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!

Dannijo X Cointreau La Soiree

 

 

Summer is the perfect time to throw parties, or as the French will call it – soirees. The Art of La Soiree with Dannijo X Cointreau event was an elegant affair to get inspired on how to throw a beautiful cocktail party!

Who would know style better than Danielle and Jodie Snyder – the sisters behind the trendy jewelry label “Dannijo” themselves? Their jewelry is sold on Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman among several high end stores. Celebrities such as Rihanna, Beyonce and Kendall Jenner are also fans of their jewelry line.

Just as exquisite as their fashion label, their event definitely set the bar onto how to add a touch of glamour to hosting a party. Cointreau – the famous French liqueur brand also provided special cocktails and recipes for us to try. We even got to mix our own signature drink with our preferred ingredients at the bar. Cointreau has a sweet, orange flavor which tastes great when it’s mixed with fruit juices or even muddled together with fresh berries, citrus and herbs. It does make it the perfect drink for summer!

I really loved how beautiful and grand the whole place looked. There were harpists playing melodious music along with the DJ.  Arches of real orange branches decorated the ceiling,  Dannijo’s latest pieces of jewelry adorned statues of greenery and there were crystals, flowers and candles everywhere.

We also were invited to sit down to have dinner at an opulent dining table that was absolutely breathtaking. French lavender was the inspiration behind it so was laden with  violet goblets, amethyst crystals and floral arrangements within glass prisms. To top it off, we were served with lavender lemonade mixed with the Cointreau.  Did you know that the lavender flower is edible? It adds a lovely flavor to drinks and food. I  just loved how it all the intricate details came together to present the color in such an elegant way. Lavender also happens to be one of my favorite flowers for its evocative scent and relaxing properties.

I absolutely adored everything about the event – from the stunning decor, amazing cocktails and delicate French food. I soaked up some wonderful ideas on how to throw a stunning party that will definitely be a hit this summer!

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Jay Manuel himself. He is so warm, gracious and cheerful in person! I asked him for tips on how to look great in front of the camera. His answer was “ Be genuine with your emotions. If you want to smile, think of something happy. The most important aspect of your expression is in your eyes.” So there you go ladies! A picture perfect tip from the expert of America’s Next Top Model, himself.

For the rest of the day we were pampered with amazing beauty, hair, nail and makeup services. Jay Manuel Beauty experts provided makeovers and beauty consultations. We also got to sample some of the exquisite products from his make up line. A unique aspect of Jay Manuel Beauty is that it uses crushed diamonds, pearls and precious stones to nourish and make the skin glow! I also love how the packaging is so sleek and compact so it won’t take up too much space in your make up bag. There’s a diverse, dynamic range of colors and shades for your eyes, lips and face to suit your skin colour.

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.

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.

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.

Singer Inas X Album Shoot with Fadil Berisha

13445299_10208391444556466_6788651350705777799_n

 

13450047_10208391189470089_9089015682854669150_n

 

Inas X is an incredibly talented, emerging pop and R&B singer that has just been signed under rapper Fetty Wap’s record label, RGF Productions. Her songs are co-produced with music giantTimbaland himself and her first ever single, “Love Is” has already been climbing up the dance charts.

 

I was fortunate enough to work with her by shooting behind the scenes for her album cover photo shoot alongside one of New York’s top fashion photographers Fadil Berisha.

 

He was gracious enough to give me some tips on photography and take some shots of the stunning singer. She’s a natural in front of the camera. Apart from her beauty and talent she’s also has a warm, bubbly and caring personality.

 

So you can imagine, for a young photographer like me to be around such influential and gifted people, it was a wonderful blessing and exhilarating experience!

 

I hope you like how the pictures from the shoot turned out!
