FashionMingle.net New York Fashion Week Day 6 Report

The lovely peeps at FashionMingle.net will be bringing us an awesome report each day from New York Fashion Week. Enjoy!

TICKET TO THE TENTS DAY 6 TREND REPORT

(Featuring Vivienne Hu, Narcisco Rodriguez, Badgley Mischka, Nolcha Fashion Week, Diesel Black Gold, Jenny Packham, Naeem Khan, Zang Toi,  Pamella Roland, Michael Costello)

Day 6 was extremely busy for our team! Heather and Sofia attended Nolcha Fashion Week, while Shalanda and Jane stayed at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to capture the shows at the Tents.

COLOR

Black and white remained popular for Day 6 of New York Fashion Week. Zang Toi’s celebrated his 25th anniversary as a label with a heavily black and white collection. He also featured deep shades of green, red and purple, which is rather unique for Spring!  Ever since Victoria Beckham’s show earlier in the week, we’ve seen more and more designers incorporating darker shades into their collections. Typically these hues are reserved for Fall, but the use of deep shades of blues, greens, and purples further prove the blurred line phenomenon happening between the seasons. Diesel Black and Gold also featured a heavily black, & white collection. Whether they were all black or all white separates or black and white prints. Other designers to incorporate black and white into their Spring collections were Vivienne Hu & Narcisco Rodriguez. Jenny Packham’s collection featured oxblood looks along with pastel yellow, and sky blue looks. The collection combination of pastels with the darker oxblood was pretty cool.

STYLES

Michael Costello, Badgley Mischka and Zang Toi’s collections were heavy on the evening gown from, as to be expected since they are all magnificent evening wear designers. Not everyone can do evening wear, and it’s really an art in and of itself.  Sophie Theallet took lengths to above the need with voluminous A-line skirts. Crop tops are showing their staying power, and even though the crop top is popular, the jumpsuit is here to stay with a vengeance.  Almost every designer has featured at least one or more jumpsuits in their collections. Rompers seem to be inexistent, as everyone seems to prefer to the pantsuit edition. Pamella Roland featured a lovely white jumpsuit for her Spring 2015 collection.

FashionMingle.net New York Fashion Week Report Day 5

The lovely peeps at FashionMingle.net will be bringing us an awesome report each day from New York Fashion Week. Enjoy!

TICKET TO THE TENTS DAY 5 TREND REPORT
(Featuring Lela Rose, Carolina Herrera, Dennis Basso, Reem Acra, Libertine & Oudifu)

The FashionMingle.net team wrapped up Day 5 late covering the last shows of the day; Libertine & Oudifu.  Oudifu is considered an emerging label to the U.S., but is very popular in China!  In addition to bringing in designers from around the world to showcase their collections at MBFW, IMG has done a major push to feature international emerging and up and coming designers.  Grant it, this may be due to the fact that heavy-hitter names, such as DVF, Michael Kors, and more, have been pulling out of MBFW over the last few seasons to showcase offsite. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Young, emerging & up and coming designers have embraced the new culture of fashion, and with these gaps in the time slot of MBFW, they now have an opportunity to bring their designs to the masses.  Designers such as Libertine, Oudifu, Vivienne Hu, Mark & Estel, Falguni & Shane Peacock are just a few brands that have now become MBFW household names.


COLOR
The real first emergence of black and white combinations showed up on Day 5 of New York Fashion Week, starting with Lela Rose’s runway for spring. Lela Rose featured bold gingham and polka dot prints in black and white.  Carolina Herrera favored the color red in her collection, infusing single, and ginormous red flowers on white fabric.  The popular all white ensembles also showed up in CH’s runway, and like Victoria Beckham the day before her, Carolina Herrera featured a dark hue of purple, which is unexpected for Spring!

FABRIC
Dennis Basso opened his collection with a dedication to the late Joan Rivers. All of us at FashionMingle.net and our media partners send our condolences to Joan’s friends and family.  In typical, Basso style, his collection featured fur! Surprisingly there wasn’t as much fur as some of his previous collections, but there was fur nonetheless.  Reem Acra has the best name in the world for a fashion designer! Her name makes me think of fabric! Reem created looks that featured tons of sparkle and shine.  The audience collectively let out ooohs and aahhs as the amazing gowns just kept coming.

