Inspected Trend: Yellow NYC


This season in New York many designers had a fleck of yellow splashed into their collections. It's highly appreciated that designers went ahead and brighten up a collection in some way in this cliche 'dark' times. It is fitting to know that designers are sending a optimistic message through their collections.

Vibrancy is in at Tibi

Tanya D at Tibi




It seemed like there was a bust of energy that was displayed on the runway that spreaded to the audience at Tibi. We all felt it even the photographers in the pit collectively cheered when Tanya D came out in the last look, the pink "snowmaiden gown" (seen above). I was on the edge of my seat admiring the color pallete of some of the looks; teal, pink, yellow all in flowy silk dresses, skirts and coats.

Karen Walker, the calm after the storm

Made it to the Karen Walker show this afternoon because of fashion obligation. I just had to. Karen Walker show is always great for people in the front row, music and of course the clothes . But before the lights dimmed and models strutting down the runway the standing room line was anxiously waiting to get in and grab a seat. As the Pr Guy slowly put his hands on the velvet rope to open up people quickly started to shove to get in almost knocking me down. I couldn't believe it people were literally climbing over chairs to get a better seat. Anyway after some of the standing room line people got settled... then the lights dimmed and the models came down the runway.

Graey by Janet Kim Fall 2009 Presentation



Janet Kim showed her line Graey at Morgan Court in a small loft over looking the Empire State building. Inside the loft however was her Fall 2009 presentation showing only a few pieces. I never heard of Graey or Janet Kim so I have to write that I was excited that I showed up at her presentation. Even though it wasn't an abundance of looks it was enough to show everyone her capability as an emerging designer.

BCBG Max Azria












Max Azria delighted the crowd this evening some people however were still reeling from the previous show that was Charlotte Ronson. The show started off with dresses in white flowed into silk jersey draped dresses in jewel tones to velvet draped dresses in jewels tones (ha!).
There were some dresses with geometric prints and puffy 3/4 sleeves paired with metallic leggings. There were two voluminous coats in the show to die for!
Sorry for the crappy pics :(

Geren Ford Fall 2009 Presentation + model down caught on video

Geren Ford presented her collection at the Milk studios to a slew of big name editors most of them came and went even before I could even take my camera out. I adored this collection of ultra femimine pieces of ruffles tops, leather vests and mini skirts. I also loved the use of the scarves so I was extra happy when I left the presentation the great pr girl handed everyone that attend a Geren Ford scarf.

However during my rounding out all the looks I caught on camera a model near collapsing on the platform. Watch the video below to see my effort of trying to help and how the model bounced back. Yay for her (sorry I have no clue what's her name).

Inspected Trend: Cut It Out

One last Spring 2009 inspected trend before the Fall 09 looks come down the runways or intimately shown in small venues.


Inspected Trend: Cut it out



I usually associate cut outs with my first grade snowflake art projects but these looks shows that designers can create shapes on the body just by precise slits and slices to the fabric. My favorite look from above would be by “those crazy girls” (a stylist said this to me) referring to Laura and Kate of Rodarte. They might be “crazy” but they know how to design, they know who to craft clothes based on the most intriquing inspiration. I'm still in love with their exoskeletons looks from the runway.

long exhale... let fashion week begin!!!
