Fashion Week is most definitely a time to see and be-seen. Besides having our keen fashion eyes on the runways, Joonbug.com also had our eyes on the fashionistas of NYC. We wanted to share some of the trends to wear this fall -- inspired by what we spotted during this stylish time of year! An added bonus is these pieces can be styled endless ways, so you can add your own personal style stamp to your look.
Statement pieces are here to stay. Go even bolder and bigger with jewel tone colors that bring your favorite LBD (little black dress) to the next level. This Sophie statement necklace from Glamour Girl accented with berry tones and bling is the perfect way to welcome fall. From a dress to jeans -- this will pop your look!
Every fashionista knows that a beautiful lip color is necessary with any ensemble. You can literally make a style statement with the use of the proper lip color. Lorac Alter Ego lipstick in Dominatrix is that deep wine color that will add a rich feel to your latest ensemble. Known for her beautiful shoe designs, Diana Warner Studio carries a style we spotted all over NYFW -- the bootie. With a chic fold down look in a versatile stone color -- this bootie can easily take you from desk to date night! A city girl must-have. Another New York designer, Lauren Cecchi creates chic handbags that are as versatile as they are stylish. Grey is a huge trend this season and what better way to get into the 50 Shades of Grey vibe than with a timeless yet uber chic handbag. We saw so many alluring hats at fashion week and want to get in on the trendy look minus the high end price tag. This burgundy felt fedora from Old Navy is on-trend and wallet friendly!
Mark Tango and Estel Day are two of the most kickass designers to hit the main tents at New York Fashion Week this season. They started out as a rock band, and that, combined with their hip Malibu edge, made their fashion line, Mark And Estel, a collection that is equal parts glamor and sophistifunk.
The brand has shown at New York Fashion Week three times, including this year, and each collection has packed the Lincoln Center location with hoards of celebs and industry elite.
Known for their signature edgy vibe and penchant for basing their collections off of their own rock music, Mark and Estel showed us a behind-the-scenes peek at what it takes to put up a show at one of fashion’s most iconic locations.
On Monday, September 8th, Nolcha Fashion Week took over the Eyebeam Atelier in Chelsea for their New York Fashion Week collections. The designers of the evening were Rinat Brodach, Mariana Valentina, Mimi Tran, Sofía Arana, and Schuyler 4. From A-line dresses, to flashy evening gowns, and sensual sheer fabrics, the designers made sure they left their mark this Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Week.
Since 2009, Fashion Palette has been showcasing a broad range of Australia's best new designers at New York Fashion Week. This iconic presentation provides rising talents a venue to showcase their collections to industry-elite. It also allows for the buyer, bloggers, and editors to see new work on the cusp of greatness. Each season Fashion Palette showcases both women's ready-to-wear as well as bridal and couture, and Joonbug.com was lucky enough to grab front-row ok second row seats to the event!
Last week, Fashion Palette New York presented its audience with several collections of an array of evening and bridal attire. With a showcase of seven of the leading Australian designers, the show was beautiful from beginning to end.
The show began with pieces from Leah Da Gloria. Her work was an excellent way to begin to the program. Her long, eloquent gowns were phenomenal. The silhouettes were beautiful and the detail was undeniable. The bridal pieces seemed to be perfect for a young bride with low backs and see through mesh insets for subtle sexiness.
In his signature style, Bibhu Mohapatra wowed at NYFW S/S2015. Immaculate drapery, rich vibrant silks, and divine colors floated across the runway with ethereal grace and effortless beauty. Formerly a designer for J. Mendel, Mohapatra has never seemed to disappoint with his collections since the inception of his eponymous line in 2008.
This season the collection favored floor and midi length evening gowns in heavily-draped, almost metallic silks. Hints of geometric prints with carefully placed florals added interest to many of the read-to-wear designs. Elaborate and chic matching two-sets were also a highlight of the collection, and some of our personal favorite looks. The color scheme expanded from black and white to muted neutrals and vibrant jeweled reds and blues.
New York Fashion Week has come and gone all too soon. Seven days of elegant, fantastical and unwavering couture. Don’t stress if you missed out Joonbug.com has your recap of the best shows and the jaw-dropping moments of NYFW S/S 2015.
1. Michael Kors goes Retro
Kors reinforces the fact that happy people are the prettiest people with his “optimist chic” collection. In today’s stressful world, Kors strives to bring joy with his retro line- and that is just what he is doing. Kors brings us back to the 50’s with classic A-lines, sewn in florals and retro plaid. This collection is genius because it is day and evening wear for real women. There was not one frown in the audience after his nostalgic parade.
Kristin Cavallari helped bring New York Fashion Week to a close with the launch of her own shoe line. The reality star turned designer presented her Kristin Cavallari by Chinese Laundry Spring 2015 collection on Sep. 11 at Row NYC Hotel.
Sporting a print crop top with a matching pencil skirt, a leather jacket, and her own “Laney” booties, the mother of two was all smiles as she mingled with guests and showcased her new collection.
Blogger Perez Hilton, Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez, singer Lily Lane, and Eku Edewor we're just of the few celebs that came out to support Kristin. Chinese Laundry CEO Bob Goldman also attended the preview party.

This past Tuesday, September 9th, Nolcha put on a unique show of new designers. All the designers managed to remain distinctive with their various designs and styles, which can be hard with so many different designers in one show.
Charles and Ron began the show with their fun and flirty looks for different occasions. The runway was littered with summery patterns and floral pieces. There were a few exposed midriffs and definitely some exposed legs. The line was perfect for a summer in the sun whether it was at the beach or in the city.
