The last designer to walk in the main show was Lavanya Coodly. Coming from the world of science, Lavanya Coodly followed her heart, moving in to the world of fashion as a second career. Always passion about fashion and mostly self taught, and after decades of learning from experienced pattern makers, tailors and embroiders Lavanya Coodly founded her own line in 2013.

Creating clothes for all facets of women’s life: work, evening, casual, Lavanya designs clothing for the full breadth of a woman’s life. The label has recently has taken on menswear, as well as clothing for children. And with the fall collection you will indeed find something for almost any occasion.  From suit dresses for work, to smart linen slacks, to cocktail dresses and black tie gowns this lineup covers it all. Although evening wear is where Lavanya Coodly really shines. And a stand our for me has to be the glittering white evening dress. Such a stunner.

ALLIE NYC & Street Style at NYFW

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - October 3, 2016

One of the best parts about fashion week is the street style. I love seeing the looks so many of my fellow fashionista’s put together

One of the best parts about fashion week is the street style. I love seeing the looks so many of my fellow fashionista’s put together. And one of my favorite past times is looking at street style online. So today I am proud to say, I will be sharing some snaps of street style that I myself shot.

I had time to kill between shows for Nolcha, and after strolling outside for a bit and using the rest room, I spied a spot on a bench inside Art Beam and decided to give my tootsies a much needed break from the heels I was sporting. Luckily for me I sat next to quite the fashionable young woman. And the first thing I noticed, was her Fendi bag. It was yellow and had a floral embellished strap.

It was just like the gorgeous Fendi bag I had seen in a magazine except that the one I liked was bigger and burgundy, and had a studded strap and a ruffle detail. I knew her bag was a Fendi, but I inquired on it anyway; of course she confirmed that yes indeed, it was a Fendi. This broke the ice, and the next thing I knew I found myself asking her if she wouldn’t mind posing for photos, and needless to say she was all for it.

She really was the picture of fashion itself

Wearing the perfect ensemble of a sateen floral dress, metallic kitten pumps and according to WhoWhatWear, kitten pumps are having a moment. And her stand out Fendi bag. She really was the picture of fashion itself. And you may have noticed her in the post on Cashmere Song, who she was there to see, as she congratulated the designer Song Hong with a bouquet of flowers.

And yes, she did give me her contact info, and yes I did indeed put said info in to my phone, but thanks to the Google app importing every contact in to my new phone—which I know sounds like a good thing. But not when every contact is every person I have ever emailed. Well you can just imagine. Now I can not find her info. I should of put her information in notes, and then put it in contacts later when I got home. I am sure her info is there somewhere, but finding it? That is another story…

The last show to walk in the China Moment collective was Cashmere Song. A wonderfully focused vision of fashion as an extension of the beauty found in the most natural of elements—fibers. Taking fiber arts to the runway and transforming it, allowing it to find it’s way in the realm of high fashion. Made from the finest eco friendly, raw cashmere and embracing the body in layers, alternating with form-fitting pieces to more relaxed fits, and with head to toe knits and a homogenized palette of cream; the garments in this collection express a quiet beauty, and revel an inner strength of stark earnestness. And with the deceivingly simple lines of the silhouette all the attention is on the exquisite head pieces. Gorgeously ornate creations, sculptures of wool if you will, and an unabashed celebration of fashion as art.

The second show to walk for the China Moment collective was Syu Syu Han. With it’s approachable gothic aesthetic and what I liked to call it’s minimalist bondage detailing, this collection is a bold yet disciplined expression of the female form. With it’s push and pull contrasts of sleek artful draping and austere bodice pieces and the simple black and white palette the effect is subtly intrusive. Not for the demure or the shy, but for those that dare to embrace the edge of fashion and walk that edge proudly.

Fashion Week may be over here in New York but as we know it continues abroad and as any self respecting fashionista knows, it is really Fashion Month. London Fashion Week has just wrapped and with Paris Fashion Week close behind it this wonderful month of fabulous fashion frenzy continues.

And so my coverage of NYFW continues as well and this week we will looking at the second Nolcha Fashion show  I attended. The second show I attended was the Collective show and this season the focus was on China, and this season’s show The China Movement Collective featured emerging designers from China.

It opened with NIKISTAVIA, a clothing line of personalized haute couture, or customizable high end wear. I think my heart just skipped a beat, gorgeous breath taking clothes made to my measurements? Yes please!

and it hit me—all the hard work and the long hours and the dragging myself to sit in front of the computer after working a nine hour day—this is where I belong, this is why I do what I do, this is why I push myself.

The show was a stunner and as I stood behind the third row taking pictures, with the music pulsing, and the models strutting down the runway I experienced a rush of adrenaline, and it hit me—all the hard work and the long hours and the dragging myself to sit in front of the computer after working a nine hour day—this is where I belong, this is why I do it.

From the exquisite fabrics to the striking jewel toned prints and painterly graphics to the contrasting pale pastels, gossamer details, bell sleeved shifts, ruffled cocktail dresses and peplumed frocks, this is one righteously royal collection, fit for the most fashionable of queens. I didn’t want it to end. And rest assured girls (and boys), this is one designer with a bright bright future.

I so have my eye on the orange zebra print jumpsuit. I guess I will have to be patient until resort season rolls around!

Whew another Fashion Week has come and gone. It was a busy one, fun but busy. After a busy weekend attending a variety of Fashion Week events The week started with the Nolcha Fashion Shows I attended the Main show and the Collective show. The main show featured returning designers Acid NYC and Rohitava Banerjee and also featured new comer Samantha Leibowitz. I was almost late for the Main show as there was no internet connection in the lobby of the building I work in and it took me a half hour to get an Uber. Needless to say I was bit frazzled when I arrived and had to stand for the first presentation, though I was able to take some snaps so all was not lost.

The Main show opened with Samantha Leibowitz a designer known for making edgy but approachable clothes for the urban woman. From splashy painterly prints to out of the box off the shoulder tops to strappy pull overs this collection is a wearable and youth inspired celebration with a touch of a rock-n-roll edge. And do you recognize one of the models? I had time to kill between shows and stepped outside for some air where I recognized a young women I was convinced I knew. Was she a blogger? Was she part of the NYC Style Collective? Did I meet her before?

After racking my brain with no results I approached her and inquired if was a blogger, no, she is not a blogger but a model and got her start on America’ Next Top Model, of course! That was it! Then I knew exactly who she was. Only in New York!  And stay tuned for the rest of the coverage…
