Weekend in Fashion

Happy Monday! I feel like the weekend just flew by! I've been trying to watch the Olympic Games and keep up with all that's happening in NYC - it's pretty overwhelming! But let's go on to NYFW.

Lots and lots of great fashion shows happened over the weekend and I am excited to share a few of my favorites with you guys. I love that things can be so crazy in our lives and in our world but the 20 minutes that you spend watching a runway show or even viewing photos of the clothes takes you away to a different place.

Christian Siriano
Ever since Christian Siriano burst onto the fashion scene during Season 4 of Project Runway I fell in love with his designs. He definitely has one of the personalities that is so unique and the creativity that comes out of him is just beyond! Friday Christian showed once again that he is definitely a force in this industry with his Fall/Winter RTW 2010 line. Along with using a color palette of mainly blacks, grays and silvers he added in several pants and suit options that were still extremely feminine. His attention to detail is impeccable and makes the garments look that much more beautiful. The last few looks were fancy frilly dresses which I really don't mind seeing in collections. However several critics were requesting more wearable looks. As for me, I'm all about the drama so bring on the fanciness! Loved it all!

BCBG Max Azria
As one of the first shows on the schedule the BCBG show might have felt a lot of pressure. Even if they did the collection was FAB-U-LOUS! I loved the splashes of color (a little yellow here, a little blue there, how about some silver trim? Don't mind if I do!) and the addition of sparkles. Another amazing part of the BCBG show - every single piece was paired with a lightweight long sleeve t-shirt. Now who doesn't have one of those in their wardrobe right now? Thank you Max Azria for a little functionality!

Diane Von Furstenberg
Diane Von Furstenberg has been dressing women beautifully for 40 years. She's incredible smart, is aware of what works for women and continues to deliver amazing collections season after season. I love that she isn't afraid of color. She's known for using prints that aren't overwhelming loud but keep her looks from being too boring. This year, her Fall/Winter line was inspired by our other half - Men. Of her line and life she said: “I always wanted to live a man’s life in a woman’s body." Oxford booties, menswear blazers and chunky "Granddaddy" sweaters were evidence of comfortable men's style with feminine touches. Plus DVF's headwear is just to die for. I could live in a cold place just to wear those furry caps. Beautiful.

Okay - seriously I could go on forever and this post would be never ending. So I will just add one or two looks from a few other lines that were fantastic.

Jason Wu. Pink Carpet. Beautiful dresses. Enough said.

Landscapes and pictures from the Hubble Telescope inspired Lela Rose for her RTW line. I'd rename these two "Starry Starry Night" and "Water Droplets"

More updates to come - Plus a lot of designers are doing Webcasts - which I am so excited about! View a few of them here. I'd love to hear what your thoughts are! :)
