London Fashion Week Favorites!(and a quick definition of fashion week, for those who don’t know)

17 Sep

Week two of the month-long fashion frenzy around the globe is wrapping up and I have some favorites to share.

I was asked to explain fashion week by quite a few people, so here it goes…….Fashion “month” occurs twice a year and is a showcase of designers Spring/Summer collections and Fall/Winter collections. These collections are shown in advance giving buyers time to fill orders and stock up just in time for the season.  For example, right now it’s Fall and the designers are showing their upcoming Spring/Summer collection, and during Spring, designers showcase their fall/winter collections.  Notice I said fashion MONTH earlier- that is because fashion week takes place over four consecutive weeks in four different countries, totaling a month of FUN! Is there an order? YES fashion week starts in New york, then jumps across the pond to London, followed by Milan and ending in Paris! There you have it fashion week/month summed up.

There are also other smaller scale fashion weeks across the globe, but the four countries listed are the main players in the fashion game!

Let’s get to my London fashion week faves!

NYFW Alexander Wang/ Jill Stuart F/W’14!

9 Feb

Alexander Wang’s main strength was definitely outerwear. The coats in this collection were nothing short of amazing. There were so many gorgeous button and pocket details!  The stiff side swept hair and the “no eyebrow” look created an androgynous feel that left me wanting more.

AW1 AW2 Fanny packs again!AW3 AW4 AW5 AW6 AW7 AW8

Jill Stuart’s collection was  feminine and flirty. I couldn’t get enough of the sparkles and textures!!!!!!! The models “undone” hair and fresh faces were  beautiful as well. So pretty!
