New York Fashion Week came in by storm, with the snowstorms taking over the streets of New York City and with fashion shows, presentations, and parties. Below is a recap of the must-attend events from fashion week.

Marc Jacobs

The designer that needs no introduction, pulled it off again and closed New York Fashion Week with a bang. Marc Jacob’s fall/winter collection went back to his grunge roots that made him a star in the first place. Not to mention all-of-the buzz around Kendall Jenner’s see-through shirt.


Cynthia Rowley

Cynthia Rowley’s presentation was simply amazing and I loved every piece. My words will fail, so I leave it to the designer herself to describe the collection:

“Fashion evolves at such a fast pace, and I'm always interested in exploring fresh new ways to show the collection. We shot the looks ahead of time so that when people arrived at the Diamond Horseshoe they had already seen the collection. We presented a short film we made in an environment that was a visual feast for all.

A moonbow motif runs throughout the collection. It seemed so optimistic, happy and romantic at the same time. I describe the collection as sporty glamorous with bonded piques, embellished rainbows, stain leaf appliqués and bonded cashmere cardigans that are mixed with polished leather culottes and layered sweaters that are like puzzle pieces that fit together.“ - Cynthia Rowley


Elements Showcase

Kicking off fashion week was the Elements Showcase, your one-stop for up-and-coming breakthrough beauty, health, and lifestyle brands. My favorite booth this year was Indie Lee, “an eco-friendly skincare collection comprised of the finest all-natural ingredients around the world, the line is designed to enhance the face and body with gratifying green glamour and allows you to unleash your inner and outer beauty by combining style and sustainability without sacrifice.” The founder, Indie Lee has an amazing story of surviving a brain tumor to bring happiness and joy to women around the world, one beauty product at a time.


Wildfox

Wildfox Couture was one of my favorite shows and not just because they gave out yummy cupcakes before the show. Every piece was fun and flirty and something that I would actually wear in real life from the rugged yet comfy sweaters to the throwback overalls and hipster dresses. Nicky Hilton graced the front row and every blogger to know was there.


Heather Lawton

One of the most rewarding things about fashion week is finding the next big thing. After leaving Heather Lawton’s fashion presentation, I was convinced that I had. The clothes were sexy and provocative while being relatable and told a story of a girl who is fun, fearless, and ready to stir the pot. I’m excited to watch her fashion star rise.
