Fashion Next

{ touchable textures at Suzanne Rae ~ make sure to check out the film on her site; it’s super-cool! }{ modern minimalism at NOMIA ~ I also loved last Fall’s chiffon inset details. }{ poetically rugged at Rochambeau ~ those handsome male models lent a surprising steaminess to the week! }{ quirky cuties at Haus Alkire ~ an inspired attempt at merging fashion + art. }{ unapologetically luxe at Bibhu Mohapatra ~ a contemporary evening wear authority. }

For several Fashion Week seasons now, I’ve been honored to team up with W Hotels to help support their Fashion Next initiative ~ a program that pinpoints emerging talent in the industry and aims to assist their ascent. This season they spotlighted Suzanne Rae, NOMIA, Rochambeau, Haus Alkire and Bibhu Mohapatra ~  and it was an honor to take in each of their collections!

Thank you to W Hotels for inviting me to be your guest again at Fashion Week, and to Acura for escorting me to the shows (my heel-weary feet thank you the most)!

     I
    went to Doll House and had the worst experience of my life.  I
    ordered a dress 3 months before my formal and it didn’t come in.  she
    told me the the dress was  customised but was told a week before my formal
    that they could not do it and was told to chose another dress from the shop
    which upset me as I had my heart set on the dress I ordered.  Thank
    you Doll House for destroying my only formal – it was the worst time.