UNIQUE FIND: Johnson Harting’s Libertine
Johnson is the designer behind the label Libertine. Every season I discover new brands…well at least they are new to me.  This was my first time seeing Libertine clothes and I had no idea what was in store! As soon as the lights went down, I knew I was in for a treat.  The models came storming out one after the other, to upbeat, pop culture tunes, while wearing the wildest street wear looks imaginable. Wild but functional and fun.  There were tons of colors, fabrics, and 3D enhancements on the clothes.  To finish the show, Johnson led his models around the room in true party walk style. The audience, who simply loved the collection, cheered and clapped for the final walk.  Johnson’s clothes may not be for everybody…especially the faint at heart, but watching the show and viewing his creativity is definitely exciting!

Georgine SS15 Brings the 70s Glam To New York Fashion Week

Georgine SS15

Georgine SS 15 brings the 70s glam to New York Fashion Week! The sparkles and shine are a trend that is popping up on many runways this season and it is a fun trend I can get behind. The candy wrapper disco glam look reminds me of the Studio 54 era fashions that you would see on Diana Ross or Bianca Jagger ( who was part of the inspiration for this collection). They also remind me of fashion stylist Catherine Baba- a personal style icon of mind.

Apparently the “Looks were accessorized with mink tote bags and beach towels as well as leather clutches in the shape of surfboards in collaboration with Max Steiner Design.” Cute! Cute! Cute! Cute! Cute! I am loving the trends that we are seeing so far. I wonder what the next three fashion weeks will have in store for us. Photos from Georgine.

FashionMingle.net New York Fashion Week Day 4 Report

The lovely peeps at FashionMingle.net will be bringing us an awesome report each day from New York Fashion Week. Enjoy!

TICKET TO THE TENTS: Day 4 Spring 2015 NYFW Trend Report

(Featuring Fashion Shenzen, Nanette Lepore, Victoria Beckham, Czar by Cesar Galindo, Custo Barcelona, Vivienne Tam, DVF and Parkchoonmoo)

Every fashion week, something is bound to go wrong! From losing equipment to someone being sick, and this fashion week is no exception! Our team is definitely being run through the ringer, working out technical difficulties with our laptops and our website, but we won’t let that stop us! It’s all a part of the experience of covering New York Fashion Week. Even with our technical difficulties the team wrapped up Day 4 in one piece!

UNIQUE SHOWCASE

In addition to the regularly scheduled designers that show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, IMG works to bring unique shows to the venue. Fashion Shenzen is always a delight, as it features fashion designers from China.  Fashion is a universal industry, and it’s amazing to see styles and design aesthetics from around the world! The Fashion Shenzen designers featured looks made in shiny and sheer fabrics. They also favored highly embellished gowns with lots of sequins.

PRINTS & FABRIC

Custo Barcelona featured abstract prints and perforated fabrics. Vivienne Tam incorporated palm tree prints into her collection, continuing the popular tropical prints theme we’ve been seeing over the last couple days. Cesar Galindo used metallic and sequin fabrics in his collection.

COLOR

All white ensembles are still popular going into Day 4. Nanette Lepore featured a few all white looks, but the favored color for her collection was definitely yellow! Yellow shoes, yellow-based prints, and solid yellow dresses, Nanette let us know that yellow will be trending for Spring, and she’s not the only one. Cesar Galindo also featured yellow in his collection, along with greens, pastel oranges, and metallic.  Victoria Beckham’s spring collection was heavy on the tans & neutral colors black and white. Victoria even featured an oxblood hue that is typically reserved for Fall!

HAIR

For the most part, there’s been 2 big trends for hair: Braids or slicked back and loose. I think braids will always be a popular choice for Spring & Summer!

ACCESSORIES

The bigger the better! The Czar collection featured bold, colorful necklaces that would make the wearer the center of attention in any room.

