It’s a little hard to see Sonya’s outfit since it was so dark inside at Lincoln Center. But as always I’m going to help you what our “Dress of the Week” is wearing: a beautiful gold Zara dress along with leggings and shoes from Aerosoles and a gorgeous Chanel handbag as her accessory. Thank you Sonya.
We just loved Glamo’s vintage outfit when we met him at Lincoln Center in New York City. The TV & fashion personality who could be catched at GDC, The Glamore Deluxe Company, showcased his vintage fur piece from the Garment District with these awesome red shoes and skinny blue jeans. We have to admit we liked his H&M handbag a lot too – it was a nice accessory to his streetstyle.
Nora Gasparian, the widely known MC and Editor of Hollywood’s insider journal ‘Hollyscoop‘ happend to be in New York for Fashion Week 2012 and ran right into our camerman while she was hailing a cab. She just looked so cute in her entire outfit – a red G-Star leather jacket, her sexy ankle booties and of course her beautiful Chanel handbag.
We hope you had a great time in New York and did enjoy the shows.
Last night we attended the Nomia Fall 2012 presentation which took place at “The Box” at Lincoln Center in New York.
The focus of Nomia’s collection was to show the chic, sophisticated and empowered woman. Yara Flinn, Nomia’s head designer therefore was showing a lot of classy dresses – long sleeved, without sleeves and sometimes with a finishing on the top that looked like a blouse. There were just a few leather jackets, two very sexy, seethrough leggings and even a slouchy, trendy pants in her collection. I would have loved to see more of these egdy designs which in my opinion would have made the collection much more outstanding.
The color palette was actually great – she used a lot of different colors like beige, red, olive green, blue and even pink which coddled up the too classy designs.
The flamboyant jewelry designer Heidi Gardner celebrated her first collection Creature Couture in New York City. The whimsical, dark, dangerous and sexy debut collection is inspried by both life and death. The designer believes that jewelry isn’t just an accessory but more an expression of everyone’s own personality. In fact it’s the idea that every human being has an inner creature fighting to cut loose from the standard, boring society.
Let me be completely honest with you – when I first got the invite I didn’t know what to expect but wanted to give it a shot anyway. I have to admit Heidi Gardner’s jewelry event at the Hotel Americano in Manhattan was the most memorable and interesting presentation I’ve ever seen.
It all started with an elevator ride to a hotel room for an intimate tour of the “Chop Shop”. I was literally flabbergasted when I saw the ongoing projection of the jewelry designs styled on organs, such as a heart, liver and tongue. The hotel room looked almost like a murder scene, blood covered walls and spattered floors, masked models who were wearing Heidi’s fearless jewelry designs resting on various organs spilling out of them.
It was amazing and I think you couldn’t have done a better job in transforming her inspiration in that presentation. Really well done Heidi!
On the second day of New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Katya Leonovich showcased her Fall 2012 collection at Lincoln Center. The Box, where the presentation took place was set up as a stationary display, showcasing the models on pedestals throughout the space with Leonovich’s colorful paintings (she’s also a painter, hence all the splashes of colors in her collections) hanging as their backdrop.
Katya Leonovich’s pieces were all wearable. The combination of leather and python patterns was just perfect to create an edgy and feminine look for the stylish woman. Not only was the designer playing with metallic, colorful prints and patterns but she also focused on a black, violet, olive, copper and white color palette in her current Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Since I’m a huge fan of the shoe designer Michael Antonio, I immediately recognized that Leonovich finished off all of her looks with his shoes.
Great job Katya. Keep it up! And for all of you who couldn’t attend her fall 2012 presentation here are some pictures of her beautiful designs.
Tibi’s fashion designer Amy Smilovic sent her Fall 2012 collection down the runway last Saturday, February 11th at Lincoln Center in New York. Effortless was her message for this season since minimalism and menswear played a central role – delivered through oversized wool coats, cropped sloutchy pants and structured crew-neck tops. Also, the colors black and cream/beige dominated her Fall collection.
Overall it was a great show, the clothes were absolutly wearable and therefore Tibi’s designer is on the right road. Two thumbs up for her!
Who didn’t know Lee Alexander McQueen, a British Fashion Designer known for his unusual, dramatic and unconventional designs with shock tactics. The emotional power and raw energy of his provocative fashion shows wrote history until he committed suicide in February 2010. And even now a year after his death McQueen still is one of the important fashion figure of this world.

We met Donald at Toni Francesc’s FW 2011 Fashion Show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. He was one of the attendant and waiting for Toni’s Show backstage. We immediately noticed him due to his stunning outfit. His Eli Tahari jacket and the namesake blazer underneath, combined with a Topman vest was just perfectly dressed. But the real eye-catcher was definitely the catchy red Robert Talbott tie and the way he was wearing it with a Vintage pin from the 40s. Congrats Donald, we couldn’t have done it better.
