Joanna Mastroianni Brings Flirty Dresses to the Runway

Inspired by the architecture of Gaudi (see images of his work here), Joanna Mastroianni designed a beautiful collection full of black, white, Mediterranean blue with tangerine pops. Her cocktail dresses had everything from A-line cuts to one-shoulder caftans over skinny jeans. The sweetheart dresses had impeccable tailoring and even hand-sewn embroidery. Transparent tops brought on the sex appeal making this flirty line not just for girls. It is a younger market fashion line, but held every aspect of sophistication. Each detail was well thought out and perfectly placed. Models strut down the runway as TLC’s “No Scrubs” started jamming from the speakers.  I’d wear her pieces to a cocktail party, date or a gala event.

GORGEOUS! See for yourself in the below video.

Gabriela Perezutti brought on her Uruguay roots at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week when presenting her Candela line at The Box. Long, straight silhouettes graced the models for the Fall/Winter 2013 season. This time around, Candela decided to go the nautical route. Strategically positioned throughout the quaint room—journalists and spectators were able to meander paying close attention to each intricate detail involved in the looks.

As a collection—this has to be one of my favorites so far. The feminine touches and beachside elegance made it a desirable line for all women. The soft silhouettes and quirky details made each look appropriate for summer sunset walks as well as cocktail parties. Both casual chic and glamour—Candela has set the perfect setting for Spring/Summer 2014.

5:31 JÉRÔME Presents Floral Eye Candy for Spring

Fellow Fashion Institute of Technology alum, Jerome LaMaar, debuted his first collection 5:31 JÉRÔME at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.  His passion for fashion and design went hand in hand as he put together a beautiful collection.

The models stood on a platform in the middle of a dimly lit room at the Chelsea Market studio as spectators walked around in a circle to catch glimpses of the looks. Greenery adorned with pink flowers scattered the ground. The models each wore a different form of vine-wrapped high heels which made the looks each tie into the theme perfectly. The “Hyper Feminine” theme embodied an edgy enchanted neo-romantic look. It was very girly, and a theme that I am all about—loved it!
