First of Fashion Week

September 9, 2012

Okay I'm so sorry that I've been M.I.A. lately but college has been taking up so much time and it has been so much fun just really busy but now that rush is over (I'm an Alpha Chi Omega, everyone!) and I've gotten acquainted with campus things will get a little less hectic.

Anyways, FASHION WEEK is back! and I am so excited to start talking about runway shows again. has updated their website and I am loving it! The new features makes it so much more convenient to glace through a fashion show and many of the shows are being uploaded in real time!

While you go check out how awesome the new is, here's some of my favorites from the first few days of New York Fashion Week.

Creatures of the Wind

In their first actual runway show (past seasons have all been presentations) designers Shane Gabier and Chris Peters have produced a pack-a-punch collection of patterns, bright pastels, and cool cuts. The brand's recent J. Crew collaboration seems to have influenced the style in today's show, but Creatures of the Wind will always be an eclectic collection not for the faint of heart.

Rachel Comey

Crop tops, high-waisted shorts, and global influences were all spied on Comey's runway in New York. These trends have been gathering steam on the streets, but the way Comey has translated street style to runway ready-to-wear is remarkable. The old thought was that runways influenced street wear, but with the onflux of street style blogs, the everyday wearer has in turn become the influencer, and it is quite intriguing to witness this reversal in trendsetting in action.


The masters of downtown cool go for a muted edginess this time around. Mint-olive camouflage prints, distressed army jackets, ocean-ripple denim: there's certainly a feminine utilitarian vibe going on here. There's also a sense of escapism in these urban clothes that makes you feel like you could be transported anywhere while walking on the streets of SoHo.

Lisa Perry

Lisa Perry is a fan of the mod movement. That is no secret. And with posters of the Beatles in the background of her presentation, spring will be no exception. Perry knows how to make a simple shift exceptional by adding bright splashes of color, and while terribly Twiggy-esque, other looks like the color-blocked maxi are so timeless that fashionable fans of mod will be clamoring for it come March.

Prabal Gurung

While not as captivating and stunning as Fall 2012, Prabal Gurung is quickly proving that he is more than just a one-season wonder. Using his signature technological prints and innovative cuts, Prabal stunned yet again. I'm waiting for a celebrity to try (and probably fail) to pull off that blood-red ruffled flapper dress.
