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!

Jenna Lyons Named Woman of The Year by Glamour

4 Nov

It is no surprise that super stylish creative director of J.Crew, Jenna Lyons, was named one of Glamour’s women of the year.  The 44-year-old inspiration started as a fashion assistant at J. Crew in 1990, worked her way up the old fashioned way and was named creative director of the mega-brand in 2007.  Myself and many others know J.Crew would NOT be where they are today without Lyons, it’s just a fact.  Not only is she the brains behind the brand, but also their most recognizable model.  Her style is uniquely casual yet polished, she has mastered the balance of masculine and feminine pieces while mixing textures effortlessly like no other. Thick rimmed glasses, middle parted hair and red lips were also a signature part of her look long before the trendy hipster crowds claimed it.  She is a style icon without a doubt, Glamour is spot on with this one!
