New York Fashion Week Street Style

NYFW Street Style

Street style has long since been recognized as inspiration for designer collections and this September the fashionistas and fashionistos upped the ante with some serious swoon-worthy style. I sent my photog out to capture some New York Fashion Week street style in front of the Lincoln Center.

Check out my highlights here and visit my Pinterest board for some more fabulously turned out fashion week street style.







Stay by Stacey Angela Williams

Stay by Stacey Angela Williams offered up one of the most amazing and creative emerging collections presented during New York Fashion Week. Stay primarily features resort wear with a decidedly unique twist- each of her pieces is hand-crocheted by the designer herself.

The intricate detail, vibrant color palettes and sexy cut of each piece brings to mind thoughts of a Jamaican beach, soothing sand, and crashing waves inspiration I’m sure for this Kingston born designer.

The range includes everything from two piece suits to ensembles that could be worn for an evening of fun and according to Stacey was designed with the traveling fashionista in mind.

Stay is definitely a designer to watch!

Haute Hippie goes Upper East Side- Charlotte Ronson Fall 2011

Charlotte Ronson’s collection always offers a bit of edge and the fall 2011 collection was no exception.
Fall is the time to play dress up donning heavy wools, body skimming sweaters and of course layers. The Ronson collection added a mix what promises to be this seasons chicest layers and the collection can best be described as Haute Hippie goes Upper East Side.

The incorporation of hole-filled tights with the shortest of mini-skirts only added to the allure of the presentation.

New York Fashion Week Mataano Spring 2011

After previewing the Mataano 2010 Spring line it is immediately evident why Ayaan and Idyl Mohallim the Somali twins behind the collection are the hottest new designers to watch. Mataano means twins in their native Somali tongue and trust me either of these identical twin sisters could easily saunter down the catwalk if they ever found themselves in a pinch and one model short.

Highlights from the collection included beautiful silk organza dresses, butter soft leather shorts in the palest pink and a laced- back tee that elicited gasps of delight from many of the preview attendees.

They looked to the dessert as inspiration for the neutrals that were prevalent in the collection, with a nod to 50’s inspired style for the feminine, flirty dresses that rounded out the spring line. The collection will be available in the DC area at Carmel Boutique in spring.