(Featuring Mara Hoffman, Alon Livne, Amir Taghi, Anya Caliendo, Herve Leger, Malan Breton & Venexiana)

Later in the evening, our team reconvened at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to cover Malan Breton and Venexiana.

 

STYLES

Apparently, crop tops are here to stay! Amir Taghi favored sexy crop tops that incorporated deep V-necks. Mara Hoffman’s collection featured wide-leg pants, in all lengths (culotte and full). Mara Hoffman is also the queen of maxi dresses and sent a plethora of vibrant maxi dresses down the runway. Alon Livne stayed true to his warrior woman style, presenting a fierce collection full of sparkles, cut-outs, and 3D-enhancements.

FABRIC

There seems to be a lot of transportation through clothes going on this week! Malan Breton presented his “Journey to Taiwan” Spring Collection, complete with dancers and musical performers.  Malan chose to use sateen-finish fabrics for the majority of his collection.  At a minimum, Malan Breton showed 60 looks last night.  He may win the award for the most extensive runway presentation during fashion week!

PRINTS

As fashion week continues, we’re starting to see more and more prints. Herve Leger by Max Azria featured bold prints and embellished fabrics in their Spring 2015 collection. Tropical prints are pretty popular for Spring! Nicole Miller took us to Rio De Janeiro on Day 2, and Mara Hoffman took us to the beach with palm tree prints, and prints that resembled the sun rising over the ocean.

COLOR

Lots of all white ensembles, pastels, and pops of bright color! Designers who featured tons of prints incorporated color by default, choosing vibrant and bold prints.

ACCESSORIES

Mara Hoffman takes the baseball hat to a girlie level by adding a tie-back scarf for the cap closure.  Heather and Jeanine checked out Anya Caliendo’s hat show at St. Regis Hotel! Of course we have to feature some of Anya’a amazing work for Spring! Wearing one of these hats will definitely escalate your fashion status from blah to haute couture faster than a sale at Bloomingdales!

FashionMingle.net New York Fashion Week Day 2 Report

The lovely peeps at <a href=”FashionMingle.net” target=”_blank”>FashionMingle.net </a>will be bringing us an awesome report each day from New York Fashion Week. Enjoy!

TICKET TO THE TENTS: DAY 2 SPRING 2015 NYFW TREND REPORT
(Featuring Trina Turk, Charlotte Ronson, Zimmermann, Nicole Miller, Monique Lhuillier, & Mark & Estel)

We survived Day 2 of New York Fashion Week! Can you believe the FashionMingle.net team is already tired? And we have 6 more days of coverage to bring to you! For Day 2, the team kicked off the day with Mark & Estel’s Spring 2015 Collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. After that the team split up. Heather, Otaymah, and Jeanine covered Saunder, and conducted an interview with David Tupaz off-site, while Michelle, Jane, & Shalanda stayed at Lincoln Center to cover the shows there and conduct an interview with Nicole Miller.

FABRIC
Sometimes less is more as displayed by Mark & Estel. Their collection was solely made out of cotton found in your everyday denim, sweatpants and t-shirts. How do I know? Because during their final walk, Estel Day announced it to us during their closing song performance. Attending a Mark & Estel is always fun, and it was a great way to kick-off Day 2 of New York Fashion Week.

In stark contrast to the cotton-heavy Mark & Estel Collection, Monique Lhuillier, opted for shiny, and metallic finish fabrics such as satin and silk and glittery fabrics for her plethora of gowns and dresses. Zimmermann also favored metallic hues in suiting.

COLOR
As seen on the Day 1 runways, pastels were again the favored choice amongst designers for day 2. Charlotte Ronson featured peach, pale blue, and pale green hues and Zimmerman featured pale yellows. And while there was a pop of pastels here and there, Trina Turk stood by her claim to fame and design aesthetic of using bold and vibrant colors. It appears that even if pastels are trending, Trina will rebel and stay bold, and who can blame her? The scene during her presentation was fun and flirty and the bold hues added to the playfulness of the collection.

