NYFW Misha Collection Spring 2017

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.

If you’d like to get your hands on her ready to wear pieces, they are available at luxury retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom Revolve and Shopbop . Get ready to add some glamour and sparkle to your wardrobe!

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!

Met Gala 2016: Manus X Machina Press Preview

 

 

The Met Ball is one of the most star-studded and glamorous events of the year where celebrities, influential fashion icons and designers attend the unveiling of the Costume Institute’s new exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

I was lucky enough to attend the press preview in the morning before the gala. This year’s theme for the exhibition is called Manus X Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology.

 

image

 

 

Anna Wintour and museum curator Andrew Bolton gave an opening speech to tell us more about the the exhibition. Manus X Machina explores the co-relationship of couture that is made by hand (manus) and the machine (Machina).

 

image

 

 

Manus X Machina shows the history of how fashion has evolved over the years, from the founding of hand made haute couture, the invention of the sewing machine which has helped with the mass production of clothes, to the present day when technological advances such as 3D printing, laser cutting and computer graphics are used to create couture and ready-to-wear fashion.

 

image

 

The collection of 90 stunning ensembles features a diverse range of outfits from handcrafted haute couture,  to 3D printed designs from the top fashion labels in the world such as Christian Dior, Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen.

 

image

 

At the entrance, a magnificent Chanel wedding dress with a gold studded 20 feet long train made a grand impression. The dress is made of scuba knit while the baroque design on the train was hand drawn by Karl Lagerfeld and then digitally manipulated to create a randomised, pixelated pattern.

 

 

Other haute couture ensembles on display are adorned with hand-sewn embellishments, appliqués, sequins,feathers and flowers and excellent craftsmanship.

 

image

 

A great example are the ethereal Venus and Janun gowns from Christian Dior shown on the left that are hand appliquéd with tulle petals and hand embroidered with sequins. The Alexander McQueen dress on the right is decorated with beaded silver paillettes that were sewn by hand onto the dress.

 

image

 

Chanel had another breathtaking, ethereal wedding gown on display which is covered with at least 2500 handmade camellias and ostrich feathers, all sewn onto the dress by hand!

 

 

There are a wide range of futuristic dresses as well such as the gold metallic “Kaikoku” Floating dress designed by Hussein Chalayan. It is remote controlled on wheels, allowing it to float on the floor and release 50 crystal “pollen spores.”

 

 

The spiky, out-worldly headpiece and bolero ensembles befittingly entitled as ” Atmospheric Reentry” by Japanese designer Maiko Takeda were so fascinating to look at and reminded me of a science fiction movie. Maiko Takeda was also present at the preview, wearing another one of her mind-blowing headpieces. She explained that despite its futuristic appearance, the designs are made of hand-cut acetate fringes and acrylic squares that are all assembled by hand.

 

image

 

 

One of the outstanding ensembles that caught my eye is this “bird dress” designed by Iris Van Herpen. It is made from laser cut silicone “feathers”  that are stitched onto the outfit by hand, to create a magnificent cloak that a fantasy character would wear in a movie.

image

 

Gareth Pugh turned the humble drinking straw into a work of art, by embroidering hundreds of straws onto his outfits. That’s taking the idea of recycling everyday, overlooked items unto another level of awesomeness!

 

Alexander McQueen’s stunning “Cape Feather Dress,” designed my Sarah Burton was  inspired by the patterns on a moth’s wing. Although it looks as if the exquisite pattern was digitally printed, it was actually made up of thousands of feathers of varying colors, each and every feather being cut and stitched by hand onto the dress.

 

image

 

These are just a few of the examples of the fascinating and remarkable designs on display. It was enlightening to learn more about the evolution of fashion. I could only imagine the hours of hard labour and artistic direction behind every outfit.

 

image

 

To visit the exhibition, look for the Robert Lehman Wing and Anna Wintour Costume Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is only open to the public from May to August 14.  I am sure you will be enchanted by not only the beauty of these works of art, but you will also appreciate to learn more about the history of haute couture and the construction of every outfit. It is a must see for all fashionistas and aspiring fashion designers to get inspired!

