On September 8th, Noon by Noor held their Spring Summer 2017 runway collection at Skylight Clarkson during New York Fashion Week. Alexa Chung, Happily Grey, and a few other big league bloggers rolled out to attend the early morning show.
Since it was the first official day of NYFW, the staff was still getting a hang of seating, which inevitably lead me to wait patiently on the sideline. I didn’t mind though because I got to meet two awesome ladies, one happened to be UK Vlogger Fleur de Force. We chatted about the start of Fashion week and what shows we were covering. Fleur was flown out by MAC cosmetics and Morocco oil for events. We exchanged funny stories before grabbing a few front row seats.
When the runway show began, I quickly saw why the venue was packed. The clothes were beautiful and flowed effortlessly around the model’s quick strides. The light, neutral fabrics slightly graze the models form. I love the minimal details in each look, just a hint of embellishment. Very soft and feminine. From the collection alone, I am pretty certain this upcoming Spring I will be rocking a train of some sort.
What piece do you love most? Let me know in the comments below.
On July 13th at Skylight Clarkson Sq, Nick Graham presented his collection at Men’s New York Fashion Week. The theme was our men in Havana and not a detail was missed. Prior entering the venue, flight attendants handed out brochure’s describing the show as well as a sweet voucher to fly to Havana yourself!
Once inside a beautiful band welcomed guests with authentic Cuban sounds. To open the show, women clad in custom garb came out and danced. When the runway models came out, they not only walked the runway but found a spot to stand for the duration of the show. Under each model’s standing spot was the description of the piece worn. For bloggers and buyers, this is brilliantly for taking additional photos after the runway ended.
The clothes themselves were beautifully designed, showing you can never go wrong with a great structured suit. It was fun to see the rich colors and patterns used to take the basic silhouette of a suit to a new level. The reason I love menswear is how easily it can translate to women’s wear. I steal menswear concepts all the time to create a minimalist and sophisticated look. Nick Graham definitely created pieces I could totally see myself sporting.
Yesterday was the first Monday in May, which only means one thing – MET GALA! After work, I packed my camera and rushed up to the Upper East Side to watch as the guests arrived. As I made my way to 83rd and 5th avenue around 6pm, I was greeted by several other eager fans waiting to see what their favorite celebrities would be wearing to the ultra-exclusive Met Gala. With the theme of Man Vs Machine, I was on the look out for metallic, intricate designs, and of course larger than life dresses.
While looking for the best viewing spot, I heard a familiar voice “oh hey, Ellese.” It was a close friend I hadn’t seen in years! We chatted for a few minutes about how she is working for The Met and how blogging was going for me. It was the best sighting of the night to see her face! It also reminds me how small this island really is.
Back to the Met Gala, I left my friend to get the perfect standing spot to shoot these photos of attendees jumping out of their cars to make their way through the red carpet. It was interesting some celebrities didn’t want to be caught on camera until they made it to the stairs ( ahem Wiz Khalifa). So here are a few celebs that gave us fans a little bit of love and fashion.
Michael De Paulo presented his Fall/Winter 2016 collection during New York Fashion Week and it is breathtaking. It is hard to resist the glamour evoked in each evening gown and the multitude of textures of feathers, satins, tulle and sequins De Paulo combines. It is amazing to see a hand beaded bodice paired with ruffled fabric or delicately placed feathers. By keeping the color scheme in a jeweled tone, the formal wear carries a regal impression.
The marriage between feminine and masculine is my all time favorite style. A boxed jacket with a floral blouse or wide leg slacks with a lace top. The pairing of menswear with a delicate touch is perfection.Which is why I fell in love with the designer Sarah Seven.
