It’s not often I say this, actually I don’t think I ever really have said this about any designer before – I absolutely love Zang Toi. This was the second time I attended a Zang Toi runway show, and it was amazing. He received a standing ovation at the end of the show. The collection was elegant and luxe all at the same time, using gold detailing here and there, and accentuating with furs. Take a look at the photos below. To read more about the collection, view my article on Examiner.
Today my friend and I attended a presentation by the designer of the fashion brand LITKE. The collection used quilting patterns with embroideries from India, and cottons from Japan and Switzerland. Check out the photos below.
Today I headed to the Reem Acra (womenswear) show after work, and saw some beautiful pieces – very glamorous dresses and gowns. Here are 2 photos from the show.
Yesterday I took the day easy and attended one show – Joanna Mastroianni (womenswear). The designs were beautiful, and in attendance was fashion icon Iris Apfel. Today’s style quote it by the designer Joanna Mastroianni herself.

Today I skipped my afternoon shows because of the snow in NYC (lazy Saturday), but made it to 2 at night – Alon Livne (womenswear), and one of my favorites, Venexiana (womenswear). I’ve never seen Alon Livne before, but his presentation was very “sci-fi” to me (might be because of the Firefly marathon I recently had). It was very visually interesting to look at. Venexiana I have seen a few times before, and was so excited to see again – so many beautiful gowns and furs this collection! Check out the photos below.
LOVED this Autumn/Fall 2013 collection by Ann Yee. Full of sweaters and pants, everything was effortlessly stylish yet comfortable. I had the chance to interview the designer Ann Yee (who is from Philly, my hometown!). Check out the article I wrote after the interview here.
Today was the official first day of fashion week. I attended 2 lovely shows – Kimberly Ovitz (women’s wear), and Timo Weiland (men’s wear). I’ve really been getting into men’s wear lately. Who knows why (working for a men’s magazine may have something to do with it), but nonetheless, I loved the Timo Weiland presentation tonight (the handsome male models may have had something to do with that…).
The show had a great navy sweater with a cute dachshund on it, which caught my eye right away – it is this Friday’s Most Wanted piece. The way to my heart is with puppies and dogs…seriously. If I was any good at science, I would be a vet. Anyway, take a look at the photos from the shows below.
Hello friends. The first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has ended (I kept my schedule light today with only 2 shows), so I wanted to share a few photos with you. These are from two presentations – Rita Vinieris (womenswear) and Pyer Moss (menswear). I hope you enjoy!

Today’s style quote has been inspired by an amazing runway show I saw last night, where designer Zang Toi showcased his Summer/Spring 2013 collection during MBFW (he received a standing ovation!). I was truly blown away by his pieces. Zang Toi has a rare talent, where he is able to design beautiful clothing that is modern and unique, but at the same time chic and classy. I took a ton of photos at the show, but unfortunately none of them came out very well due to the lighting. The photos below are some of my favorite pieces from Zang Toi’s website. Check it out here.
Here are some of Zang Toi’s Spring/Summer 2012 Trends:
- Colors – off-white, black, grey, light pink, light yellow, lavender.
- Women’s and men’s pin-striped suits.
- Full length gowns with low-cut backs.
- Long jackets which reach mid-calf, with a solitary button right below the chest.
- High collars.
- Tulle and sequined accents.
In celebration of last night’s Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) in NYC, I headed over to an event at Bergdorf Goodman. In addition to the delicious cupcakes they were serving (seriously, delicious), almost literally walking into Rachel Zoe (clumsy as always), I had a chance to look at all the high-end fashion. This week’s most wanted, is this gorgeous teal colored Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF) dress that I saw at the store. Not only do I love the bright color for fall, but I can imagine pairing this dress with a lovely pair of brown or muted orange boots, and some textured stockings.
I will be covering a few shows and events during this week’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (MBFW). If you’d like to read any of this coverage, please visit my Examiner.com column. While the majority of my article’s will be posted on Examiner.com, I will make sure to dedicate a post with Spring/Summer 2013′s latest runway trends and photos. Have a very happy weekend!
