Fashion Month Comes to an End: My Recap

And just like that, Fashion Month has flown by! From New York to Paris– the fall/winter 2015 season is looking cozy and eccentric with a wide assortment of looks that we’re all sure to be flaunting in one way or another. This semester has been keeping me on my toes with exciting new adventures between all the work and school that has been on my plate. Despite these detours, I was still able to still catch shows during New York Fashion Week. This week I’ll be recapping a few of my adventures at the shows.

Daniel Silverstain’s presentation in SoHo was first destination this season. The pop-up space was brimming with glasses full of white wine and a crowd waiting to be seen.  When the music stopped the crowd became hushed. The cameras clicking furiously were the only sounds until the first model rounded the corner and the music resumed. Model by model walked the runway and at the end lined up against the wall for onlookers to take closer views at each look. Silverstain’s fall/winter collection boasts of a punk-villain vibe. It’s hard edge looks have a “I’m going to a concert” look but the sharp tailoring speaks of a cool action figure that has super powers– hence the bold, bright pops of green and blue. A very specific group of women would wear his fall/winter line. My favorite was the emerald/black dress with feathers on the shoulders. Just the right amount of feminine and tough touches.

The Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop

Marc Jacobs is at it again with his clever marketing ploys! This weekend he opened a Pop-up Tweet-Shop in Soho for his fragrance line, Daisy. The catch? The store only took social payments. If you tweeted, used Instagram, Facebook, etc.  and tagged it with #MJdaisychain, you would receive free samples of his fragrance. As if that wasn’t a good enough gift, manicurists were on premises giving free manicures. Baristas from Bluestone Lane NY was handing out coffee from their adorable, solar-powered cart. A prairie backdrop with Daisy-inspired props took up many of the guests’ time—as people would hop in and out of the set taking silly and serious pictures with daisies, giant fragrance bottles, and tree stumps. This is totally normal in Manhattan, right?  Any Instagram photos with the #MJdaisychain tagline would appear on computer screens in the store and would give guests the options of instantly printing out the photos to keep. We had such a blast and ended up staying for a very long time. What a fun, clever event! It got me talking about it—so mission accomplished, Marc! #Killedit
