NYFW My Style Look #1

By Posted on 1 min read 1425 views
Whew busy with my NYFW vlogs but now I am finally able to share with you my first look for NYFW. This fashion week I only wore one brand new item: a hat I bought on sale at Zara. Everything else this season I either thrifted or shopped my closet. For this look I wore sunnies from Bottega Veneta which I picked up at sample sale at a former job. The scarf I bought so long ago I can not recall where I got it, and the sixties style patent bomber I got at Zara about four years ago; I wore it on my very first trip to Paris, so needles to say it holds fond memories for me. The skirt was thrifted at Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn and the boots I bought about six years ago are from Cole Haan…

As promised is part two of NYFW. In this vlog I cover the remaining shows I went to as well as BTS at Flying Solo and the CADA collective and I also interviewed some more of the designers who walked this Fashion Week for Flying Solo. The last day I spent shooting street style and interviewing the well dressed attendees outside the shows so you will get see some of the great fashion on streets and not just on the runway. See you next season![/dropcap

NYFW Fall 2020 Vlog Part One

By Posted on 1 min read 1980 views

Here is part one of my NYFW Fall 2020 vlog. I decided to post the my NYFW coverage in two parts. In this video which is about twenty minutes long, covers the first couple of days. Personally, I prefer longer videos as when I am on YouTube I like to settle in and not have to keep searching for something to watch every ten minutes. But an hour is a bit long and I did’t want my computer to start smoking when I exported the video. At any rate, I take you to the shows at Spring Studios and Pier 59 as well as what I got up to between the shows. And stayed tuned for Part two coming next week.

Luooif Studios @NYFW Fall 2020

First it was the eighties, then is was dad sneakers, now it’s dressing up like an eighties dad, that is if you were still seven years old. The collection for Luooif Studios has been affectionately called “The wild dads’s wardrobe” by the brand’s designers Lena Luo and Ekcee Chan. Think oversized, broad shoulders and slightly off kilter, though there are more then enough feminine frilly pieces to go around, and played to the softer side of the lineup.

Flying Solo RTW & Couture @NYFW Fall 2020

I once again had the extreme pleasure of attending the Flying Solo shows for NYFW. I attended both the ready-to-wear and couture shows and was duly impressed by both presentations. In an age of a disruptive industry, what some are referring to the retail apocalypse and the rise of online streaming, and very crowded and competitive space Flying Solo seeks to unite fashion, support up and coming designers and pay homage to the city that has always been at the heart of fashion. Tom Ford may have snubbed his nose at New York, and other well known brands my only show overseas but Flying Solo is committed to the New York fashion scene and to that end plans on opening two additional locations in addition to their recently expanded store front on West Broadway in Soho.
