Academy of Art- chic, sleek and futuristic

Sleek and chic with a neutral palette best describes the Academy of Art presentation. The collection covered a range of looks from futuristic leather to bohemian layers and all manner of haute fell in between.

The leather looks brought to mind Judy Jetson as she covers Vogue magazine with just a bit of S and M thrown in for edgy measure- this new and improved Judy just a little naughty as the low cut leather looks gave up just enough to be simultaneously chic and sexy

The color blocking in this dress coat bought excitement and audible delight from most of the presentations attendees

New York Fashion Week Costello Tagliapietra Fall 2011, RTW

The “lumber jack” designers truly did their thing with their New York Fashion Week Fall RTW collection. The jersey dresses that seem to be a staple in their collections were back and I loved the use of color!
Many of the fall/winter collections offer up a neutral palette but Costello Tagliapietra added autumnal shades of orange and even bright yellow. Though there were some neutral pieces added for good measure the bulk of the collection offered welcome color that will warm even the coldest fashionista come fall.

Academy of Art presents at New York Fashion Week

Fashionistas around the globe are going through their many preparations for New York Week and I can only imagine the hectic frenzy the designers face as they nip, tuck, sew and make last minute selections of models that will bring their creations to life.

One of the shows I am particularly excited to see is the Academy of Art School of Fashion which will feature designs from several of their students.

Meet- Stephanie Gelot one of the talented students whose work will be showcased during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!

Also, the show will stream LIVE on Friday, February 11th at 8pm EST.

NYFW- Tracy Reese

NYFW Tracy Reese Fall 2010
by Lisa

Tracy Reese is hands down one of my favorite designers. Her signature cocktail dresses which seem to grace every one of her collections offer feminine touches, with the perfect balance of sexiness. reports that for Tracy “My number one inspiration is my customer,” and the fact that she keeps her customer first is evident in the Fall 2010 collection.

With a range of looks including, plaid, animal prints, lace and everything in between, save your duckets, and prepare to buy at least one piece come fall from Ms. Reese!

NYFW Altuzarra Fall 2010

by Lisa
“Twilight in Couture” (I’m a ‘tween at my very core) is the best way to describe Altuzarra Fall 2010 collection. The entire collection was black with the exception of a few red exclamation points that sauntered down the runway toward the end of show. The Goth look is something I typically admire from a far- thinking that would look GREAT, on someone else; however there was something very chic, and wearable about the collection.
