image

Australian designer Michelle Aznavorian behind Misha Collection presented a stunning show which opened with supermodel Jourdan Dunn. Her sexy silhouettes are inspired by the party scene from Studio 54, New York’s popular night club in the 70s and fashion icons such as Iman, Jerry Hall and Bianca Jagger.

Sleek and sophisticated, her collection showcased lace and feather trimmed dresses, leather bodycon shifts, silk pantsuits, metallic ensembles and shimmering gold fringed slips to femme fatale red and leopard print trench coats. Jourdan Dunn closed the show with a sparkling draped silver dress with a daring high slit. These red carpet worthy outfits are perfect for the It girl who wants to make at grand entrance at every party.

It’s no wonder celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, the Kardashians and Rosie Huntington-Whitely are fans of the label. Her star studded list now extends to Olivia Culpo, Whitney Port and Alana Hadid who attended the show.

Charles Youssef

CFDA awardee Charles Youssef presented his Fall/Winter 2016 collection at Milk Studios during New York Fashion Week. His label represents the metropolitan, modern woman and emphasises on elegance, form and function. Set in a dreamy landscape, his fall collection exuded ethereal beauty and luxury balanced with the minimalistic, pleated style of Japanese origami.
His attention to detail, construction and tailoring is absolutely impeccable! Dramatic voluminous shapes, billowy sleeves, full flowing skirts were paired with nipped waists to accentuate the female form.

 

For his fall collection he used mostly white to add a refreshing contrast to black and shades of indigo, purple, grey and fuchsia. Satin skirts were paired with cashmere sweaters, crisp white collared shirts with tailored pants and dresses with exquisite pleated detailing and patterns.

 

I loved the structured origami inspired white coats and the white, purple and black colour blocked dress with organza sleeves. Which one of the outfits caught your eye? Let me know in the comments below.

Polish Fashion Week and Interview with Nigel Barker

 

 

The Polish American Fashion Foundation in New York held a fantastic fashion show in the New Museum last September during New York Fashion Week to showcase the works of young and talented Polish designers on an international stage. The foundation hopes to encourage young designers and develop the future of Polish fashion both in Poland and abroad.

The event attracted many photographers and fashion icons, including talented celebrity photographer Nigel Barker whom I had the chance  to interview! He talked about how much he supports the Polish fashion scene and how he’s also planning to making a movie and writing a cookbook with his mother! Can’t wait to see it. I was so thrilled to have this once in a lifetime opportunity as I am a big fan of America’s Next Top Model, that show was an inspiration and learning curve for me when I pursued a career in fashion and modeling.

Three designers, the duo Paprocki & Brzozowski, Viola Spiechowicz and MIA presented their Spring 2016 collections. Paprocki & Brzozowski’s collection with its elegant silk dresses, flowing chiffon skirts and brocade suits was inspired by the Renaissance.

 

 

Dramatic voluminous shapes, white and pastel shades were a constant theme for Viola Spiechowicz’s label, a clean minimalist approach for spring. She uses nettle, a unique material for her fabric as it helps hold the outfits’ shape better.

MIA rocked it out with a sleek collection using mostly black and white with clean cut lines. Their collection was inspired by architecture as you can see from the modern construction of the outfits.

I hope you like the designs from this inspiring fashion show! I noticed that the Polish have a refined and minimalist taste in fashion. I’m forward to seeing more Polish designers showcasing their work on the runway in the future!

Rocky Gathercole Fall 2016 Art Hearts Fashion

Hollywood designer Rocky Gathercole ended the finale of Art Hearts Fashion Week with big bang!

The Filipino designer renowned for his outrageous, avant garde designs dazzled the audience with his Fall/Winter 2016 collection of a golden mirage of fantasy pieces inspired by Greek and Roman mythology.

 

Models strutted down the runway in a glamorous array of works of art, from larger than life headpieces in the shape of golden Aries horns, Minnie Mouse ears to glittery cage corset dresses and outlandish bustiers embellished with dragons, cobras and firebirds.

He also designed some sexy intricately beaded bodysuits with gold fringes that moved with mesmerising perfection as the models sashayed down the runway. His stunning dresses also had full tiered skirts and elaborate metallic bustier decorations.

The men looked like fierce Roman gladiators, with laurels on their heads and golden chains hanging on their buff bodies. One of them wore a huge shoulder shield and a golden deer skull over his black shorts.

 

The finale dress was a showstopper, a full length costume of a beautiful lace gown and an extravagant golden Phoenix headpiece complete with wings.

I have never been so amazed by a fashion show, every outfit was so extraordinary, exquisitely crafted and larger than life. They look like they belong to a fantasy Hollywood movie about Gods and warriors. You have to see the outfits to believe it. I’m so blessed to have witnessed a visual reverie of legends come to life.

Thank you Art Hearts Fashion Week for another stunning finale!

Stello Official Fashion Show

Stello Official brought us to the far East with their latest collection called Yuki-Onna. The dynamic collection is inspired by Japanese fashion, with metallic samurai-like silhouettes complete with shoulder pads and spiked accessories. Some of the sheer dresses are embellished with oriental floral motifs and patterns.

