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.
[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.
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.
On Wednesday, October 12 I was invited to the exclusive grand opening of Jean Michel Cazabat's boutique located on 350 Bleecker St. in the heart of the ever so stylish West Village. Jean Michel is known for making beautiful and sexy footwear beloved by fashion insiders. He began his career as a Buyer and Creative Director of the iconic French shoe brand Charles Jourdan. Now, with his first US boutique Jean Michel is creating a movement of his own. The store is said to be inspired by his own Soho loft, and I have to admit I felt quite at home on the red plush ottoman. The night was magical with the French DJ setting the tone, models passing the bubbly, and A-listers such as Singer Maxwell, Designer Naeem Khan, Bergdorf Goodman's Linda Fargo, and Vogue's Darling Shala Monroe filling the crowd. What a success, what a night to remember!
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.
