the wonderful people and outfits of nyfw

        One of my favorite aspects of fashion week has got to be just observing what everyone is wearing. Glamorous or laid back, these people certainly create their own show, styling themselves with a unique creativity. These are not the models on the runway but the people who strut the clothing out on the streets. Photographers would flock to these people to get a photo and so I had to get my bite in too. What do you think? What would you wear to New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week?

nanette lepore

          Last wednesday I got to see the Nanette Lepore show at Lincoln Center. Neon colors flew down the runway captivating the entire audience. Each look was bright and youthful giving way to a fun filled spring. With the combination of live music by Sam Bisbee and beautiful clothing of Nanette Lepore, the atmosphere was one of a youthful brillance. Does this make you want to take on the neon splash?

First look down the runway definitely set the tone for the entire show. Bright florescents all the way.

Citron is usually not my color of choice but somehow on this runway it worked. Otherwise I'm not sure how many people could pull this electric look off on the streets.

The contract of the light blue lace and tangerine dress is what caught my attention. What about yours?

In person this tangerine embroidered top showed movement with it's fringe-like bottom detailing..

Pretty lace, I must in spring.

The cutout on the back of this dress is what made me love it.

Bright spring prints.

This dress was amazing in person, the splash floral print and flow of fabric moved beautifully.

Herve Leger by Max Azria

   Tuesday afternoon I had the pleasure of volunteering for the Herve Leger by Max Azria show. My first Mercedes-Benz fashion week show and it was amazing. Watching the models come out and watching the production of the entire show gave me goosebumps. This season Azria demonstrated a tribal and gladiator type look with tall strapped gladiator boots and gold, silver, black, nude and white. Gold hardware and cutout details gave the dresses an edge. While bandage dresses are not new for the Herve Leger collections, these were still eye captivating and drew the audiences attention. Especially the maxi white dress, the last off the runway and my personal favorite.

Fierce and powerful were words used to describe the collection.

The tribal inspiration lives on through the season.

Nudes have become a spring favorite. It's hard to go wrong.

I love the wide fringe detailing. It creates a playful texture. 

My absolute favorite dress of the show. This looked beautiful going down the runway.
