Tom Ford Fall 2015

The Tom Ford FW15 collection looked like a stroll down memory lane- or alley rather, with looks inspiring 90’s fashion rejects.  It looks like he took different designers’ styles and said, what would it look like if they didn’t edit?  Cavalli inspired wild prints poorly executed, the boring side of Dolce and Gabbana.  Weird denim…

Bibhu Mohapatra Fall ’15

The Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2015 collection was impeccably executed, infused with modernity in the pattern play, with the brush strokes and stripes, and the cut and silhouette.    From the very beginning, with the black and white top, the attention to detail is this collection’s differentiation.  Gorgeous cut-out sheer detailed dresses in mustard and silvery lilac:…

Thomas Wylde Fall ’15

The Thomas Wylde Fall/Winter 2015 collection was fabulously versatile: jaw-dropping looks, unusual and original with the layering and zipper detail which seemingly allows one to transform a piece for added versatility.  The jackets with the layered hi-lo effect were gorgeous, and the back is removable!  I need a men’s version of this STAT!  The same…

Jill Stuart Fall ’15

Lustrous metallics in striped pants and a shirtdress, beautiful outerwear- particularly the ones on Mia Gruenwald and Waleska Gorczevski.  The 70’s were effectively evoked in the contrast sleeved dress and the black and white coat and skirt (center and right 2nd row).  I didn’t really get the black leather cut out dress or some of the…

Cynthia Rowley Fall 2015

Cynthia Rowley, the soft-spoken down to earth designer known for her prints, turned it out for Fall.  This is the girl you want to know at the party.  Interesting floral contrasting polkadots; gorgeous peekaboo sheer circle-patterned pants & dress; the light pink coat; the beautiful black, purple, and blue sheer dresses; and the finale sweetheart purple dress…

Richard Chai Love Fall ’15

Lovely layers, dark acceptable prints in stripes and gingam, relax fit pants, and a contrast of texture, matte versus sheen, all added to Richard Chai Love Fall ’15 collection’s fluidity and wearablilty.  The graphics and prints are dark enough that I’d feel comfortable incorporating this into a professional wardrobe.  The 70’s were incorporated in the green looks, and luckily…

Tadashi Shoji Fall 2015

What with the fabulous, sumptuous fabrics and flawless execution, the Tadashi Shoji Fall 2015 collection was a breath of fresh air reminding us why we tune in to Fashion Week.  Black tulle, gorgeous textured fabric on the black short dress, there was an elevated style in each look sent down the runway.  Simplicity is underrated. The sheer peacock…

Costello Tagliapietra Fall 2015

The Costello Tagliapietra Fall Winter 2015 collection did take part in the 70’s trend, however, some of the overall outfits looked a little like Woody from Toy Story.  This woman is trying to be chic but knows nothing about fit, proportion, or silhouette.  Speaking of proportion and silhouette, looks like the light purple draped dress…

Nicholas K

A sheer dress revealing a thong seems like it should catch Madonna’s eye.  A Fanny Messenger, a gorgeous grey pinstripe suit with long jacket, a sheer burnt copper dress with leather piping, unusual belting, and a unique off-the-shoulder necklace stood out of the collection.  Was there an ode to Stacy London of What Not to…

ZAC Zac Posen

Zac Posen, known for his gorgeous gowns, has seemingly watered down his designs for ZAC Zac Posen to the extent that they look like horrible dresses from the dust-bunny ridden back of the plus-size clearance section.  Other than the jackets, there’s absolutely nothing memorable or outstanding about the collection.
