Irina Shabayeva

Some of my favorite pieces from the Season 6 Project Runway Winner, Irina Shabayeva Spring 2012 show at the Audi Showroom on Park Ave. Loving the translucent gel trench, knit shawl, and body conscious cocktail dresses with cutouts and lace up ties. These looks are great for a night on the town with all of your gal pals. 

Maynard

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/29442312]A Look at a new and exciting line, Maynard. Maynard is created by designer Donna Potter and stylist Jia Li. The line is sexy and strong, a balancing act between the masculine and feminine, old and young. My favorite picks are the Rayon Knit with Powermesh, Jumpsuit and the Washed Silk Iomud Tunic. Take a look for yourself, and find your favorites. 

Eryn Brinie & Kai-aakmann Spring 2012 Showcase

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of previewing the  Spring 2012 lines of Eryn Brinie and Kai-aakmann. I was given a tour by Sunwoo Lee, the Marketing and PR Director of Acrex, Inc. She spoke to me about the essence of both lines after her meeting with the very cute and fabulous boys of Out Magazine.

Eryn Brinie Spring 2012 Showcase

After speaking with Sunwoo Lee, the Marketing and PR Director at Acrex, Inc. I learned that Eryn Brinie's line this season is about the lightness. It is very feminine yet modern. It is prim without being stuffy. The line has a free spirited attitude. The pieces can be worn to meetings, but it is not corporate wear, yet with the ability to look professional, put together but not dowdy. It is always chic. These pieces can be worn straight from the office to a cocktail party.   

The line this season is inspired by Actress Jane March of the film L'Amant/The Lovers. The film is very sexy. Jane wears H line dresses with men's hats and dancing shoes. The look is playful, sexy, yet innocent. Checkout the trailer and see for yourself.

Kai-aakmann Spring 2012 Showcase

According to Sunwoo Lee, Kai-aakmann's line has a military element, but it is not as strong as last season's line. This season is more about soft tailoring with nice surprises like pleating in the back, opaque sleeves, and canvas twill against delicate chiffon. There is also a lot of great summer kints. The Men's line is more about color and fun.

Camilla Franks

During Fashion Week I had the pleasure of meeting Australian Designer, Camilla Franks. She is absolutely lovely, and if you adore Kaftans she is the designer for you. She uses beatiful prints creating lively and exotic pieces that are so easy to wear. I think Camilla is just Fab! I am a fan of color, loose fitting clothing, and Camilla Franks.

Nomia

First look at  the 29 year old New York based designer Yara Flinn's, Nomia Spring 2012 Collection presented at New York Fashion Week. I'm loving the modern yet feminine collection. The soft materials are draped to perfection creating a strong and sophisticated presence. These pieces are so urban chic! I'm dying to pull for a photo shoot.

The Kardashians at Sherri Hill

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian sitting front row at the Sherri Hill Show  at the Trump Tower in support of their little Sis, Kendall Jenner taking to the catwalk during New York Fashion Week. The clothes were ultra glamorous, a model slipped in front of Kim, and I think my camera was a little star struck. I wish the pics were a bit sharper, but whatevs! Oh and I spotted Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee. xo Q

Samantha Pleet

I was late to Samantha Pleet's Presentation. My intern/roommate gave me the wrong address. I ended up on Canal St. I strongly dislike Canal St. Anyway Samantha is an amazing Brooklyn based designer who I just adorn. Checkout her feature on MTV Style.
