After a long summer, it was definitely nice being back in the city. Even though, it was insanely warm and I had terrible jet lag, all the designers' shows exceeded my expectations. From Misha Collection's stunning jumpsuits to Monique Lhuiller's beautifully patterned dresses. Fashion week never fails to surprise me. 

During the week, many people were dressed in bold and bright colors, day dresses and cute shoes. Since the sun was out everyday, almost everyone was excited with being on the streets and get their photos taken by paparazzi and street style photographers. They were EVERYWHERE. There were some pretty interesting looking hats too. I love the creativity and fashion that people bring to the streets during NYFW. Anyway, in between all this mess of getting around the city and getting into ten cabs per day to attend different shows, I was furnishing my new studio in Hell's Kitchen. Thank god, my mom was there to help; my token of appreciation for her was inviting her to all the shows with me... THANKS MOM. Let's just say she enjoyed it :)

Can't wait till Feb 2017!

  • Day 1

  • || Urban Outfitters Romper ||
  • || Steve Madden Heels ||

Day 1: I attended two different shows that day; The Australian Ready To Wear and The Sachin & Babi shows. There were many different designers debuting their collections during the Australian Ready To Wear shows. However, the one that impressed me the most and really stood out was CON ILIO, an Australian high end fashion label designed in Melbourne. His gowns were beautiful, with a lot of texture and high quality fabrics. The color palette was on point. I'll never forget that emerald green satin tail. The Sachin & Babi presentation left me wanting to stay in my summer mood all year long. I'm guessing pastels and lace are here to stay, which is something I'm happy about. Inspired by ballet, all the silhouettes are feminine, airy full of pattern. I've never seen live ballerinas in a presentation before. Lovely.

  • Day 2

  • || MARAM Dress ||
  • || Okhtein Clutch ||
  • || Forever 21 Boots ||

Day 2: I attended Misha Collection, Lisa N. Hoang and Pamella Roland Shows. All three shows WOW'ed me with their collection. Trends to look out for are cut outs in the silhouette, metallics, polka dots, feminine silhouettes, slits, sheer and lace fabrics and that plunging neckline. 

  • DAY 3

  • || Missguided Shirt ||
  • || Topshop Boyfriend Jeans ||
  • || Steve Madden Shoes ||
  • || Ted Baker Satchel ||

Day 3: I attended Layana Aguilar's show. I loved the color palette and the coolness in her collection. The floral bombers and neoprene fabric played so well with the silhouettes.

  • Day 4

  • || Express Top ||
  • || Mango Pants ||
  • || Rebecca Minkoff Clutch ||
  • || Steve Madden Heels ||

Day 4: I attended Leanne Marshall, ARTISTIX and Anniesa Hasibuan. All three of them displayed three different cultures. Leanne Marshall representing femininity and soft, floral dresses. ARTISTIX by Greg Polisseni and directed by Andy Hilfiger representing art with a Rock & Roll theme. Anniesa Hasibuan representing Islam, she was the first designer to have models walk down with hijab. All three were super different but definitely inspiring. 

  • Day 5

  • || Ahl Masr Dress ||
  • || Target Clutch ||
  • || Steve Madden Heels ||

Day 5: I attended Monique L'huiller and TEMRAZA. I loved Monique's collection from start to end. The color palette, plunging necklines and floral patterns were stunning. TEMRAZA stunned the crowd with her pharaonic collection, full of detailed hand sewn beaded work with plunging necklines, sexy slits and textured capes. 

Day 6

  • Day 7

  • || Urban Outfitters Dress ||
  • || Nike Shoes ||
  • || Rebecca Minkoff Clutch ||

Day 7: I attended the second presentation of Donna Karan's line Urban Zen. The collection, also known as The Alchemist Collection was laid out so nicely. It reminded me of bedouins and desert. The collection debuted was for F/W 16 and consisted of woolen jackets and dark colors. Loved it.