Radmila Lolly Hope Music Video Shoot

13432346_10208397597430284_6700469073545241367_n

Radmila Lolly is an exceptional opera singer who is my regular client and a great friend of mine. She is a classically trained opera singer  and has been singing since the age of 6.  She has decided to make her approach to her music career more contemporary by infusing her operatic singing style into pop and house music.

These are some of her shots from her music video shoot for her 2nd single “Hope,” a romantic ballad composed by Julian de la Chica. The style of the video is set in the 1940s and exudes Old Hollywood Glamour.

The stylist Laurean Ossorio did an incredible job putting together the outfits! The exquisite, intricately beaded gowns are designed by Dany Tabet and the elegant jewelry from Misahara . Luxurious furs added another air of  opulence from that golden era.

Elegant pinned-up waves, smoky eyes and red lips complemented the vintage fashion direction we were going for.

13412967_10208407754964216_9182234105329600670_n

It was great working with such sweet and talented people. Our art director and videographer Rhonny Tufino did a phenomenal job directing the shoot and editing the video. With Radmila’s powerful voice, the poignant musical score and dramatic visuals, the music video is a rare gem that sets her apart from other artist.

IMAN Cosmetics in collaboration with GlambitionWomenThinkBIG™ and Dee & Co Group hosted a Glambition-Women Think B.I.G. Alter-Ego Round Table & Influencer event. GlambitionWomenThinkBIG™ is an organisation that aims to empower, inspire and educate aspiring business women through training and mentorships from successful business owners.

 

13266095_10208214233126291_5306840046310672762_n

 It was a great opportunity to learn more about having a successful business and empowering the many roles we have at work and in real life. The panel speakers and CEOs such as Andrea March, the co-founder of Women’s Leadership Exchange and Michelle Centeno talked about the challenges of women in the workplace and how they overcame it. The next panel included  Antonio Lizano from Paychex, Katherine Lynch of KIVa.org , Beth Goldberg of SBA.gov and Jennifer Jaques of Jacques Beaulieu LLP who shared their knowledge and advice on how to grow a successful business. Desiree Reid of IMAN Cosmetics and Robert Wilis of Universal Beauty Products are among the panel that discussed what makes a woman beautiful and how beauty inspires the alter egos that women play.

13221002_10208214230046214_4032629494184158236_n

The event was not just all about business, it was also fun and glamorous as attendees had the chance get pampered with IMAN Cosmetics “AlterEgo” beauty makeovers and try their new lip colours. They also enjoyed having their hair styled by Universal Beauty Products with their moisturising Pure Naturals hair line and cute manicures by Jamberry. Guests also got to sample delicious desserts from SweetTess Creations and drinks from Limation Organic Drinks and Murphs Famous Bloody Mary. Paychex offered their new business products and SPT Wellness gave out their vitamin samples.

I loved the products from IMAN Cosmetics’ new #AlterEgo Collection  and Universal Beauty’s Pure Naturals products. I’ve tried the Coconut Milk & Honey Hair Mask and the Shea Oil Styling Serum  and it really made a difference in my dry frizzy hair, making it moisturized, smooth and sleek! The lipsticks and lip glosses are very pigmented and long wearing. The lip colour I tried as pictured belowis a unique deep brown shade called Hipster. I’ve never  worn brown lipstick before but it was surprisingly flattering on my skin tone. It was amazing to be featured on Iman Cosmetics official Instagram!

13227227_10208214702698030_8861694636204430500_n

I personally enjoyed the empowering experience and got some useful tips in business and maintaining a healthy balance with life. Everyone was engaging, helpful and offered amazing advice and services. Thank you Dee Rivera for putting together such an inspiring event that celebrates women and beauty!

Her collection was like a breath of fresh air – light, whimsical and ethereal. Every dress moved with such grace and fluidity.  She incorporated her signature wave inspired design into delicate pleats and flounces, adding volume and textures onto her dresses.

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!
