nyfwRow 1, L to R: Delpozo, Georgine Row 2, L to R: Narciso Rodriquez, Rosie Assoulin  Row 3, L to R: Michael Kors, The Row

I don’t know if you have been following the shows and trends lately, but there seems to be some kind of clash going on between the 90s and the 70s. Some of you favorite styles-and many that you hated- from the 90s are coming back full force, but coming in neck in neck with them is the 70s. Culottes in various lengths of short are back, suedes and animal prints, platforms, and even bell bottoms are coming back. Are you ready for the 70s trend? Is it something you are going to attempt come this fall? I might. We shall see how it goes. Photos from the Georgine PR reps and Style.com.

Hey everyone. Can you guess what my #TBT Style Icon with boohoo.com is? Hint, hint. The name is in the title of this post. British retailer Boohoo.com told me to pick out some clothes and base them on one of my style icons for a #tbt or Throwback Thursday post. One of my favorite movies from the 90s is The Craft.

missguided +

AWW SNAP!! UK brand Missguided adds plus sizes to their site, so that #babesofallsizes can get some great fashion. A lot of the UK brands have really good plus size lines. I don’t know what is going on in the US market. It seems like we have to rely on the UK brands and indie plus size designers. Missguided + is a line that I think trendy, fashion forward plus size shoppers will love.

Design Collective for Evans S/S15 Fashion Show

I know I am late to the party-preparing for finals y’all, but I had to post this. The Design Collective for Evans S/S15 fashion show was the first time a plus size retailer had shown at London Fashion Week, and that is big news. I mean they literally made history. A lot of the clothes in this collection are super cute. I love the colors, the laser cut skirts, the fabrics that went from really sheer to really solid. I can’t wait to see how they translate this to their website next season.

Ashley Stewart Fall Plus Size Fashion Haul

Here is my video of my new fall pieces from Ashley Stewart. I am no model, but I tried to show you the different ways to wear the skirt, shirt, and sweaters. The Skirt is $34.50 and has ruching down the side. The shirt has a removable jewelry piece at the neckline, is quilted, and is also $34.50. *SIDE NOTE- This top is fitted, so it you want a looser fit, order a size up. The sweaters or cardis are both $29.50 and felt warm on the chilly day that I shot my video in the shade.


FashionMingle.net New York Fashion Week Day 7 Report

TICKET TO THE TENTS DAY 7 TREND REPORT(Featuring Betsey Johnson, Erin Fetherston, Anna Sui, Deola Sagoe/Clan, Michael Kors)

We are wrapping up our New York Fashion Week coverage, and survived 7 days of running around the city to bring you the latest and greatest in fashion week news! Here is our take on Day 7 trends!

UNIQUE RUNWAY

What’s fashion week without an over-the-top runway presentation by Betsey Johnson? Boring! And our team at FashionMingle.net doesn’t like boring, so luckily for us, we have Betsey Johnson’s runway to look forward to every season. Betsey showcased her Spring collection on Day 7, opening up the show with 2 models representing gay marriage.  When they turned around their suit coats said pre-nup! And that was the name of Betsey’s wedding-themed collection.

COLOR

Erin Fetherston’s collection was classically simple, but lovely.  Erin featured black and white, pastel yellows, and deep shades of blue.  By default, Betsey’s collection featured a lot of white, since it was wedding themed.  Michael Kors’ collection was also heavy on the blues and yellows, though there were some pastels, and black and white separates intermixed in the collection.

PRINTS

No one mixes prints like Anna Sui, and for her Spring 2015 collection she did not disappoint. Erin Fetherston also incorporated florals, but again in a simple, but sophisticated way. The florals in Erin’s collection did not overwhelm the garments.  Michael Kors featured a plethora of print looks, but the prints were either floral based or plaid based.

FABRICS

Betsey Johnson’s runway featured lots of tulle, as to be expected for her wedding themed collection.  Betsey also featured a few looks that resembled nylon or plastic that would typically be used for rain coat materials! I could definitely see Miley Cyrus in one of these  plastic-esque looks! Erin incorporated sheer fabrics into her collection for use in her striped looks.

ACCESSORIES

The Anna Sui models had everything from veils to shades. It was a really cool runway! Betsey Johnson’s wedding themed collection entitled Pre-Nup featured fun heels and fun handbags.  She created a cake shape handbag and a lipstick shaped handbag.

DEBUT RUNWAY: Deola Sagoe/Clan

The brands Deola Sagoe and Clan fashions debuted for the first time at New York Fashion Week.  Deola Sagoe is the designer behind the Deola Sagoe label, while the clan collection is designed by her daughters Tena, Tiwa, and Aba Sagoe.  They labels are based in Africa, and this was their first time showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The looks were unique, and we love to see emerging and up and coming designers featured at New York Fashion Week.