ACCESSORIES
Trina Turk collection’s was not only playful, but it made me think of the 60s, especially with the models wearing wide scarf headbands! The models wore bold, statement necklaces and posed with handbags of all shapes and sizes. Popular in both the Charlotte Ronson and Trina Turk collections were these comfortable looking sandals. Is the gladiator sandal being replaced next season as the it-shoe for Spring? We’ll find out.

PRINTS
Nicole Miller’s collection stood out on Day 2 for having the most prints. Her vision of transporting her wearers to Rio De Janeiro Brazil was creatively conveyed to the audience. The models wore prints that featured birds and palm trees, while carrying luggage. Charlotte Ronson featured a few floral prints, but overall prints were pretty minute throughout the collections with solid colors dominating day 2.

Bad Bish- Kaelen SS15 Shows At New York Fashion Week

Kaelen SS15

I love fashion label Kaelen. I went to one of the brand’s first major shows during New York Fashion Week a few seasons ago. The line is young, yet sophisticated. It is also very fresh and hip. These are the kinds of clothes I want to design for plus size women. I want to make  clothes that look modern like these garments in the picture above. Kaelen is such an inspiration to me. Photos from here.

FashionMingle.net New York Fashion Week Update From Day 1

The lovely peeps at FashionMingle.net will be bringing us an awesome report each day from New York Fashion Week. Enjoy!

TICKET TO THE TENTS: DAY 1 SPRING 2015 NYFW TREND REPORT
 (Featuring Nicholas K, Richard Chai, BCBGMaxAzria, Tadashi Shoji, Marissa Webb, CuteCircuit, & Desigual)

It’s September! Which means we’ve arrived at another New York Fashion Week. If you’re like us, this makes September one of our favorite months of the year! In fact, we’d go so far as to agree with Instagrammer, Candy Price Pratt that “September is the January of Fashion!” New York Fashion Week officially kicked off yesterday with designers presenting their Spring 2015 Collections. The FashionMingle.net team was on the scene covering the first day of New York Fashion Week. Representing FashionMingle.net this year, we have Fashion Mingle Style Editor, Shalanda Turner, Videographer, Michelle Elise Harding, Photographer Jane Kratochvil, and Contributors, Otaymah Bonds, Heather Petrey & Jeanine Valiente.

COLOR
Nicholas K kicked off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in their usual 9am spot on day one inside the tents. While the draping, layers and loose silhouettes are not new to Nicholas K, their introduction of a pretty, pastel teal green was a change from the browns, tans and whites. We’re hoping this color is a fixture in all the runways for Spring.

And continuing with pastels, it appears that pastels will continue to dominate next Spring as they did this year. Lubov and Max presented a collection for BCBGMaxAzria that included pastel pinks & blue along with a ton of white and off-white garments. However, some designers opted to include pops of bright colors in their collections. Richard Chai featured a bold lime-yellow color for spring, and Desigual, known for bold and colorful prints did not disappoint.

Desigual - Jane Kratochvil

PRINTS
In contrast to Desigual’s bold use of prints in every garment, most of the runways were absent of significant amounts of prints, with the designers opting for solid colors to convey their visions. If there were prints, they were mosaic and abstract in nature, versus typical floral prints that usually dominate for Spring.

BCBGMaxAzria - Jane Kratochvil

SILHOUETTES

Long is the new black! Tadashi Shoji favored knee-length dresses and full-length gowns. BCBGMaxAzria also went long for spring with wide-leg trousers and ankle-length skirts. Marissa Webb featured super-chic outerwear pieces for spring from ankle-length trench coats, to peplum wind-breakers. There’s a lot of material on the runways for Spring. Long and free flowing fabrics that offer tons of movement for the wearer.
Tadashi Shoji - Jane Kratochvilhttp://www.janekratochvil.com
UNIQUE TREND

Wearable Technology is all the rage right now and CuteCircuit has taken the world by storm with their technological clothing innovations. Their collection for Spring, featured cool, digital enhancements that were incorporated into the clothes, shiny and glittery fabrics, and even digitally enhanced bathing suites! Forget wearable tech bracelets, we want the clothes version!
