And we're off..

Yesterday was the beginning of New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion week. I must say, it was quite invigorating sitting in class and hiding my phone from my professors to get a first look at some of the shows through an amazing tool i like to call instagram. Yes, it hurts not to be in New York during this annual historic fashion event BUT I will be there next year. Don't you worry. Since i'm no where near the actual fashion shows, the next best thing is my macbook. Thanks to Style I can keep up with the lastest runway shows and see what's coming up for the Resort collections. A few of my favorites yesterday had to be Kimberly Ovitz, Rachel Comey, and Tadashi Shoji.

Here, Kimberly Ovitz kicks ass with basic colors such as black and white and a simple but edgy approach to design in her dresses, knits, and bottoms.  

Next, Rachel Comey comes in with beautiful feminine silhouettes paired with inspiration from mens suits. The floral and metallics are a perfect touch for the fall. 

Lastly, Tadashi Shoji presents her "little house on the prairie" turned sexy dresses combined with lace and bold autumn colors.

Gimme more!

First look

Here's the first look Scott Schuman had posted during last year's MBFW. I'm impatiently waiting for his shots from the upcoming week so i figured the best way to calm myself down is to look through all his shots from 2011. Time well spent, trust me.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has arrived!

September for most may seem like it's the beginning of school, work, winter, and real life but for me and many others it's the long awaited time for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. Although I've never actually attended MBFW, I do however follow all the fashion shows and my favorite, street shots, taken during fashion week. Tomorrow is the official first day of fashion shows and there is a great line-up consisting of BCBG Max Azria, Nicholas K, Richard Chai, Kaelen, Chadwick Bell, Tadashi Shoji and the lovely, Monika Chiang. Since i'm especially excited to see Kaelen's Spring 2013 collection I decided it would be appropriate to put together a few of my favorite looks from Kaelen's Fall collection. Suits, lace, color block, and metallics. What's up for next season?

Chloe for miu miu

Chloe Sevigny, actress, fashion designer and former model from our neck of the woods, Massachusetts, is the new face of miu miu's fall/winter campaign. Sevigny was definitely an appropriate choice by miu miu because of her eccentric style and ability to play with prints and textures just as well as miu miu. Here's a video from the campaign that helps you get a better look at how perfect this is. 

The things i'd do to be the person behind the camera.
