The consensus is that we’re all tired of seeing the same girls on every street style site.  That’s why I found J.J. Martin’s real style refreshing.  She’s the Italian Editor at Large for Wallpaper (talk about dream job!) and always looks like she’s wearing her own clothes not pieces given to her by fashion houses.  I keep […]

A Fashionable Venue

10 . 12 . 12

One of the shows I regret not attending during fashion week in New York was Barbara Tfank.  My friend Blue Carreon saw it and raved not only about the clothing but also the venue.  It was shown in an Upper East Side apartment of interior designer Michael Smith and was a perfect pairing.  You can […]

Belstaff on the Runway

09 . 21 . 12

One of the most exciting shows I attended during fashion week was Belstaff.  The Spring 2013 show was their first runway presentation since Martin Cooper has taken over as designer and it didn’t disappoint.  The muted tones were a welcome respite after all the color elsewhere that week. There were definitely hints to the motorcycle […]

Beautiful Backdrop

09 . 15 . 12

The Beatrice Inn was a favorite with the fashion flock until it closed in 2009.  Vanity Fair editor in chief Graydon Carter recently resurrected the restaurant just in time for Calvin Klein to host a chic party during fashion week. I actually pulled together photos to post of the new space since I love the […]

While it’s fun to look at all the fabulous shows during fashion week, let’s face it, most of us will be shopping at J.Crew come spring. The ladies side of the presentation was full of fun patterns and prints mixed with abandon. I’m seeing a lot of pale pink and green on the runways and J.Crew […]

Mellow Yellow Magpie

09 . 12 . 12

I think we all had a feeling that the yellow benches at the Tory Burch Spring 2013 runway show were a hint at what was to come. According to the notes, the collection is an “American prep remix” inspired by a “stylish magpie who picks up special pieces while traveling around the world and always […]

World Wide Webb

09 . 09 . 12

Fashion designer Marissa Webb spent eleven years at J.Crew but showed solo for the first time on Saturday morning.  It was clear that she is thriving on her own and that my wallet is going to be a lot lighter after her creations hit the stores.  According to Marissa, the collection is a mix of “high […]

I Spy…

I spied The Sartorialist chatting with fashion editor of Tank magazine, Caroline Issa at the tents today.  Never know who you might see during fashion week so you better dress your best! Photos by moi

The models at the Nautica Men’s Spring 2013 presentation on Friday were hot, literally and figuratively.  The roof of the Empire Hotel created a great backdrop but the poor boys in the coats were sweating in the 80+ degree temperatures.  We were grateful for their steely professionalism because the show was great.  It was “inspired […]

Ladies, and gents, with great personal style always design the best collections. That  is the case with Veronica Beard, both of them.  Sisters in law Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard the co-designers behind the label Veronica Beard presented a beautiful spring 2013 collection at the Gramercy Park Hotel Wednesday evening.  I liked it […]

I’m going to attempt to recap each day at the Spring 2013 shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  We’ll see how far I get due to exhaustion and lack of time.  But I can tell you what happened on Day One.  I missed my first two shows for various reasons.  I managed to get some […]

And so it begins.  Today is the first day of fashion week in New York and the city is a buzz.  Even though we’ve just started getting ready for fall, everyone is excited to see what designers have in store for Spring 2013. I’m scheduled to attend more than 60 shows.  Whether I make it […]
