to record on my phone. I also recorded it for a future vlog post so you will get to see more of the actual presentation. But until then enjoy…

I had the pleasure of attending the New School of Design’s SS2018 Presentation. There were eight emerging designers that were represented one of whom was Sentell who was a contestant on Season 16 of Project Runway.

I hope you enjoy part one of the presentation. I was even captured in one of the shots! I am wearing the palm print dress I featured a few weeks ago. You can also see how hideous my bangs are, yes girls it happened AGAIN. I will go in to that in a later post.

The photos were shot by Soo Kei and Carolina DeFritas, Gina Silva,Larglinda Ilazi, and Mina Zhou are the four designers being showcased here in this post. To learn more about the designers head to TheNewYorkSchoolofDesign

Alice & Olivia fall 2017 for lookbook friday

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - September 8, 2017

Yes Fashion Week is upon us here in NY and I am attending a number of shows this evening. But today we are looking at one of my favorite designers for Lookbook Friday, Stacey Bendet and her eponymous fashion house Alice + Olivia. With it’s distinct A+O edgy it girl mainstay, the brand is a reflection of Bendet’s own eclectic personality and her varied passions.

For fall 2017 this mindset is embraced whole-heartedly and presented to the viewer is a luscious  juxtaposition of romanticism and punk-inspired defiance. Silhouettes are long and flowing with ruffled layers, double paneled evening gowns, generous midi skirts, and wide legged trousers.

Though this romantic idealism is tempered by more street-wise influences

When skirts are short and fitted, they are paired with loosely draped capes, elongated embroidered car coats and billowing pussy bow blouses. Textures also collide in a barque-era fashion with it’s lace infused statement sleeves, exquisite patterned floral reliefs, and sumptuous fabrication.

Though this romantic idealism is tempered by more street-wise influences like the multi-colord fur bomber, the distressed dark wash uber distressed jeans and leopard print coat. Add a seventies era Halston like gown and sequined trousers and you have splendidly opulent yet contemporary collection.

A dressed up minimalism if you will

With it’s quirky left of center aesthetic and over-sized details and mixed hemmed layers this collection is a folksy collage of relaxed grace. No hard lines or body con silhouettes, but instead a vaguely old world approach to the idea of the female form. A dressed up minimalism if you will. Checks and stripes play nicely together with an occasional appearance of a tiled inspired geometric print. With it’s intentional mixing of cultures and defiant expression of the modern day woman, this is one line up is not afraid to shake up the status quo.

zaful cocktail dresses for all the best parties

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - August 28, 2017

Fall is just about here,  and of course with it comes Fashion Week and then it seems the next thing you know holiday season is upon us

Fall is just about here,  and of course with it comes Fashion Week and then it seems the next thing you know holiday season is upon us. So it is never too early to get a jump start on the season. And Zaful is a great online resource for affordable cocktail dresses.

Although fun, cocktail dress, wether a white cocktail dress or another neutral color like black, are not always the smartest investment as you do not wear them that often. I once worked with someone who literally attended eight weddings in little over a year. She was always shopping for cocktail dresses. And of course it was always the same group of friends so she did not have the luxury of wearing the same dress twice. She did rent a few dresses but that was not much cheaper.

So if you find yourself in a similar situation, with a lot of parties or weddings to attend, but don’t have the budget of say Kim Kardashian, you may want to consider Zaful. Zaful offers a wide range of fashion forward, decent quality and custom tailored cocktail dresses. I rounded up a few of my favorites. I hope you like them too and happy shopping! Plus there is a coupon!
