Fashion Show Playlist: The Walk Fashion Show in Miami, held Saturday, December 3rd, was full of unique designs, original looks, fresh faces and talent.  Designers showcased everything from wearable art- hand painted denim- to swimwear and evening-wear. Fashion is a form of art, self expression, not only in the way a designer creates and shows…

Rihanna X Dior Sunglasses

First, Manolo Blahnik, now Dior Sunglasses, later- Beauty…Rihanna is on yet another roll, now a commercial one.  The influencer takes to creative design collaborations sure to sell, sell, sell.  While I thought the Manolo boots were a bit much, they’ve appeared in music videos and fashion magazines alike…I’m sure these sunnies will appear similarly, as…

Givenchy Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016

The Givenchy Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016 collection was a mix of the unwearable and originality met with attention to detail. Ill-fitting party streamer and fringe dresses added volume to the natural waistline and did nothing for the models. The mirror mosaic reveal beneath black beaded zipper paneled blazer was a unique twist on blazers similar…

Fendi Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016

Romantic, feminine, with flowing embellished and embroidered dresses and coats seemingly inspired by Asian trends and mixed with story book illustrations, the Fendi Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016 collection was ornate and delicate, and rather graphic as well.  While I didn’t like the blue cape I loved the art nouveau illustrations on it. **Warning- Graphic description:  I…

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

The Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week runway show melded high fashion with athletic inspiration, made evident in the sleeves and cut of dresses and pullovers. Leather pants, jackets and coats were paired with silk dresses and skirts, fur, and cropped jackets. Remember the halfsie fingerless gloves from SS16? They’ve seemingly inspired leather finger-wrap…

Valentino Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

The Valentino Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week runway show was romantic, delicate, and feminine with light flowing and frilly looks in tulle, silk and chiffon contrasting the heavier or hard-edged- leather and metal plating, patent leather, velvet, and wool.  Valentino PFW FW16 AH16 embodied this ballerina princess warrior, who is leather and armor clad one…

Granny Globetrotter: Chanel Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

The Chanel Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week runway show was oh so old…I wouldn’t be surprised if that was mother of mother of pearl honey. It looks so dated, boring, period…they should make a perfume called “Moth Ball.”  Tweed, season after season, decade after decade…it will soon have a 100th anniversary! Switch it up Chanel!   Chanel…

Runway Beauty Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

Runway Beauty Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week seemed to have the same formula show to show- bold eyes contrasting a nude face and lips, with the exception of Saunt Laurent, which went 80’s full face, and Dior and  Yohji Yamamoto, which went the opposite direction with black lips and nude or lined eyes. The runway…

Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week  collection had this strange 80’s air about it, the cocktail dresses, the shoulders, the styling… it’s the third show in PFW to invoke the era.  We know Saint Laurent has embodied the 80’s and Punk recently, but this is less hard edged and more era gone by.  The…

Zuhair Murad Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16 AH16

Zuhair Murad Fall/Winter 2016 Paris Fashion Week was as fabulous as is expected for the designer- sheer dresses with contrast strips created a graphically striking effect.  There were beading and sequin embellishments galore- and the patch inspired look we’ve seen attempted and less well executed at other runway shows as executed perfectly.  The runway beauty featured…
