Fashion Shenzhen at NYFW

Fashion Shenzhen made its Mercedes Benz Fashion Week debut showcasing its own elite designers: Deng Hao and Guoxin Xia from China’s garment district in Shenzhen. The audience at Lincoln Center was in for a bold treat.


Denghao’s provocative knits seem to be the love child of Missoni and Dolce & Gabbana. I love the bold colors and mandarin collar on this number. It doesn’t require much styling (other than a slip) because it is the perfect amount of pretty ‘as is.’

Xia Guoxin of Ellassay showed black and white with that perfect structured-and-androgynous-meets-ladylike-elegance look. This is totally modern ready-to-wear that is actually well, ready-to-wear. And I am swooning.
What do you think of these looks?


New York Fashion Week Instagram Diary

I had quite a few pictures that I didn’t post during my trip to NY for Fashion Week. I wasn’t clever enough to have the foresight to make a latergram diary, but running around the city all day combined with watching Buckwild at night prohibited me from posting these earlier. Hashtag, greatestblogger.
Our Chelsea offices are in this building. There’s a huge Anthropologie and spacious wine shop in Chelsea Market, so you can count on me requesting more assignments in NY soon.
Temperatures I am not accustomed to called for dressing in more layers than I thought reasonable.
Inside the Lincoln Center – drinking a latte and not looking at this car.
Applauding all of these well-dressed women in line with me for the BCBG show.
So happy to see beanies and grunge on the runway.
One thing I learned on this trip is that I do not have enough fur.
Bumped in to Rumi Neely. To say she inspires me is an understatement.
Stopped at the Rebecca Minkoff showroom for a meeting with the Social Media team there. It was buzzing and hectic as they frantically prepared for their NYFW show.
Meeting with Uri Minkoff, CEO of Rebecca Minkoff and super nice dude.
This weather is beautiful, but also quite bleak. Time to wear something bright.
Back at the office. Fro Yo and I are very close.
Anthropologie, 1 – Me, 0. Cozy lounge wear I picked up just in case I got stuck in NYC because of the looming blizzard.
Headed to the airport – optimistic my flight won’t be canceled.
   Somehow, I win. Gotcha Nemo.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 – BCBG Presentation

In case you were wondering what it’s like to be crammed in the back of a fashion show because your ticket is standing room only, here you go. If you ask me, it was absolutely amazing. Fur + just the right amount of grunge. Beanies are back in a major way (*fist pumping all my fellow ladies with crazy hair*) and given the blizzard that started moments after this show, we are in luck.
