The unofficial rule of fashion is that three marks the trend. With another New York Fashion Week come and gone, we look back to the one thing that was noticed across all runway shows: the color Red!
With plenty of feminine splashes of bold red and pretty in pink shades on the runways at Donna Karan, Nanette Lepore and Porsche Design. We are absolutely in love with these flirty vibrant hues for fall!

Here and gone… another New York Fashion Week has past. As we prepare for the Fall 2014 collections from London, Milan and Paris, it’s important to take a look back at what happened in Manhattan and what it tells us about where our paychecks are headed in the second half of the year.
Designers seem to be putting their biggest emphasis on furs, furs and more furs! Soo… be prepared to either spend $20,000 on a handbag or a simple $2,000 runner-up will suit just fine. For the top-tier luxury designers, designing a bag with an with such a luxurious emphasis makes the brand’s more accessible designs all the more attractive to regular luxury customers. Past the clear texture trends, many collections focused on color and cross-body for the upcoming Fall 2014-2015 season!

After countless amounts of shows, hairspray bottles used, models cat-walking down the runway and 2 of our favorite New York designers’ shows, Donna Karan and Nanette Lepore, New York Fashion Week has come to an end. As we jump the Atlantic sea to London today, we're reflecting on what the Big Apple has served us these past 8 days!
On the catwalk, some trends emerged early:
Donna Karan returned to her urban roots for spring, delivering a beautiful collection featuring languid dresses slung with leather belts at the hips, softly constructed coats and jackets that slipped on like a robe, an inviting palette of sea blues and warm, sunbaked browns.
While Nanette Lepore drew inspiration flowing from Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du mal, Nanette cites with neo-romanticism as her biggest inspiration for her Spring/Summer 2014 collection with deep reds, soft elegant blues and clean chic whites.

New York Fashion Week has arrived, and with the Spring 2014 collections are hitting the runways. We're kicking off the celebration with our top 5 facts you should know:
1. You can tell it's New York Fashion Week by the style of the strut. Runway models actually walk differently depending on the city. In New York City, models generally walk in a quick, staccato style, whereas Paris Fashion Week models move more slowly and smoothly.
2. The same person, Ruth Finley, has been in charge of New York Fashion Week's calendar for the past 65 years. Ruth has been compiling all of of New York Fashion Week's events into one comprehensive guide — from the runway shows themselves, to after parties, and more recently, livestreams — since 1945.
3. You cannot buy tickets. Space is so tight, New York Fashion Week's tickets typically only go to celebrities, editors and fashion industry insiders; the whose who of fashion.
4. Designers pay for their own fashion shows. At Lincoln Center, the cost of just renting the venue ranges from around $15,000 - $50,000. And that doesn't include the cost of hiring stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists, and everything else that goes into making a runway show look effortless.
5. Runways are designed to acommodate the number of VIP's in attendance - not the other way around.
New York Fashion Week begins September 5th and runs until September 12th. Make sure to tune in for all the upcoming Spring 2014 trends of the season!
