Finally getting to share some of my street style snaps from NYFW. I didn’t shoot as much street style in New York as I did in Paris as I shot more of the shows themselves and I was working, but I did manage snap a few pix, I hope to shoot more next season if it is not too cold.
I shot most of these photos outside the shows I attended. You will see a few familiar faces Elle from The Elle Diaries and Catt Sadler of E News!. I find I really enjoy shooting street style and shooting in general. And I am looking to start a separate photography website and even have a named picked out which I will share with you some time in the future. Though I can fill you in a bit, the name is the French version of “I flaunt”. I like the would flaunt or flaunting, but it is already in use as there is a Flaunt magazine. So I went with the French version. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my snaps and there is still plenty more to come from Paris Fashion Week so stay tuned.
Things have slowed down a bit, Fashion Week is over and I have a lot more time on my hands now as I was laid off. The upside is I have more time to work on the blog, my newly launched You Tube channel along with learning more about video editing and photography. And I am finally getting to share with you one of the looks I wore for NYFW.
This whole look is fairly low budget. The bomber jacket and ankle boots are from Zara, the tulle jumper is from Forever 21, and the jeans are from H&M. The bag I got on sale at a store called Foxes and is from BCBG. The most expensive thing was the haircut—almost $200. I did not get what I asked for and in no way is this a $200 haircut. I will never spend that much on a cut again. The highlights are nice though. Only paid $100 for them at a walk in salon in Bayridge Brooklyn called Hair Culture. Oh well live and learn.

Happy Fashion week everyone. It has now ended here in New York and is on it’s way to London, Paris and Milan. I will be headed to Paris for Fashion Week so will be quite busy. My coverage of NYFW will be steady but a bit slow due to my hectic schedule. Here is a teaser of some Fashion week street style. I shot this outside the Rebecca Minkoff store in Soho after the show. Stay tuned for my video coverage of NYFW. My first attempt at covering NYFW via video and I am excited to share it with you.
At one point Nicole and I were nearly trampled by security, police and paparazzi as unbeknownst to us,we were leaning against the van that was waiting to escort Jessica Alba from the show. Whooeee that was fun!
I am currently in Paris and although Miguel Vieira did not show in Paris his collection for SS2018 does have a bit of a Parisian feel. Sticking to his palette of black, white and gray you will also the occasion pale pink like the men’s cropped blazer with it’s floral patch detail, or the pop of red in the same detail that also appears on men’s tees and button downs and women’s pull-overs. But the real star of the show was the texture and the varied finishes. A cracked patten showed up through out the collection appearing on dresses, tops and jackets. With a strong emphasis on tactile elements the silhouette also took center stage with high-low hems, militaristic cap sleeves and cinched waists. A sophisticated sense of edginess, this collection is a sumptuously minimalist homage to the urban dweller.

Katty Xiomara’s collection for SS2018 is color saturated breath of fresh air. With an under lying sporty edge and street style sensibility this collection is an approachable, breezy expression of easy chic. The models marched down the runway to frenzied rock music ending with a remake of the Nirvana’s classic “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, Katty Xiomara’s lineup for Spring Summer 2018 is a rebellious romp of unbridled audacious joy.

The main runway show for Nolcha closed with Chasity Sereal an evening wear and non traditional bridal collection. Known for creating statement making gowns for black tie events, weddings and proms Chasity Sereal is based in Houston Texas and has quite the devoted following. Starting with a tutu prom dress Chasity Sereal has grown in to a sophisticated brand that is sure to leave it’s mark on quite a crowed stage.
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…