Flowing pants, kimono-style ensembles, structured bustiers were also part of the collection. The use of cut-outs and high slits added a sensuous element to the outfits. The color palette of black, gold, red and silver made a strong impact with the use of  lustrous leather, silk, lace and metallic fabrics. The men also wore tailored pants with metallic jackets.  The model’s sleek hairstyles were accented with chopsticks that twisted their hair into elegant half up-dos.

A memorable moment was the appearance of a contortionist who walked on the runway with her body bent over backwards at a steep 45 degree angle so her hands touched the floor, something that I thought was humanly impossible.

 

The collection blends sensuality and femininity with a tough edge. It made a fashion statement that challenged the idea of Asian fashion – it doesn’t have to be conservative, it can be elegant, flowing and provocative at the same time.

Mimi Tran Art Hearts Fashion

Vietnamese fashion designer Mimi Tran showcased her Fall Winter 2016 Optical Illusion collection at Art Hearts Fashion Week. Mimi Tran grew up in Paris and her Vietnamese heritage created a sophisticated influence of both east and west in her designs.

Her collection exuded elegance and Parisian chic while accentuating the female figure. I love her attention to detail as the dresses were exquisitely embellished with lace, sequins, beads and floral appliques to create beautiful patterns which is probably how the collection got its name.

Solid shades of royal blue, gold and the bright oriental floral motifs accentuated the primary color black, which is also the color that the French love to wear. Fine fur stoles and long leather gloves completed the look of  timeless glamour.

For the finale, Miss new York walked out in an understated yet elegant white lace wedding gown.

 

What are your favorite looks from the show? Let me know in the comments below.

Catch Michelle

 

London fashion designer Mihaela Taleaga presented her fashion label Catch Michelle, an eclectic mix of avant garde and ready to wear designs at Art Hearts Fashion Week at Angel Orenzanz Foundation.

Inspired by Sigmund Freud and surrealism movements, she has transformed her dreams into abstract paintings and prints on her fabrics. The imagery on the paintings and prints on her clothes are provocative and whimsical all at the same time.

 

Her current Fall/Winter 2016 collection “Dream Walker” comprised of bright colors, strong pastels and her surreal paintings that created interesting patterns on the outfits. Oversized sweaters, dramatic sleeves, textured knits, tailored pants and voluminous skirts added another dimension of complex shapes and silhouettes.

The models wore vivid impressionist make up, as if their faces are the designer’s canvas and enlarged artist tools as accessories to complete the look.

 

Catch Michelle made a bold, thought-provoking fashion  statement as her collection on the show looked like intriguing walking works of art. I couldn’t help but take a second look at her outfits to wonder about the meaning of her surreal prints.  What are your thoughts?

Walter Mendez Fall 2016

13237829_10208186830481242_8247746909685187906_n

 

 

Walter Mendez captivated the audience with his stunning collection of  evening wear. As the svelte models glided down the runway in elegant, sweeping gowns, mysterious black lace masks and sparkling tiaras, I felt as if I was transported back in time to a royal ball in Venice.

.

13177200_10208186832641296_5487674674993185689_n

The magnificent gowns accentuated the female curves with nipped waists that flared out into sweeping mermaid trains and shorter hemlines with flirty flounces. Billowy capes and extravagant origami folds elevated the dramatic effect of some of the dresses.

13179099_10208186813000805_1442922799984032511_n

All of the dresses look so opulent with the swathes of  lush silk, lace and brocade fabric in rich shades of  striking red, elegant black, deep indigo, glittering golds and yellows. Elaborate lace, glittering crystal and gold embellishments in baroque patterns added another element of granduer.

13178053_10208186829841226_5655731523513544362_n

The magnificent gowns accentuated the female curves with nipped waists that flared out into sweeping mermaid trains and shorter hemlines with flirty flounces. Billowy capes and extravagant origami folds elevated the dramatic effect of some of the dresses. Some of the more seductive dresses had translucent bustiers and bodysuits decorated with strategically crystals and high slits.

I can clearly see that Walter Mendez celebrates the femininity and empowerment of women with his  glamourous designs that flatter the female form. Every dress was so exquisite that it looked as if it was made for a queen or a Hollywood star.

It’s no wonder why he is one of next top designers in Los Angeles and has dressed celebrities such are Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez for red carpets.

Charlotte Ronson MBFW Fashion Show

13413668_10208389109298086_2803999176709702151_n

 

British designer Charlotte Ronson showed off her fall ready-to-wear collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Lincoln Center. Her fashion forward designs are a favourite among celebrities like Blake Lively, Nicole Richie, Kate Moss and Rihanna. Speaking of celebrities, Paris Hilton was one of her front row attendees for the show and her sister celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson played the music for her show.

 

13007126_10208050268587280_1713148975318965540_n

 

Her collection featured a mix of femininity layered with an eclectic edge. Dusky florals are paired with muted colours and floaty chiffon blouses contrasted with streamlined jackets and form fitting skirts. Slouchy knits, coloured tights, culottes and sheath dresses are also included in the collection. My favourite outfits are the green sequinned dress and the dark chiffon floral jumpsuit.
The collection sported a more sophisticated, grown-up vibe which makes it perfect for the office and a night out after for all of us busy women out there!
