NYFW 2016: Bata Spasojević

The Bata Spasojević show, part of the Art Hearts Fashion series at New York Fashion Week is totally on point with everything "Modern Romanti. Historical inspirations mixed with modern day street style was seen throughout this season's collection in both men and womenwear. The influencing eras ranged from the Medieval to Victorian eras but we're all integrated well with one another. The makeup and hair styling evoked The Phantom of the Opera or another sort of a period masked figure. Can't wait to see how these will translate into total street style!

NYFW 2016: Zvonko Markovic

As part of the Art Hearts Fashion show segment of NYFW, Zvonko Markovic showed her collection of formal womenswear. Her dark evening gowns were the highlight and would suit a wide array of women, with textures ranging from lace to beading. Cutouts and sheer sections were definitely the key parts of her pieces. Sexy black dresses are always a favorite for women, and Markovic definitely found her niche!

NYFW 2016: Marina Mićanovic

Marina Mićanovic showed as part of the popular Art Hearts Fashion Show at NYFW. The collection featured three-dimensional pieces that resembled a clown or joker inspiration, in solids black and white and checkered patterns. These pieces would do very well on at events on the red carpet or for special projects like music videos. Only the most creative and outlandish women would get away with them out on the streets!

NYFW 2016: Georgine

Georgine is always one of my favorite shows to check out each season, whether I am able to attend or not. I'd like to thank Ben Benson for all of these fantastic shots of the collection, as well as a few behind the scenes photos! I've included my favorite shots and looks in the blog. 

This season was feminine, with luxe details in lace, fur, and sparkle and shine throughout. The somewhat pastel color palette included a bit of pale pink and baby blue with plenty of black, gray, and beige neutrals in the mix. A standout piece from the collection was the tan coat with ombré blue two-tone sequins trailing down to the hems that would make any head turn. As usual, Georgine has prepared her elegant women for a fanciful life, but I was happy to see that she still included some wearable pieces for practical work days. Cheers to another season! 
                         


NYFW 2016: Adrienne Landeau

The Adrienne Landeau presentation was a fabulous display of fanciful fur mixed with downtown street style. More muted accessories from bucket hats to backpacks kept it low key in juxtaposition with the colored and patterned furs. Overall the collection had a safari and outback look thrown into the mix which I was definitely a fan of. Known for her fur, Ms. Landeau did not disappoint this season with plenty of options to choose from!

NYFW 2016: Libertine

Photos by Nick DeLieto

Libertine's F/W 2016 collection was an explosion of color and patterns picketing down the runway, literally! The theme for the show evoked 70s political movements not only in terms of the signs some of the models walked with or the statements literally sewn on the clothes but with plenty of straight up lavish hippie garbs. Fur, patchwork, fringe, suede, embellishment, and graphics made an appearance. A nice fresh edge was brought in with the capes on several of the women. Libertine also mixed in plenty of wearable neutrals, especially in the menswear. Now this coming fall, will we als be seeing these uneven hairstyles on the streets?

NYFW 2016: Jessica Lynn Presentation

Photos and review by fashion corespondent Nana Yaa Ansah

Yesterday, I went to the Casa de Moda Presentation at the Prince George Ballroom. Casa de Moda by Jessica Lynn is a contemporary women's line that celebrates diversity, and stands by the belief that women can wear their many hats in life, have fun, and look effortlessly cool in the process. The event was hosted by fellow blogger Briea Dior (@brieadior). The women looked effortlessly stylish in neutrals and small prints. One of the coolest details of the collection were the graphic and asymmetrical skirts. A standout look was an edgy, all white number with shades and a chocker by @mirinacollections. There was plenty of other statement jewelry including a metal necklace with aqua colored beads for a crop top look- yes, good news, crop tops are still a go!
