I haven’t been posting about New York Fashion Week like I usually do because
1. I’m not there to attend the shows this season and…
2. I have been doing school projects and studying for midterms!!!
But have no fear, the lovelies at Fashionmingle.net have been reporting on the whatnots and the here heres at fashion week in New York. I can tell from all of their reports thus far that New York Fashion Week has definitely been bringing the heat despite what the polar vortex might be trying to pull.
I am not going to lie to you when I tell you that I was a little discouraged yesterday by the sameness of the clothes, but today is a new day with new photos.
Monique Lhuillier gave me a little Art Deco/ Golden Age of Hollywood feel when I looked at her clothes. They were beautiful. I can definitely see them on the red carpet at some function, but the styling of the accessories threw me off. The shoes were great but the fedora just seemed completely out of place.
Vena Cava was a great collection for that edgy Rihanna type girl. You could definitely see a lot of influences mixed up in the collection. I saw 80s bodcon shapes mixed with 20s resort wear. I also saw dark and colorful touches mixed with graphic patterns, African tribal color schemes and safety pin camisoles.
Is Prabal Gurung fashion’s next superstar? Some say so and I can see why. The fabrics and draping were amazing. The pictures made me wish I was there so I could touch the clothes. The oversized bow was a common accent on his pieces, too. I think a lot of his pieces could be swapped between Ms. Uptown and her little sister Miss Downtown. The question is, who is willing to share?
Gwen Stefani is my girl. I have been in love with No Doubt since their first cd, which I may or may not have had on cassette. SMH! Anyway! L.A.M.B. aka Love Angel Music Baby is always a fantastic and surprising collection to me because you know it is going to be very Gwen-like, and you never know what she is in to at the time. I can’t keep up with her looks. Is she a 40s pin-up blond or a Japanese Barbie doll. Who knows or cares as long as the clothes look good, right? I loved the fact that she used a lot of ethnic models, and I totally want those gray harem pants with the pockets on the side. Another thing I loved was the fact that this was the first collection I saw that looked distinctly Spring-like.

Jason Wu, of Michelle Obama inauguration dress fame, showed a beautiful collection full of bright colors and flattering shapes. Check out more pics here at Jezebel.
I was going to write about BCBG, but I was bored with it. You find it here.
I didn’t really like the Charlotte Ronson show either. I did manage to like one or two dresses but I felt like I had seen them before somewhere.I found them on RackedNY.
Sorry if I don’t really show pictures of ones that I don’t like.
I went to Style.com and found some more great shows.
Peter Som was very colorful for a fall show but I still liked it.
Monique Lhuillier was very gothic, but at least it looked fall like.
