Fashion Week!


  


If you didn't know already, last week was Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City! It was to showcase the designer collections for the Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Season. If you're not a regular reader, or don't pay close attention, you wouldn't know that I L O V E fashion! My major is Marketing, and I plan on entering into the corporate Fashion industry after I graduate. Fashion Week is the one week out of the year where all my attention is fine-tuned on fashion. Nothing else really matters, and I get distracted from EVERYTHING, because I'm focused on Fashion Week! I'm going to show you some of my favorite pieces from Fashion Week, and hopefully you'll look more into that designer, and see if they have some things that would want to add to your wardrobe:

Billy Reid:

 I love Fashion Week, because not only does it showcase my favorite designers, it also opens me up to other designers who aren't the most known, or worn. Billy Reid is one of those designers, his collection this season impressed me because of the color combinations, and his use of over-sized coats, with tighter fitting shirt and pants. I also love a good menswear designer, because I prefer to wear men's clothing! These are my favorite pieces from his collection:




BCBG Max Azria:

I love BCBG, the elegant gowns with the touch of modern simplicity is so beautiful! From the craftsmanship in the necklines, the elaborate prints that beautifully execute impeccable symmetry, to the superior netting from the cuts in the gowns and pants, BCBG put on a great show, with a beautiful collection. These are my favorite pieces from BCBG Max Azria's Spring/Summer 2014 Collection:





Badgley Mischka:

When a woman's body is accentuated in a beautiful gown, that's fashion! I love Badgley Mischka's contrast between the form-fitting gown, and the gown with a little more flare! The use of jewels in the gowns, along with the precision and beauty they are placed is absolutely stunning! These are my favorite gowns from Badgley Mischka's Collection:


         


J. Crew:

If you didn't know already J. Crew is my F A V O R I T E brand! In my mind, J.Crew can do absolutely no wrong when it comes to fashion! If I was offered a job at J. Crew tomorrow, I would drop everything for it! Their collection this fashion week, was one of my favorites, not just because it's J. Crew, but because of the beautiful prints, and the complete showcase of Ready to Wear Fashion! Whenever I wear J. Crew, I feel like I can take on the world! From the time I put the outfit on, to the time I take it off, J. Crew makes pieces that can be worn all day, and be applicable to every situation throughout the workday! These are my favorite pieces from J. Crew's collection:




As you can see, I really love fashion week! To me, it's on of the most important weeks out of the year! Hopefully, next year this time or in February, I will be at Fashion Week, sitting with fashion's greats, and making my name known from a young age in the fashion industry! I'll keep you posted on how that's going. I'm a pretty goal-oriented person, so if I put my mind to it, I don't think it will be hard to do! If you didn't know, you must be invited to fashion week, it's just that coveted of an event, hopefully, an invitation will come to my mailbox, and I will have the opportunity to check that off my bucket list! Thanks for reading!
