Mellow Yellow

11 . 03 . 11

If there is one color you should try to incorporate into your wardrobe come spring, it’s yellow.  I saw a yellow dress on pretty much every runway for Spring 2012 but the fashion flock were wearing yellow on the street during fashion week.  It’s a collection of my favorite looks including Anna and Vivianna shot […]

The themes that keep appearing for Spring 2012 fashion are color and pattern.  They also seems to be appearing off the runway.  Due to unseasonably warm weather in Paris, the street style photographers Tommy Ton, Phil Oh and others are catching the fashion flock looking a lot like peacocks. Obviously, you can take their outfits […]

In the Mood for Spring

09 . 20 . 11

One of my favorite things in the world are inspiration or mood boards.  Looking at them is like peeking into someone’s creative mind.  Vogue posted some during seasons past which I posted here and here.  For Spring 2012, Vogue.com featured inspiration from not only New York but also London fashion week.  Definitely click to enlarge […]

Derek Lam Spring 2012

09 . 19 . 11

”When I’m doing a little California dreamin’, I am in a beautifully appointed mid-century home, like the Kaufmann House in Palm Springs, by Richard Neutra.  The clean minimal interior, the wide open desert landscape, the informality of living in nature yet also sheltered in rational and soul warming architecture; that is my mind wandering to […]

I love this photo of fashion designer Derek Lam that I took backstage before his Spring 2011 show.  He was posing for photos for another team and I was behind them hoping to get a nice shot when all of the sudden he turned and smiled at me.  It really sums up his lovely personality […]

I was beyond excited to be invited backstage at the Derek Lam Spring 2012 show again by Estee Lauder.  It is such a treat to watch makeup artist Tom Pecheux for Estée Lauder and his team work their magic on the models.  That’s in addition to Jin Soon Choi for Estée Lauder and her team […]

“Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.” – Bill Cunningham For those of you who live in New York, the documentary Bill Cunningham New York is now available On Demand on Time Warner Cable.  I highly recommend it.  The photo of Bill Cunningham chatting with Stan Herman outside the Ralph Lauren […]

I attended my first ever Ralph Lauren fashion show today and I can tell you that it was even more magical than I imagined.  I was wondering why Ralph Lauren holds their show at Skylight Studios all the way downtown.  When I walked inside, the answer was clear.  Every detail from the sisal carpet to the […]

Fun at Fashion Week

09 . 13 . 11

I’ve been so busy attending shows, events and parties this fashion week that I’m behind on downloading and editing all my photos!  I’m working fast and furiously to put some posts together but in the meantime, here’s a great shot I took of Italian fashion editor Anna Dello Russo after the Tory Burch fashion show […]

I was familiar with the Fenton and Fallon jewelry lines but it was Twitter that personally introduced me to the designer behind them, Dana Lorenz.  Her impeccable taste and style was on full display at her Spring 2012 presentation for the Fenton collection at The Four Seasons restaurant on Friday.  It was the perfect chic […]

During fashion week, the big designers and shows get most of the attention but it’s also important to support the younger designers as well.  On Thursday, I stopped by Rachel Antonoff‘s Spring/Summer 2012 presentation.  The runway shows at the tents can cost thousands of dollars so many designers show off site and this one was […]
